Memphis, TN: Sooj Performs at the Flint Witch Festival @ Meeman Shelby State Park
May 18 – May 21 all-day
Memphis, TN: Sooj Performs at the Flint Witch Festival @ Meeman Shelby State Park | Millington | Tennessee | United States

YAY! We’re throwing a festival! After nearly two decades of involvement in the pagan community, the Flint Witches are throwing their first festival! Come join us as we get our “Summer Camp” on Pagan style!

For those who are not familiar, the Flint Witches started out as a group of pagans living on Flint Street in Jonesboro, AR. They got involved in the pagan community in Jonesboro, and eventually moved to Memphis. For years they served as host for both Summerland Grove and Southern Delta events in Memphis, as well as many rites of passage. The Flint Witch way is very much a matter of service to the community, with lots of crafting and a nice heaping spoonful of mischief.

 As one would expect, this will not be your average festival. This is PAGAN SUMMER CAMP. Get set to get divided into Houses, compete in all kinds of games, sing around the campfire and welcome the warmer days of May!

Tennessee’s most royal Fae family Tuatha Dea and S. J.

Doors will open at 6:45pm.  Please do not arrive or seek entry before that time.

Music will begin at 7pm.  There will be a brief intermission between bands.

This wonderful event marks one year that The Green Album has been making its mark and saving Rain Forest land. Tuatha Dea and S. J. Tucker are getting together to celebrate that one year anniversary. With the combined efforts of fourteen recording artists including Tuatha Dea and Sooj, together with all of our amazing fans and supporters, we have succesfully saved over 8,000 acres of land! We think we should celebrate it! SO.. ONE NIGHT ONLY!!! What better way to shake off your Monday blues?

Southern IL: Sooj at PSG 2017 @ Tall Tree Lake
Jun 18 – Jun 25 all-day
Southern IL: Sooj at PSG 2017 @ Tall Tree Lake | Vienna | Illinois | United States

PSG is an intense and beautiful week long festival, all about exploring your spiritual connection to others and to the planet.  Not only that, but it draws some REALLY GREAT PERFORMERS!  Sooj is thrilled to be back, and to share the spotlight with Spiral Rhythm, Nathaniel Johnstone & Tempest, Sentinel Grove, Damh the Bard, and Arthur Hinds!

Presenters for this year include Sooj’s buddies Tempest, River Higganbotham, the effervescent Selena Fox, and more!

“Each year, the PSG community comes together, creates, and lives in a 21st century Pagan village which is our home for the duration of the weeklong celebration of Summer Solstice. The sacred fire that we light during our Opening Ritual and keep burning throughout symbolizes the solstice sun and spirit of the PSG community.”

Connect with Community!  Don’t wait until the gate opens – connect with the PSG community online via Twitter and on our Facebook Group

Questions or Concerns? Email at psg@circlesanctuary.org and our office staff will get right back to you.

Sooj will be performing all over the place during the week of PSG; she’ll have a morning performance, a noon show, and an evening concert, plus participation in the beautiful new tradition known as BARDAPALOOZA, a giant jam session begun in the Year of the Flood, when all the PSG performers get together and rock out!  

She’ll also be teaching two workshops, times TBA!  Here they are:

Internal Alchemy
In our day-to-day, we often face negativity aimed at our creative pursuits; sometimes it even comes from within. Sooj shares her own practical magic for facilitating the fantastical in the face of such nonsense: how she slays deadlines, cultural conditioning & self-doubt with respect to writing & singing songs for a living. Expect a few lively live numbers & many optional techniques which can be applied not just to writing music or stories, but also to spellwork, ritual craft & all the arts.
 
Balladcraft: Something Old, Something New
Everyone loves a good  story.  We’ve all felt the spell that a story or song can cast upon us as it is shared.  Those of us who don’t fancy being stolen away by the faeries before we’re good & ready have tons of respect for songs & stories handed down through time. Join Sooj & friends as we investigate some good old LONG ballads reborn, as well as some good NEW ballads you may not have heard before! As time allows we’ll also share the stories behind those ballads & give a few presentation tips for aspiring bards & balladeers!

Jul 13 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Lawton, OK: Goddess Revolution Tour Kickoff Concert with Sooj & Leslie Hudson @ UU Lawton | Lawton | Oklahoma | United States

GET TICKETS!

Put a Pixie from the South and a Goddess from North of the Border together in concert and what do you get?  Let’s find out!  Sooj’s Pixie Magic and Leslie’s Goddess Goodness fuse for the first show ever tonight, in a kickoff concert for Leslie’s #GoddessRevolutionTour!  Don’t miss it!  

 

Singer-songwriters S. J. Tucker and Leslie Hudson are sharing the spotlight for the first time ever this summer as part of Leslie’s #GoddessRevolution tour!  Lusciously combined shows with these two powerful performers are scheduled in Oklahoma, New Mexico, Colorado, Utah, Montana, Washington state, and Oregon.  

Leslie Hudson is a powerhouse performer and prolific songwriter bringing rock, jazz, metal, blues, folk, filk and funk to conventions and venues across Canada and the USA.  The body of her work illustrates the mosaic of the feminine spirit across culture, history and myth, digging into the dirt, traversing the shadows, and bringing the truth to light.  There’s a Goddess Revolution going on and this rebel redhead is voicing the stories of characters who continue to inspire it, from archetypes to Inhumans, without apology.  Hudson’s influences, woven into her voice as well as her fingers on the keys, glide from Tori Amos to Loreena McKennitt, Metallica to Simon & Garfunkel.  Armed with a synesthetic palette, she invites her listeners to see through the eyes of heroines, villains, lovers and liars alike, as she breathes new life into stories less often told.

In 2017 Leslie embarks on a six-month North American tour with stops in more than 20 states and 3 provinces.  On tour as at home her performances range from solo shows to singer-songwriter showcases to 10-piece band showstoppers.  Her recent albums are rooted in the diversity of sci fi, pop culture, folklore, myth, and the lessons life brings.  Find out more at http://lesliehudson.com

“Hudson seeks to get under the skin of [her] characters, probe their fictitious souls and, through the raw power of her music, to make them flesh-and-blood, to honor them with real human angst. And the results are nothing short of spectacular.” –Daniel Jun Kim, Pop Mythology

S. J. Tucker, self-motivated singer-songwriter, poet, author and actress, came flying out of the Memphis music scene in 2004, guitar in hand and voice at the ready, and her feet have hardly hit the ground since. Come Monsters, Misfits, and Mythpunks!  Come Witches, Pirates, and Literati!  Come Dreamers fair and Schemers foul!  S. J. Tucker’s got a song for you.  Slinging every sort of tune from a Murder Ballad about robots and thieves to a Shapeshifter’s Riverboat Shanty, this steamy siren slings ’em all from her drumming hands, her dancing guitar, and her soaring voice.  

On the road across the continent full time for a fourteenth year, S. J., called “Sooj” by fans and friends, deftly binds together the varied elements of jazz, folk, and fairytales in her original tunes. No two of her concerts are the same, but listeners and critics compare her guitar work to that of Emily Saliers, her vocal delivery to KT Tunstall and Joni Mitchell. The body of her recorded work spans more than thirteen years and features frequent guest performances by other hardworking indies. S. J. often travels solo, but also shares concerts with her 3-piece band Tricky Pixie, Toronto’s Heather Dale Band, Seattle’s Dogwood & Johnstone, and now the lovely Leslie Hudson!  

“Tucker is not only fantastic; she’s like a character out of a fantasy novel. She weaves myth and magic into her lyrics as easily as a strain of cello, a lick of something electric, the chuffing of a train engine…Tucker has a knack – no, a genius – for weaving old ways with new.” -C. S. E. Cooney, Blackgate.com
