Art and Music, Earth Day 2023

Multiple performances bring delightful and thought provoking live music to the Eastsound Waterfront on Earthday, Sat. April 22nd. The celebration opens at 10am with an instrumental violin concert by Joel Gamble accompanying a contemplative earth-themed art exhibit in the Emmanuel Parish Hall.



Art and sculpture works by John Berry, Shannon Belthor, Robert Dash, Inese Wescott, Jill Bliss,  Zacharya Leck, Maria Bullock, Eric Morris, George Post and others will be on exhibit inside the Hall and around the labyrinth.



Mid-day, enjoy the Eco-Folk music of Irthlingz with Sharon Abreu and Michael Hurwicz at Emmanuel’s Benson Hall, at noon – all ages welcome.


In the afternoon, a new concert opens in Emmanuel Parish Hall and overflows with transcendent wooden flute and hand pan drum ethereal music with Burke Mulvaney and Josie Dow from 1-2:30pm in the Chapel.



In Waterfront Park during the afternoon, a special multi-musician performance, Propaganda for the Sky, brings together artists and performers in loops and layers of live and recorded voice, instrument, and spoken word to reveal newly created sound pieces performed outdoor, under the sky. Coordinated with SOULDARTSPACE by John Raymond Berry.
