Bunny Sings Wolf summer 2011 concert - standing strong, carrying new songs to share another day ....

Mitakuye Oyasin . . . Thus we come
into relationships
to mirror and reflect one another. 
We are tools for each other's growth; the more we can truly know this, the faster is our movement.
There is no need for judgment of a particular relationship as right or wrong.
Each relationship is merely the mirror we need at a particular time
for our Highest Good.

The Journey Museum Theatre, Rapid City, SD

Playing one of  Four White Buffalo Flutes custom made for Bunny by Mark Nelson

Singing the world debut of Randy Sparks' new song "Just Americans,"  with sister and New Christy Minstrels' vocalist Becky Jo Benson - Minstrels recorded it later for PBS show "This Land is Your Land" live on stage  with Woody Guthrie -  which was first aired on national TV December 2002.  Becky tours year round with Randy Sparks' New Christy Minstrels (You can find their tour schedule at  www.thenewchristyminstrels.com).  

At this rare  reunion concert  in  APRIL 2002 - Bunny's out of state Fans came all the way from Colorado and South Dakota to the remote Wyoming prairie to hear the  sisters on stage together once again for this intimate performance, where their multiple and diverse talents music styles harmonized at the Newcastle Country Club.  A GREAT time!

The sisters separate music travels with festivals and concerts always seem to put these two on opposite sides of the continent as well as at different ends of the FOLK genre .  Becky's music style is CLASSIC Folk - Traditional, while Bunny's self-fashioned  original  Folk-Alter-Native style has taken Bunny  on her own unique solo music journey.!

After this cultural concert of Bunny' original Lakota-inflected songs, ending with "White Buffalo Peace Song" sing-along, the majority of the audience followed Bunny, joined by her opening act, to a change of dress and music style - to a local brew pub for a contemporary rollicking  - almost all night jam session of  spontaneous dearly remembered songs (from Stevie Nix to Willie Nelson with some jazz, old country and blue grass tunes, and some pop 50's and rock in roll tossed in for good measure).  This was certainly a multi-cultural experience and what  FUN!!!

 White Eagle Seventh Generation Multi-Cultural Pow Wow, August, 2002 Des Moines

14 tribes represented at this Pow Wow, to which Bunny performed at camp under a full moon her "Moon" song and just before closing ceremony, her solo "NOW is the time"   drum song in the circle, concluding with her "White Buffalo Peace Song"

Bunny's songs speak in beauty of natural and life nurturing spaces and the importance of living ways of cultivating peace and harmony among all our relations.  Mitakuye Oyasin  (Lakota-we are all related).

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.

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.
