New Palisades Chautauqua Series

Aldersgate Lodge
925 Haverford Avenue
Pacific Palisades, CA 90272
"Chautauqua" is an American Indian word from the east coast. The Chautauqua movement started in the 19th century, with social gatherings dedicated to education, culture, inspiration and recreation. The Palisades is reviving this concept and setting up a series of evenings bringing in artists from diverse disciplines. They have invited myself and Roberto to perform acoustically. I might even have some African dancing as part of the show...this is to be confirmed.
