Fred Keams & Nizhoni’ Sky

to play RBR soundstage

Showtime: 8 pm

Imagine if you will listening to the sounds of the world long before Europeans came to the New World....the drums and flutes of the Native Americans. Now as you listen closely you recognize the modern sounds of guitar and bass intertwined with those of the drums and flutes. The sound that fills your ears is unique and soothing as well as filling your soul with happiness. THAT is Nizhoni' Sky! Sometimes music from the ancient lands and sometimes songs from the modern world and sometimes songs just from our hearts and souls.

Fred Nez Keams, having played his flutes at all the traditional venues (Pow-Wows and Festivals), had the desire to move into a new and exciting world with his talents. He started an open jam at a restaurant in the town where he lived. Joined by his friends John Forgy and Dan Ward (who oftentimes joins us) he set out on this new adventure. Long time friends (and band mates in other projects) Greg Rhodus and Craig Hagan had been discussing a desire to find an acoustic outlet for their talents and hoping to find/start something different than the usual things. They went to the jam stared by Fred and what happened that first night was musical bliss. Kindred spirits of nature and music found each other and decided this was something to pursue. What you see and hear now is the culmination of that meeting.
