On Saturday, November 8th, Woodland played a very special Bad Faeries Masquerade Ball featuring OMNIA ! The event was packed out the doors….Videos and Audio Coming Soon! Here’s the fiest pics:
The bohemian PaganFolk band “OMNIA” revolves around the many varied compositions, stories and musical abilities of Jenny and Steve Sic Evans van der Harten. Together with their band consisting of the crazy Didgeman Daphyd Crow (slideridoo, vocals and percussion), Rob van Barschot (drums and percussion) and assisted by their amazing live-crew, they tour throughout Europe and beyond. OMNIA brings a musical message of respect for nature, personal liberty and freedom of thought and expression for all. In the words of Steve Sic: “Nothing is sacred, only nature!” Keep an eye out for the new album, “Earth Warrior,” out soon!
Emerging from the misty old-growth forests of America’s Pacific northwest, WOODLAND is a mythic world fusion ensemble featuring the songcraft of guitarist Emilio Miller-Lopez and singer/harpist Kelly Miller-Lopez. For more than 13 years, Woodland has been enchanting audiences throughout the US and Europe with an ornate blend of original and traditional melodies woven with meaningful bardic poetry. Across the United States, Woodland co-produces large-scale themed events which are immersive concert experiences featuring vibrant lightshows, theatrical dance performances and live musical rituals led by their seasonal poetic invocations.
