Fundraiser for White Ravens Project Music by Gabriel Kastelle w/ R.D. King
August 18 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm$10
This is a fundraiser for the White Raven Archives Project “It’s a WRAP”
“. . . Mr. Kastelle has done an impressive amount of independent research on Brothertown, our founders and our ancestral tribal histories. This research, together with his musical degrees and long time involvement in shape note singing make Mr. Kastelle uniquely qualified to recognize, understand, and address the many intricacies involved in the presenting and “re-remembering” of this important part of Brothertown culture. We must also add that Gabriel Kastelle’s enormous respect and deep reverence for our Brothertown founders, history and the travails of our people make his presentation all that much more compelling. . .”
