Joining us from Battleground, Washington, Mysticism Black takes the stage at 6pm on Friday. Their newest album, "Return of the Bestial Flame", is set to release on the 28th of this month. These guys bring forth a force of authentic and powerful black metal, complete with some classic metal riffs and moments of atmospheric release. We love that they're bringing this kind of energy to the gathering and are looking forward to a black metal set fitting to raise the dark gods of the forest from their benighted slumber. Check out Mysticism Black for yourself by clicking on the link in our bio that will take you to the official Litha Casacadia website. There you'll find a list of performers where you'll be connected to Mysticism Black's band camp. Tickets for Litha Casacadia are on sale now & can be purchased on the aforementioned website.

Midtsommer er en herlig tid! 🙏🏻🌸 Ønsker deg en god uke videre! 💐
Midsummer blossoming - all ready for the magical celebration of the Summer Solstice. 💫🌼🌾
Scot Jenerik takes the stage at 9pm on Friday night. If you've never witnessed his live performances, you're certainly in for a one of a kind experience that we doubt you'll be expecting. This guy made a record out of cement. He's got a musical flame thrower. Scot is a composer whose projects include; AUME, F-Space, and Soundtrack for the Dead. With an obvious brilliant mind for both composition and presentation, his innovative percussive ambient sound and experimental instrument creations make for a truly unique and authentic industrial experience. You won't see anything like this again so don't miss it. Do you have a musical flame thrower? What are you even doing with your life? 🔥
Scot doesn't have an Instagram page but you can listen to him on band camp. The link in our bio leads to the official Litha Cascadia website where you can access it under the list of performers. Tickets for Litha Cascadia are on sale now and can be purchased on the website as well!

This photo is from a couple years back, and every year we are so thankful for our hard working bar crew! They put so much effort and time into providing delicious spirits for everyone far into the early morning hours.
This year there will be bars at both main stages and they have both gotten a revamp! They're going to have a wide selection of beers on tap from @JonesCreekBrewing
The two bars will also have an assortment of mixed drinks to choose from, and they will also be serving Absinthe (makes the heart grow fonder) this year. Also on site, but in their own booth and separate from the bar, @thirteen_moons_apothecary
will be vending a variety of their own unique, bottled concoctions.
While this is a byob friendly event, we at Red Hawk Avalon are also a small, DIY community who put on this gathering, and sales from the bars help us to cover costs like infrastructure, affording the bands and sound technicians and all the other expenses that go into hosting Litha Cascadia. All drinks are very reasonably priced, and supporting our bars is a great way to show some extra support for those who put on the gathering! (NOTE: Bars are cash only.) #lithacascadia #lithacascadia2019 #summersolsticegathering #summersolsticefestival #jonescreekbrewing #assemblybrewing #capturedbyporches #thirteenmoonsapothecary
From Seattle, Washington, we welcome @sataray7
who goes on at 2am on the Saturday schedule, the second night of the gathering. Whether you're with her in front of the stage, sitting by the bonfire, wandering the woods or anywhere in ear shot, this is going to be some perfectly timed dark elf ambiance that is going to make the woods at night come alive with a soundtrack ready to transport you to Mirkwood or possibly various underworlds. She's got plenty of material going all the way back to 2010 on her band camp, which you can access under our list of performers on the official Litha Cascadia website. (Link in bio) Tickets for the gathering are on sale now and also available at the website.

Peace prayer day .
“You are very generous, Oh God . There are many , many people in many ,many ways , but we thank you for guiding us through your Grace and through Your protective hands . We are not the special ones but we are the humble ones . We seek Thy light and Thy guidance . Through Thy grace and through the power of prayer , may man live in peace and tranquility.
As You have guided us now , guide us forever . May Thy hand protect us now and forever and may we dwell in Thy grace . Sat Nam “

We are lucky to have @arkheronthodol
join us this year as part of our line up. Their 2017 release, 'Thaw' brought me to tears. Simply a flawlessly constructed album, with builds, peaks, meanders and releases woven together as naturally as the geology of this earth builds a river or a mountain range. Arkheron Thodol plays at 1am on Friday and you're going to want to be there. A link in our bio leads to the official Litha Cascadia website, where you can buy tickets for the gathering and also listen to Arkheron Thodol's band camp under our list of performers.

So many tiny details for a tiny print 🧐
This is probably my favorite new piece I've done in recent months. I love the cows and farm scene.
I've been prepping for the Summer Solstice Festival this Saturday in Blacksburg this Saturday and all my posts have been ironically lacking in art photos 🤦♀️
I hope you're having a great morning and enjoy this new print. I will be listing this and a few more on etsy next week after the show so be on the lookout if you're interested!
And if you're in the New River Valley this mini-print and the original will be at the festival with me, so come visit! 😊
The solstice is upon us and to celebrate, we’ll be at the Blackstone River Theatre’s Summer Solstice Festival at Diamond Hill Park in Cumberland R.I. THIS SATURDAY the 15th. Look for our tent; we’ll have fiddles, bows, ukes, strings and accessories (tuners, shoulder rests, stands, etc), as well as 10% discounts for festival goers, which can be used at a later date as well as on Saturday. Happy Summer; Happy Playing!

Les comparto una foto de lo que he estado haciendo en Española, USA. Casi nunca pinto, pero esta vez he estado a cargo de hacer muchas señales para el festival de Kundalini Yoga, donde estamos esperando la llegada de más de 2.500 personas del mundo entero. Este cartel es bien especial porque se construyeron nuevas duchas para las personas trans género, con el fin de que todos tengamos un espacio donde nos podamos sentir cómodos y respetados en la diversidad de lo que somos. Algo tan simple, pero inmensamemte significativo, verdad? Saludos a todos ♥️

"Songs woven from the abyss, a finger upon the pulse of a slowing heart." *
Serpentent will be gracing our stage again this year for Litha. Coming to us from Seattle, Washington, Serpentent is the former solo project of Anne K. O'Neill, now also featuring percussion by Joey D'Auria. Everything about this project speaks of an intense depth of character and emotion. It certainly has the potential to take you off guard, and the lyrics confirm that there's a lot of profound and honest channeling of loss, strength, acceptance and the human heart's capacity to hold both so much love and so much weight. This is an absolutely beautiful dark folk project and we welcome Serpentent back with open arms. You can listen for yourself via the band camp link that can be found within the official Litha Casacadia website. (Link in our bio!) Tickets for Litha Cascadia are on sale now, also to be found on our easy to navigate website. The time draws nigh!

From Los Angeles, CA, we welcome @nighttongue
to Red Hawk Avalon! I thoroughly enjoyed just listening through their entire discography on band camp, with the track, 'Nautical Heart' sticking out as a personal favorite. I think they're going to be very well received this summer solstice. In their own words...
"Night Tongue is a transgressive darkwave duo based in LA. Originally from Australia, the duo create a dark mythic world of sex, death, horror + ecstasy constructed from modal vocal virtuosity, bright shimmering guitars, filthy bass, drum machine and synth. Carisa Bianca Mellado and Andrew Dalziell combine their energies to create a music of violence, prayer + transcendence."
Sounds good to us. Hit up the link in our bio that leads to the official Litha Cascadia website. There you can access Night Tongue's band camp and you can purchase tickets for the gathering!

Fauna joins us from Olympia, Washington. Their 2012 album, titled, 'Avifauna' is an exquisitely balanced offering of both the folk and the black metal musical intonations that the Cascade mountains seem to bring out of the benighted and receptive creatures who call these lands home. This album ascends highs and lows like the mountains themselves, with calming, perfectly placed interludes and a finishing track that flawlessly brings the album full circle. Two more albums are available for listening on their band camp,'The Hunt' and ' Rain'. Hit up the link to their band camp on the official Litha Cascadia website. If you're not already familiar with Fauna, you're going to want to be. Tickets for Litha Cascadia are on sale now, to purchase them follow the link in our bio.

There is going to be some elegant and luxurious classical piano sounds and ethereal soundscapes echoing through the cedar forest come the summer solstice. We'd like to introduce you to @nicksuperchi
who will be joining us from Battleground, Washington. I spent the afternoon listening to his album, 'Otherworldly', an aptly named offering full of gorgeous piano tracks from start to finish. I particularly fell in love with track 4, 'Snowfire'. If you give Nick a listen you will see that he is obviously a very talented composer and we love that he will be gathering with us to add an element of neoclassical, ambient sound to this years' diverse and talented line up. Nick has two other albums up to listen to on his band camp, which you can find a link to in our bio which will lead you to the official Litha Casacadia website, where you can also purchase tickets for the gathering!

Thank you to everyone who came out to help contribute to this weekend's work party at Red Hawk Avalon! We had an extremely productive few days of hard work put in by members of our community. Swipe left to see more photos of our spruced up forest paths, the freshly mowed field, the new & improved fire pit and the new steps leading down to the creek! 🖤💚 Tickets for Litha Casacadia are available now via the official website link in our bio. 🌿🍃 #lithacascadia #lithacascadia2019 #summersolsticegathering #summersolsticefestival #workparty
We're really looking forward to experiencing Huldrekull live. Their 2017 release, "What Else Will Fade?" is a powerful journey through the dark recesses of the state of our world and our human mortality, with "La Dance Macabre" providing a slow building and dynamic first track that starts you on a path of what proves to be a paramount black metal album. Their discography has more to offer, a link in our bio will take you to the official Litha Cascadia website where you can access Hunderkall's band camp and purchase tickets for the gathering.
