Renowned musician and luthier William Eaton has conjured his music and innovative stringed instruments from the Arizona desert now for over four decades. Beyond boundary and stillness, William’s music is rooted within an indigenous past, yet expressive of a contemporary, changing, sonic landscape. Join William & Friends and his unique stringed instruments, for an enchanted evening of music inspired by the desert elements and wildlife. 

For this special Garden concert William will debut his new group Earth Speak. Earth Speak includes flutist-vocalist Claudia Tulip, percussionist-vocalist Susannah Martin, and harp-bass guitar Bart Applewhite. The evening concert will feature new music devoted to the human and more-than-human world and our relationship to the natural environment and the miracle of Earth’s planetary biosphere. Earth Speak is connected to the rich oral tradition of our indigenous and contemporary ancestors and our mutual engagement in communicating with the plant, animal and elemental worlds.
