Arvel Bird is coming to La Veta to support the ongoing work of Huajatolla Heritage Foundation (HHF). The Foundation has been deeply involved in the past two years in partnership with a Denver organization, Warm Cookies of the Revolution in promoting the Puentes (Bridges) project to bring Huerfano County together as a community. Arvel is an amazing musical demonstration of how seemingly disparate parts can create an amazing whole! Although Arvel travels worldwide, he has deep appreciation for grass roots efforts. His support and understanding of the importance of the Puentes project make him an ideal artist for this important fundraising performance to benefit HHF!
Arvel Bird's “Celtic Indian” brand is a reflection of his mixed-blood American Indian and Celtic heritages -- With his violin, fiddle, Native flutes and Irish whistles, Arvel weaves a powerful tapestry of music and stories. From music festivals to concert halls, audiences get a glimpse into his Native American heart and Scottish soul.
Classically trained as a violinist, Arvel Bird's compositions and performances are a confluence of styles informed by his extraordinary love of diversity—from traditional Celtic tunes and bluegrass standards to his original Native American folk and Celtic rock orchestrations.
