Video & Photos by Syd Woodward & Hemmie Lindholm

On a beautiful summer’s day in 2018, hundreds of people gathered on Salt Spring Island to experience music and community in the golden glow of Stowel Lake Farm. This convergence brought together folk singers from the far north and south to share stories and exchange confidences in the July air. Featuring performances from Tonelec, La Charo and Nacion Ekeko from South America, Rising Appalachia from the “dirty south”, and Dustin Thomas from Minnesota, this beautifully diverse group of artists shared the stories of their homes and their hopes for their planet as an amber afternoon turned into a beautiful sunset evening.

Here we present the performance of Rising Appalachia’s song “Medicine” featuring La Charo.

Have a listen and stayed tuned for more live performances from this wonderful gathering!
