"An Evening of Southwest Music" at Ganondagan State Historic Site Wednesday 17 August 2016

Seneca Art & Culture Center

doors open 6:30 pm
Tickets at the door or online 

$10 general; $7 Friends of Ganondagan members

This must-see concert is a first-ever performance at Ganondagan by duo singer-songwriter Shelley Morningsong (N. Cheyenne/ Dutch) and Fabian Fontenelle (Zuni/Omaha). They are on a limited tour schedule, so seeing them at Ganondagan is a rare opportunity! 

With a voice compared to Buffy Sainte-Marie and Bonnie Raitt, Morningsong and partner Fontenelle bring traditionally influenced and contemporary songs, Native American flute, storytelling, and dancing, including the breathtaking Zuni Eagle Dance performed by Fontenelle, an original member of the American Indian Dance Theatre.

Be in awe as Fontenelle depicts a profound imagery of a "Spirit World" with the spoken word in his fluent Zuni.

The Seneca Art & Culture Center at Ganondagan is located at 7000 County Road 41 in Victor, NY.
