Renowned Native violinist Arvel Bird will perform twice during the Honoring Traditions Eastern Woodland Celebration powwow in Lancaster, Ohio, this weekend.
Anywhere from 20 to 30 Native nations are expected to show up to the annual event, according to the Lancaster Eagle-Gazette.
“People have been asking us to get him to come to our celebration every year,” Everhart said. “But we couldn’t until this year.”
Bird was born in Idaho and raised in Utah. Originally trained as a classical violinist, he was inspired by Appalachian, bluegrass and Celtic styles. He is also a Native American flutist.
Today he blends his classical training and Native American roots into his own songs, Everhart said.
Arvel will perform his well-known blend of Native American, Celtic, and Folk music throughout the day on Saturday and Sunday from his award-winning CDs,– Animal Totems, Animal Totems 2, Rakish Paddy, Red River Jig and Ride Indian Ride, his website said.
