A concert to present The Seven Fires Prophecy: Suite for Humanity. This original composition retells the ancient Anishinaabe Legend of The Seven Fires Prophecy in song. Long ago, the Anishinaabe were visited by prophets who gave 7 predictions of what the future of this planet would bring. Each prophecy was called a fire and each fire referred to a specific period in time.

“Many Indigenous nations are familiar with The Seven Fires Prophecy but I feel it is important to share it with non Indigenous people as well. I chose to share it through the Folk/Americana genre to reach a wider group on non Indigenous people. The prophecies warn us that if don’t we want to see humanity destroyed, we must learn to live together in peace and harmony with each other and our Earth.” – Kim Moberg

Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter Leslie Mendelson is supporting her most recent studio album ‘If You Can’t Say Anything Nice…,’ as well as a solo acoustic EP ‘In The Meantime,’ that was recorded during the 2020 lockdown. Described by Relix Magazine as an artist with “a loyal, cross-generational audience that hugs the hippie, hipster, coffee shop and society crowds,” Leslie’s timeless musicality and evocative songwriting indeed cuts a wide swath. If Leslie Mendelson’s only collaboration with a legendary musician was Jackson Browne, it would be a worthy point to celebrate. What’s truly telling is that Leslie has also drawn the attention of The Grateful Dead’s Bob Weir who recorded a duet with her on Roy Orbison’s standard, “Blue Bayou,” while no less than classic rock royalty The Who invited her to open two shows at Madison Square Garden.
