Spiral Rhythm

Spiral Rhythm is a group of friends that have been singing together for over two decades. They began singing at bonfires, gatherings, and festivals.  Over time they have developed a unique sound complete with deep, multi-textured chants and explosive drums.  Spiral Rhythm has evolved and changed, but their goal has always been the same to raise the spirit through voice and song.

Mama Gina

Mama Gina is a full-time singer/songwriter, fearless storyteller, and wanderlust. With down-to-earth, bluesy vocals, a bit of humor, and straight-ahead, rhythmic, acoustic guitar, djembe, and frame drum, she tells the true stories that fall into her head and heart. She sings of our responsibility to nurture both the mundane and the Divine. She really does have voices in her head. Through her music, you will meet Nine Toes the Bard, a 15th-century Welsh lass who once dealt with a Dragon. Nine Toes now travels the world, singing tales of love and battle, Pirates and Vikings, damsels and elves, trolls, and that wicked Dragon that left her one digit shy. And you will encounter the intra-galactic Bard, Ava/She Walks the Stars, who sings of how very human we still are, no matter how far we step into the void and into the future. Come laugh, weep, laugh some more, and sing along with Mama Gina and all her alter-egos! mamaginamusic.com mamagina.bandcamp.com patreon.com/mamagina

Meren King

“Meren Edna Marie King is a singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist presently making Music in Ocala, Florida, USA.

Born in Long Beach, California, Meren has been a traveler most of her life. From the West Coast to the East Coast and every US State in-between, Meren accompanied her parents as they worked with traveling circuses and sideshows during the first three years of her life, and then as a teen searching for her kith and kin she traveled even more extensively, and as an adult reaching into Canada and even across the pond to Europe.

Meren has been a part of the Pagan communities in most of the places she has lived and says that her faith contains a little bit of everything that she has seen and heard and read and experienced. Following no particular pathway or religion, her church is the wild places of the world, and her deities are all around her. Believing that we are all Energy, and everything is a part of everything else, she brings this sensibility to her music and stories, sharing her perspectives and beliefs with the world.

Music and dance have always been a part of Meren’s life, although it is just within the last 15 years that she has really pursued music as her Lifepath. With Phambly across the Globe and with many worldwide musical influences, Meren’s songs and stories show you what is most dear to her heart: her Phambly, her Faith, and her Hopes for Our World.

From Folk to Blues to World Beat and more, the songs she sings and the stories she tells will take you on a journey of the mind and heart. Come on along and join her on her adventures across this twirling Earth.

Meren King is the Musical Coordinator for Trees of Avalon Gather
