Midsummer Music Festival 2018 – Wednesday, July 18 starting at 8:30am Pacific Time

This is MIDSUMMER at its maddest! MUSIC at its finest! FESTIVAL as it’s meant to be.

This Midsummer Music Festival is all over the map. Not one space in your heart, mind and spirit will remain untouched – and if you can dance…I recommend you turn it up and bounce your body around your RL room. Inspiration Island starts it off at 8:30 AM SLT and passes the party on to ROMANY sim at 4 PM SLT!
And they will keep the party, puzzles, and fun going through Saturday!

Twirl to the classical, sway and sing along with the folk, get down with the rock and blues! We’re not just showing off our two regions, Inspiration Island and Romany, but we are showing off what SL music is and can be.


LOCATION: Keko’s Music Cafe http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Inspiration%20Island/241/196/30
Cosmic Tara performs at Inspiration Island on Saturday evenings at 5:15pm SLT. She performs on piano and violin, and sings both popular tunes and her original music. She performs at the Music Cafe, located next to Brodmann’s Brain and the Towers of Invention.

9:00 AM – 9:30 AM SLT ARI (Arisia Vita)
LOCATION: WBH Gazebo http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Inspiration%20Island/79/136/22
Originally, Ari used the piano as protective cover in SL – to prevent being asked to dance. But he began to enjoy the feeling of “playing” the piano the way he’d always dreamed of doing. He worked hard to find the selections and performance styles closest to what he would play, if he could. He found that the music he “plays” delights and even has a healing effect on listeners. He performs on Inspiration Island at the Gazebo Mondays at 10 am.

Today, some of his selections are the original music of another Whole Brain Health member. Marly Milena, Founder of Octagon: Creative Exploration, has been a composer of songs, piano music and choral music for many years. She calls herself a creativist since she moves from one medium to another. Today you will be hearing a collection of her latest piano pieces animated by Ari and played in RL by Molly Lozeau , music director at her church.

9:30 AM – 10 AM SLT – KT – DJ and slides
LOCATION:  WBH Bayside Walk  http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Inspiration%20Island/47/182/22
KT came to the shores of Whole Brain Health to share his sand sculpture with us. We thought it should be an ongoing display and sharing, and he’s been here ever since. He’s also an SL DJ – and combines both these callings for us today. Relax, listen to the water lap the shore and let our sandman weave his magic

LOCATION:  WBH Fairgrounds  http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Inspiration%20Island/128/127/22
Winner of all kinds of SL awards as a musician, and winner of many hearts for her vivacious and generous spirit, she has been called the “Sim Killer” because so many want to hear her guitar, her wailing blues, her inspired rock and soulful renderings of acoustic hits – all of which she makes her own. Our sims are sturdier these days, but she’s still a force to be reckoned with and a wonderful introduction to the awesome power of live music in SL.

LOCATION:  Stranger’s Hobo Camp  http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Inspiration%20Island/76/193/701
This a man who knows the history of music and shares with us his favorites. He sings and plays folk songs, traditional tunes and early music on guitar, autoharp, mountain dulcimer, recorders, mandolin, and penny whistle. As “The One-Man Renaissance Band”, he creates layered, multi-track recordings of medieval and renaissance music: His love for the roots of folk music is viral – that is, it’s catching. Don’t say you weren’t warned.

LOCATION:  Multiple Intelligences Experience  http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Inspiration%20Island/34/36/22
Mic is a multi-talented artist. His voice is versatile and expressive. He plays amazing guitar and wonderful keyboards. He sings and plays from the heart. He is well known for his originals and cover songs – old and new . He uses self- created sequenced backing tracks with harmonies for both originals and cover tunes, but also just as many acoustic songs. He is truly.. .Mr Multi.

LOCATION:  Keko’s Music Cafe  http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Inspiration%20Island/241/196/30
Most Wednesdays you will find Keko on Inspiration Island between 5:30 – 6:30 pm SLT playing his Native American Flutes. Typically his collection of flutes include ones he made, gifts from other generous SL residents or even one he purchased. Keko will frequently sprinkle the hour with a bit of didgeridoo, wind chimes, and drums. The mellow sounds of the flutes can be your guide into a relaxed state.

2 PM SLT – 3 PM SLT – SUNNY SZA (szavanna anatra)
LOCATION:  Sunvibes  http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Inspiration%20Island/219/102/27
When not on hiatus, Sunny has been a fixture here, hosting the World Music Jive on Thursdays at 10 am.
Originally from Hungary and now living in South Africa, the music she plays is a blend of many different cultures. Her home on Inspiration Island, Sunvibes, is filled with free fun, education, and useful gifts.
We are so pleased to have her with us again today.

LOCATION:  Curei’s Floating Gallery  http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Inspiration%20Island/201/117/1004
