Eco-Justice Group The Greenheart to Perform in Ossining
8 to 10 p.m. on November 24, at Good Choice Kitchen, in Ossining
Several members of the eco-justice folk group The Greenheart will perform from 8 to 10 p.m. on November 24, at Good Choice Kitchen, in Ossining. James Dean Conklin, Fred Gillen Jr., Julie Corbalis and Laura Bowman will share stories, songs and visuals and engage the audience as they celebrate the group’s next big endeavor, a 30-day roving tour they’ve dubbed Clearwater-on-Nepal.
“The Greenheart is focused on sharing creative solutions to climate challenges,” says Conklin, a guitarist and vocalist for the group. “Our team includes musicians, photographers, journalists and illustrators—all passionate environmentalists. We most recently have traveled to Nepal, where we continue working with school groups and eco-entrepreneurs, exploring recycling, solar cooking, organic gardening and water health.”
During Clearwater-on-Nepal, The Greenheart—which uses solar-powered equipment—will interact with local teams at major river intersections across Nepal, creating music, art and live theater. For the celebratory event in Ossining, Good Choice Kitchen will be transformed into a Nepali-infused art space, with illustrations, photographs, video projection and live music from the group’s travels there.
“All of our work is informed by this mantra: create, communicate, celebrate. Come see, hear and taste what we mean,” Conklin says.
Cost: $6. Location: 147 Main St., Ossining, NY. For more information about the group, visit TheGreenheart.Solutions. For more information about Good Choice Kitchen and its vegan, organic seasonal menu, call 914.930.1591 or visit GoodChoiceKitchen.com.
