“Brief Awakening, from Asheville, is a small tribe of amazing fairy creatures who can only effectively communicate through their art, song, dance, and movement. Mandolin, ethereal vocals, synth, piano, avant garde heart drums, and harmonious overtones – swirl, bubble and trail, wherever Brief Awakening wanders.”

about our (F.A.E.) Faerie and Earth Festival event this
upcoming weekend!

May 21 – 22, 2016

Are you ready? Have you shared this with your friends, family, Facebook friends, associates, clients, customers and neighbors? The rain is an ILLUSION and we can work with it, as long as we stay in the space of Love and do not embrace the Fear Consciousness as projected by those who melt in the rain and by the weather forecasters. Share this article. See you there soon, hopefully! I will be wearing my white top hat trimmed in blue and red suspenders, purple fingernails and wearing a fairy shirt. So glam it up and join the fun!

Be In Joy!
