Join Tony Redhouse (Navajo) for a live Native American multimedia music concert in full regalia as he celebrates “Tony Redhouse Day” in Petaluma.  Mr. Redhouse will share inspirational music, drawing on the ancient forms of musical expression — the voice, the drum, and the flute–to create a sacred space for us to unite and to create harmony in your life.  He will share interactive segments of music, dance and drumming that will take you soaring freely to the heavens.

Tony is the recipient of five Native American Music Awards.  His latest work, Harmony of East & West, was created for his unique “Native American Spirit & Yoga” workshops and to support healing and meditation.  He has shared uplifting messages with the Dept. of Justice “Victims of Crime on Reservations”, Montana Tribal Communities, National Alliance for Grieving Children, SW College of Behavioral Health, Dr. Oz’ TV, “Keeping Up with the Kardashians”, The Real Housewives of NJ and is featured in Marilyn Schlitz and Deepak Chopra’s film documentary, “Death Makes Life Possible” and featured in the film documentary, “Is Your Story Making You Sick?” Produced and directed by Frances Causey.  He is often remembered for his motivational and compassionate delivery of insightful messages on a variety of topics including:  Life Transitions, health and wellness, maintaining balance in our “Circle of Life”, coping with trauma, grief, divorce, loss, addiction-recovery, and Native American Spirituality.
