On August 19, 2012,
Echo Valley will be 10 years old. There is no picture album and there
will never be words to describe the incredible journey this has been.
To each and every one who has given to this effort, thank you.
The weaving of time,
love, tears and laughter is the tapestry of this place. The vision of
many generations before and those yet to come is evident here as the
triumphant human spirit is given the chance to do what it does best:
live in love, gratitude, celebration, and peace...
This is a moment to
honor and cherish all that has been and to hold out the possibility of
so much more.
Echo Valley is calling...and you are always welcome.
3 & 4
For our 7th annual benefit concert, we welcome back some of our
favorite musicians for a very special event. This is our chance to give
back to the land that we now call home. There are high transmission
lines planned to run through the heart of the Driftless region, but we
are here to tell you that the spirit of the people to stop this
insanity is alive and well and we are going to celebrate that spirit
August 3 and 4 at Echo Valley (click here for
directions to Echo Valley Farm).
100% of the ticket proceeds will go to S.O.U.L.
of the Kickapoo who are working diligently to ensure the
lines will not go up in this region - or anywhere else. S.O.U.L., LEG
(Local Energy Generation) and Midwest EIO (Energy Independence
Organization) are working on local, alternative energies, so that high
transmission lines become a thing of the past.
Tickets are $10 for one
day and $15
for both days.
Bring chairs or blankets.
Please, no dogs, drugs, or alcohol.

with Joe & Vicki Price and Subvocal.
blues duo Joe & Vicki Price are
in the 9th annual Independent Music Awards (The IMAs). Their last
release, Rain or Shine,
took honors for the best blues CD of 2009. They have been performing
together for 30 years.
||"Madison's Subvocal plays
moody, layered music that should
appeal to fans of Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois. The group's performance
was one of the highlights of the 2006 Madison Area Music Awards show."
