Nels-thank you for a gorgeous afternoon with you, Beethoven and the Kamuela Philharmonic orchestra!Nancy
A beautiful evening at the Loretto Chapel last night with cellist Nelson Denman, songbird Consuelo Luz and guitarist Joaquin Gallegos.Carolyn
Dear Nelson, I think you have written this beautifully and presented the goal well. I only hope people can slow down from their busy lives to pay attention to the rapidity of the global disintegration and realize that making money is a fool’s game. Creation, preservation, conservation, and replanting and replacing all that has been lost is our only hope to survive as a species. Bonne chance!
Beautiful show, Nelson! Your versatile music with Consuelo and Lisa was marvelous.Jesse
Nelson’s music opens doors of consciousness, singing the oneness of the Earth and her wonders. His voice spans borders and human differences. Using humor, vitality, good information, true spirit and his gifted hands.Boz ScaggsSinger and Songwriter
I will be joined by some talented musicians, singers and a poet, along with encouraging audience participation (great for kids). It will be held in the ‘oldest church’, a place with ancient adobe walls enhancing the music.
If you feel inspired, copy the flyer and post it in your favorite coffee shop.
Look forward to seeing you November 17th!
I will be playing a concert of songs and stories from my folk opera/musical, The Rights of Nature, at San Miguel Chapel, the oldest church, November 17th. The songs tell the story of a community’s struggle to protect their homeland from environmental destruction. The concert is 7-8 pm. Doors open at 6:30 pm. $20 at the door.
San Miguel Chapel is located at 401 Old Santa Fe Trail

una canción de Nelson Denman, ©2015
Hay un lugar en los Andes del sur, lejos de una ciudad
Donde queda un pueblo de salud y amistad
La gente trabaja con la tierra y el aire libre y fresco
Agua pura y espíritu de amor y felicidad.
Vilcabamba, quedando en el valle
Aldea verde, visión y comunidad.
Buen vivir, sumac kausay
Estamos todos en el mismo barco
Visiones de amor y paz
Respirando en las montañas.
Vilcabamba, se abre como una flor
Buen vivir, ancianos y sinceridad.
Caballos en la calle
Jardines en la valle
La vida es amor y trabajo
Con un arco iris en el cielo.
En el valle de longevidad
Paz y prosperidad. 3x…fin]
