ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
On the wing with Spirit Wing they soar when they sing--and it's not surprising to anyone who has witnessed one of their passionate performances that they were "born" into being by a shared sense of history.

Spirit Wing, a contemporary Native American Music group, was formed in May, 2000, when a Lenape Clan Mother asked them to convert a poem she had written, words of remembrance about her family's experience attending the Carlisle Indian School in the early 1900's, into a musical composition. The overwhelming response Spirit Wing received when they debuted this song in front of an audience convinced them that they should pursue this genre of music as it affected them as deeply as it moved those who listened.

In the following months Barbara and Barry composed many songs relating to Indian history, spirituality, and culture. Spirit Wing began performing at Native American and traditional Folk Music venues with great success. They also perform at educational facilities, such as day care centers and libraries in the greater Philadelphia area, where they do storytellig and sing both contemporary and traditional songs.
Performance experiences include the Philadelphia Folk Fetival, Nassau Community College Folk Festival, 1st Annual 7th Generation Pow Wow at East Stroudsburg University, Penn State Delaware Campus, Graehme Park Native American Festival, Southeastern Cherokee Confederation Festival, Reading Museum's Annual American Indian Festival, and an "encore" performance at the Lenape Honoring Festival at Cheyney University where they received a standing ovation.

Other performance events include the Lenape Museum in Allentown and Radford University, Radford, Va. They havereleasesd their first CD, Ancient Spirit Voices, and a Web page is being developed to provide historical information relevant to their music. They have also added Chris Hawley to help round out their live sound with bass guitar and percussion.

Spirit Wing's actual performances include introductory storytelling in conjunction with their music whether it's about how the song was written, the experience that led to the creation of the composition, historical references, spirituality, and/or culture. They perform original, cover, and traditional music that has been "gifted" to them in the "old way."

Barbara and Barry also peform tradtional and contemporary Native American music and storytelling at Day Care Centers, Schools, Church's and other civic organizations.
Barbara, Barry and Chris are very serious about their music. They strive to correct the many misconceptions people have been taught by movies, TV, and stereotyping regarding Native American Indians. They continually seek guidance from elders to ensure the information is valid.

We hope your enjoy our music as much as we have enjoyed sharing it with you.

Wanishi (Thank you)

Music of the Soul
Third attempt to give FIVE stars; I think I got it this time. Here's my review again....

These are songs that touch the heart and, of course, spirit of the listener, by focusing on what is common to humankind. The music is enjoyable and memorable. I especially like the title track, "Hear My Prayer Creator," "Fly Away Crow," "Sacred Ground," and "Trail of Tears." Beautfully done, Spirit Wing. Wanishi (and Todah--that's "Thank you" from my people, in Hebrew).

It's an over all excellent recording.
All you have to do is listen to the album and it speaks for itself. I can't wait until they come out with another.
