"[Bunny] stimulates in students an acute awareness of their own natural ability to make music while learning to recognize the subtleties of high and low, long and short, fast and slow sounds, rhythms, identify the emotions that accompany these sounds, and to recognize how music puts people in relationship with each other and with the natural world all around them..." Jamestown Sun Review Bunny was well received for the festival so we wanted to bring her back...instills ...an appreciation of how the silences in between music notes give sounds 'color', depth, definition and impact, which helps to make a truly memorable and dynamic performance." Felicia Sargent, Director, National Buffalo Museum

ANNE MILLER MUSEUM Bunny's cultural presentation - "During two days of many school classes from all around the area who came to visit and learn about the
White Buffalo Calf Woman, [Bunny also told] the story of the Three Sisters (corn, beans and squash) and share in music. Many classes wrote the Museum to say that Bunny's performance was
their favorite open house museum presentation that day,
(second only to the homemade ice cream sampling station).

Why does Bunny play the "Native American" flute?

Just as a "French horn" is a particular type of musical instrument, "Native American flute" refers to a particular type/style of musical instrument.  Also the style of storytelling dubbed "Native American Storytelling" does not guarantee presentation by an enrolled member of a Federally-recognized tribal member. 

A reviewer with the Rapid City Journal  dubbed Bunny's music as "Lakota-inflective Folk" which  aptly describes the type and subject matter of  the original music that has come to her in dreams which she shares often with flute music (which also came in dreams along with the lyrics and music of her songs).  Her music comes to build bridges among races of all people, Red, Yellow,  White and Black, and educate, show honor and respect for human BE-ings, Lakota and ALL other earth- nurturing, Native American and/or indigenous or other life honoring ways, perspectives and cultures. 
 

"I"m white, but I can't prove it."

Although Bunny has a rich mix of first nations ancestry, continues to learn from, shares with and associates with many well respected "Federally-recognized"  Native American Indian tribal elders, chiefs, and medicine people, and she has  researched the  stories and teachings that stem from cultural perspectives that she may share in workshops or performances,  please know that the music and the original songs she shares (and the stories and teachings that come with them) have come to her in dreams. 

While she plays Native American flutes in music that is enjoyed and endorsed by many prominent card carrying Native Americans,  Bunny Sings Wolf's music does NOT claim to be "Native American made"  as is now specified by the U.S. Government.   IF it is your desire to listen only to music made by an enrolled member of a "federally-recognized"  "Native American" musician, you may find them through a web search.

  LETTERS OF RECOMMENDATION:

(click to Page 2 - even more Teacher Evaluations here also)!

"Greetings Arts Council,  ...It gives me great pleasure and honor to tell you about Bunny and her musical talents.  She has preformed at our store in Rapid City South Dakota and has made her music available through our book and music store. 

Bunny's music is only unique to her own style and she is a very compassionable person as is evidenced in her music.  I strongly believe that she will make an excellent role model for the Arts Council.  She has a wonderful personality and its charismatic and can communicate to others very well.  Our collection of music is by far one of the most extensive collections of Native American music in the area.  We offer approximately 1400 titles of music and now Bunny's music is part of our collection..." Marty J. Frogg, Manager/Coordinator, Prairie Edge Book and Music Store, He Sapa Distribution

March 27, 2002 -  -  -  "On numerous occasions over the past two and a half years,
my wife Judy and I have been a part of an appreciative audience for Bunny Sings Wolf's performances at the Alpine Inn in Hill City...plus this year we have driven from Rapid City to Deadwood on many occasions to view her performances at  B.B. Cody's.  Always, we have found the trips worth the effort!

Each performance was unique and a very special experience.  Bunny relates directly to the audience, tailoring her selection of songs for that individual occasion and the specific audience she entertains.  For example, we have watched her pay special attention to young adults and children, often inviting them to come on stage and play the drum or rattle with her.  Of course, the audience loved this personal touch!

In planning our wedding last summer, we hired Bunny to sing.  The highlight of her performance was this:  Bunny surprised us with a song she had written especially for our wedding day.  This song - "Our Special Day" - Listen to a sample of: Special Day captured the essence of our day. our love, and our relationship with Bunny, the performer and our friend.  This more than anything else I could say captures the essence of Bunny, the performer, and Bunny, the professional.  In a word, she cares about each performance as a reflection of a special time and place.

Of course, Bunny is always professional, punctual, and a pleasure!  You will not be disappointed with the manner in which Bunny captures the moment for your audience.  To be specific. she will do for our audiences exactly what she did for our wedding: provide a personal, professional performance!

In closing, both my wife Judy and I recommend Bunny Sings Wolf without reservation for any venue in which an audience gathers to hear music "that matters."  We whole-heartedly recommend to any worthwhile venue the passion, the caring songs, the soul-stirring lyrics, and memorable experience of a Bunny Sings Wolf performance. Your audiences will thank you.  Sincerely yours, Alfed R. Boysen, Ed.D., Professor of English

. . . from Old World Company, Wally Matush (originator of the now famous Alpine Inn)
"I have known Bunny since 1985...Her communications skills proved to be excellent with our guests.  Bunny also did some very fine drawings for me.  I believe her to be one of the finest artists I have known.

Bunny . . . has performed at the Alpine Inn in Hill City, and other private engagements.  The guests have enjoyed her songs, which she composed herself.  She expressed the ability to involve the guests in the background of her lyrics, teaching them the history of her songs.

I have found that our guests have spoken very highly of her artistic qualities.  Bunny is a very accommodating and flexible person."

. . . from previous Weston County Library Director, Carma L. Shoop
"I am writing a letter in support of Bunny Sings Wolf.  I am the Director of Weston County Library, and was also a teacher for seven years.  Bunny Sings Wolf performed a the Grand Opening of the newly remodeled Children's Library March of 2001.
Dynamic and excellent do not even begin to describe the vibrant and original performance which Bunny gives to her audience.
The Grand Opening was attended by a wide age group and a diverse population. Bunny has a talent for gathering in those around her.  The age and place in the community made no difference in how attentive they were to her performance.  The majority of her music is original and besides her superior rich voice she uses a wide variety of instruments. During her performance she also encouraged the audience to participate by coming up and while using her instruments participated while she sang.

While teaching I attended many of the Arts Council programs so I am familiar with the  talented artists that perform for the Wyoming Arts Council and I highly recommend Bunny Sings Wolf."

...from Weston County Museum Director, Bobbie Jo Tysdal
"It is with great pleasure I write this letter of recommendation for Bunny Sings Wolf. She took part with her time and talents...here at the museum for our annual Living History Days and our annual Candlelight Living Christmas. Our history days are two days of hands-on experiences for school children from Weston, Crook, and Campbell counties, as well as rural schools from South Dakota, the includes about 500 students, t4achers, and parent chaperones.

During history days Bunny performed her own brand of folk music as well as traditional Native American music. Bunny made several visits to the museum prior to the event to plan and organize her presentation to the school. children.  She was very excited about working with the Weston County Museum District to provide this opportunity to the children and heir teachers.  She tied her program in with our overall theme of Native American and Pioneer days of our local region.  She was very knowledgeable on the cultures she was portraying and the teachers were very pleased with her programs.  Her relationship with her audience was very special.  Her communication with the children, which ranged in age from Kindergarten through eighth graders, was exceptional.  She was able to adapt her program immediately to whatever age group was presented.  She physically interacted wit the students by allowing them to "help" her with her music by playing some of her instruments and singing with her.  A large majority of the thank you letters we received from the sutdents and teachers indicated Bunny was their favorite station.

During the Candlelight  Christmas celebration Bunny performed for approximately 350 people throughout the evening [by playing her original compositions on her beautiful White Buffalo Native American flutes, in full Native American  regalia].  Once again she came to the museum ahead of time to prepare and plan her presentation as we were locating her in a different area of the museum for this.  She performed a wide variety of music for this event, including some of her newest [original] music.  The response was, once again, very favorable from the audiences.  Many people asked me to have her return for future events.  Bunny is a very personable and experienced performer.  Her communications skills and knowledge of her subjects are exceptional.  I look forward to working with her in the future."

Most asked question:    "How can I get a copy of Bunny's latest new songs that I  heard at her concerts?"

Most of Bunny's ORIGINAL SONGS (upward of 450 at last count) have "arrived" usually at 3:00 a.m., in the form of dreams  since Bunny has been living at home in the Black Hills.  Waking her from deep sleep - playing in her head - complete with words and music, she records them, to learn and share later. In honoring this unique music gift, Bunny feels a solemn responsibility to the Creator to use her voice and carry these songs to as many people as possible.  Lyrics of some of these songs, yet unreleased on CD, may be found on Unreleased Lyrics page.
