Leon Joseph Littlebird embodies the spirit of Colorado. With roots in both pioneer and native cultures he understands the magic of the mountains and the Southwest. His great-grandfather was one of the original settlers in Blackhawk, Colorado, and his great-uncle was a classical music composer and performer in Silver Plume and Georgetown.
This connection to the rich history of Colorado comes through in Leon’s music. A prolific songwriter and performer, his unique style tells tales of Colorado and the people of the west.
Leon’s ancestors also include the indigenous Navajo people of northern New Mexico. Leon understands and respects the ancient tradition of Native American Flute music. Often the Native American Flute was used as a rite of passage, for ceremony and for healing. The music has a long tradition of being sacred, romantic, stimulating, and peaceful. Come learn about the history of indigenous music in Colorado.
This event is free and open to the public.
