Mama Gina Concert on Friday night
Mama Gina a/k/a Nine Toes the Bard is thrilled to return to All World Acres. She
will regale you with tales from the road. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll hug
each other. Bring your wonderful Self, your friends, your family, your rattles,
shakes and drums.
Mama Gina is a Bard and Fearless Storyteller who travels the country, strumming her 12 string acoustic, tapping frame drum and djembe, singing her truth with a side of blues, and sharing the mysteries that the Gods, Goddesses and other extraordinary souls whisper in her ear. She will share songs from her previous endeavors, as well as highlighting new, zany songs from her new CD "Nine Toes the Bard". Come celebrate the Bard, and bring your drums, shakes, and tambourines!
