November 2007

1. MIZERO ("HOPE") CONCERTS IN NOVEMBER

2. JACKIE ON FILM SOUNDTRACK CD

3. MARIJO MOORE - JACKIE'S PICK OF THE SEASON!

4. SCHEDULE - THE SALON IN DECEMBER

1. MIZERO CHILDREN of RWANDA (http://mizerochildren.org)
Jackie has organized two performances in Pennsylvania for the Mizero Children of Rwanda. Incorporating traditional song, dance, costumes and drumming, the children and Jean Paul Samputu will inspire you with their tremendous hearts and talent, all for the purpose of creating a better life for the many many orphans in Rwanda. These are fundraising concerts, free, but donations are taken at the performances.

  • Thursday 15 November, 7:00pm, Packer Memorial Chapel, Lehigh University, Bethlehem PA
  • Friday 16 November, 8:00pm, Pebble Hill Interfaith Church, 320 Edison-Furlong Rd., Doylestown, Pa., (215) 348-3428
    (doors open at 7:30 for refreshments and coffee)

We look forward to making the children's stay here a wonderful, memorable experience. Many thanks to all who are providing host housing for the children, to Justin Szeliga for production direction at Pebble Hill, and to Silagh White and Bill Hunter for inviting the children into the International Week celebrations at Lehigh.

SIGNAL SOUND STUDIO (http://signalsound.com)

Jackie, Jean Paul Samputu and the Mizero Troupe will be going into the beautiful wooded studios of Signal Sound, Quakertown, to record the All Nations Peace Chant, debuted in its entirety at the All Nations Peace Concert last August at Musikfest. A download will be available at JackieTice.com in the near future. This is Jackie's favorite studio to work in and she has recorded three albums there, including Second Skin with Bill Miller. Many thanks to Pete Davis, owner, for his artistic support, high quality and honest approach to business.

2. A DANCE FOR BETHANY

Jackie has been invited to include her song, Into The Fire, on the upcoming soundtrack CD for the feature film, A Dance for Bethany. This film depicts the struggles and victories of a girl sold into the sex trafficking black market trade, and reflects the transformation of those helping pull her from its dark lifestyle.

Produced and written by Marion D. and Yvonne Williams respectively, the film has already won several awards including the Grand Jury Award forBest Feature Film at the Faith and Film Motion Picture Festival. This is a film aimed at educating and creating awareness of this "under the radar" issue in the US and the creators of A Dance for Bethany are holding interactive workshops and lectures in cities where the movie is screened.

Check out the following websites:

Thanks to Marion and Yvonne Williams for the opportunity to be part of such important work.

3. MARIJO MOORE (http://marijomoore.com)

Jackie met MariJo Moore through a Native American writers website. The spelling of "MariJo" is, of course, unique and reminiscent of Jackie's song, "The Marijo Tonight." Jackie was looking for an editor for some short stories she had written. Having no idea who she was talking to, it was soon revealed that MariJo Moore is one of the most respected Native American authors and editors of our time. A Cherokee from North Carolina, MariJo has written award-winning poetry, prose fiction and novels, and has edited, compiled and published two important Native American writers' projects: Genocide of the Mind: New Writings by Native Americans (editor, Nations Books/Thunders Mouth Press) and Eating Fire, Tasting Blood: Breaking the Great Silence of the American Indian Holocaust (editor, Thunder’s Mouth Press).

In addition to being the founder of Renegade Planets Publishing, some of MariJo's honors include "Wordcrafter of the Year" (2003-2004) by the Wordcraft Circle of Native Writers and Storytellers, North Carolina's "Distinguished Woman of the Year in the Arts" award (1998), and one of the top five "American Indian Writers of the New Century" from Native Peoples Magazine (June/July 2000 issue). Also, Wordcraft Circle of Native Writers and Storytellers chose her as creative prose fiction "Writer of the Year" in 2002 for her book Red Woman With Backward Eyes and Other Stories. There are many authors in the Native American category - Marijo Moore is simply ONE OF THE BEST counted there and, in our opinion, one of the best contemporary authors - period!

Please check her website - http://marijomoore.com - and consider purchasing her books for holiday gifting. Her novel, "The Diamond Doorknob," should not be missed!! She's definitely JackieTice.com's "Pick for the Season!"

2. GREAT RIVER FESTIVAL AFTER THE FLOODS

The Great River Folk Fest was a wonderful experience and Jackie spent some good time with Bill Miller and Second Skin mix and mastering engineer, Mike Von Muchow, including joining them onstage for a version of Knocking on Heaven’s Door at the sold-out concert at the University of Wisconsin. Unfortunately, cameras were hard to come by, but we do have a photo of Bill and Jackie backstage after the show! Thanks to Doug McVey and all the volunteers for a wonderful festival. It was a great gift of beautiful weather after the torrential rainfall the previous week. Also, special thanks to Peter Mulvey (petermulvey.com) for chauffeuring Jackie back and forth from the hotel to the festival, in addition to playing some hot guitar on her Flute piece, CROW TALK! Go to Peter’s website and visit him as he bicycles across Wisconsin on a ten-day performance tour this month! Thanks also to Tom Walter (guitarist for Prairie Smoke) for performing emergency surgery on Jackie’s guitar case handle, which fell off right before her last performance of the festival! Time to get a new case!

5. RADIO AROUND—
Winnepeg:
Jackie had the pleasure of a trip to Manitoba last month, which included a visit to NCI radio (Native Communications Inc.) in Winnipeg.

6. SAMPUTU COLLABORATION—
After working together at the All Nations Peace Concert and realizing the commonality of their visions, Jackie and Rwandan musician, Jean Paul Samputu, have decided to do some collaboration of concerts and recordings in the near future. Samputu founded the Mizero Foundation and, in the Fall, is bringing twelve Rwandan children to perform traditional songs and dance around the country to help raise money for an arts and music academy in Rwanda, affecting more healing through music for the children there.

1. MUSIKFEST SAT. 11 August 2007, 12:00-2:00pm, Volksplatz
All Nations Peace was originally inspired by Jackie’s song, Trail of Tears. Written over the course of several years between the beginning of the US/NATO action in Kosovo in 1999 and the Iraq war, Jackie recognized that, in her own generation alone, the incidences of genocide and aggression fueled by injustice and bigotry had become a human spiritual epidemic. Trail of Tears is an honoring song to those who have lost their lives due to intolerance of religion, politics or ethnicity. All Nations Peace Concerts, rooted in the Native American concept of Mitakuye Oyasin (We are all related), brings together indigenous people from the Four Directions of the Earth to present a World Tribal Peace Council, using music as a vehicle to express our relatedness and promote the global initiative to Recognize our Relatives.

The All Nations Peace Concert at Musikfest 2007 will feature:

SOUTH - White
Born of mixed European and native American roots, Lehigh Valley resident, Jackie Tice, is an multi-award-winning songwriter and advocate for Peace through music.

7. PERSONAL NOTE FROM JACKIE
Life fills us with the blessings of this Earth Walk and we spend most of our lives trying to predict, control and make sense of what it all means. Gratefully, we pass to other stages where we learn that there is no controlling or predicting anything and we ultimately realize that not everything actually makes sense!! We learn to accept things and trust the process of this Life.

My dear friend and spirit sister, Sandi MorningSky, has gone to the Spirit world. I’ve mentioned her several times in this newsletter and the Morning Sky Drum Song, which I “heard” while driving to her place last year, was a gift that I could give her. This was something completely unexpected in her life. She cried at the blessing as I sang this to her, in front of the other residents in the Elderly Home where she spent some of her last days. We traveled later to the Indian Summer Music Festival Awards. I pushed her wheelchair, when she wasn’t insisting on using the motor! She was fiercely independent and strong and took solace and pride in her Apache/Dakota ancestors.

At the Festival, she bought us Friendship bracelets to wear and we tied those on one another’s wrists with a spiritual vow of sisterhood. After almost a year of wear, strands flying here and there, visibly not matching my outfits, but no chance of removing it – she’s my sister! – the bracelet finally broke. The next morning I received a call that she had passed on.

Anytime you can do something for someone that is good, that is kind and gives them their worth, don’t hesitate! It is a good thing to do. Follow those little whispers in your ear that tell you what needs to be done to make the world a better place. Trust the process and trust yourself to do good things and be the worth that you are. Thank you for being a part of my walk and I send you….

All peace and blessings…….

This Phoenixville PA venue has made a name for itself in the last few years with several “BEST OF PHILLY” awards for listening venue.

2. ITHACA—HUMAN RIGHTS SYMPOSIUM—MAY 23
If you are in NY State and want to see Jackie and her Ensemble up close, plan to attend the very personal concert she is putting on for South Seneca Middle School in Ovid NY, just north of Ithaca. She will then spend a day “in the classrooms” teaching about Art for the Sake of Peace, culminating with the SSMS chorus singing her song, Trail of Tears, which premiered for vocal chorus at the 2006 United Nations International Day of Peace.

Tickets are $5 and can be reserved by calling Gertrude Shaffer or Breana Copp at 607-869-9636 x1159

3. NORTH DAKOTA
Jackie is once again headed for ND in June to visit Ft. Berthold Reservation, Thunder Butte and the forever Badlands. A gig in Madison WI is waiting for confirmation and an email will be sent out as soon as possible to confirm this mid-June date for those awaiting her return to the Midwest.

4. ALL NATIONS PEACE CONCERT—AUG 11
Mark your calendars to attend the All Nations Peace Concert on 11 August 2007 at the Bethlehem Musikfest. The complete line-up will become available next month, but at this time Jackie Tice’s All Nations Peace Band, Jean Paul Samputu from Rwanda, Native American dancers and a Native drum group will all appear to stand in unity, presenting indigenous music as a World Tribal Peace Council. More of the vision of All Nations Peace can be found at allnationspeace.com

5. SCHEDULE

1. MY SPACE - YOU TUBE—
Visit Jackie's new page at http://myspace.com/jackietice. We've posted two video clips: One from a gig recorded in 2005 at the Raubsille Inn. Performing with Jackie are Kevin Soffera, Billy Hall and Nick Franclik. The other is at the NE Middle School--you can only hear Kevin on percussion in this clip.

The site is just beginning to take form, so please sign in as her "Friend," post messages, review the videos and be inclined to check back. As an interactive forum, the MySpace site will be a way to more personally stay connected.

We love YouTube! Thanks to Jesse Green (http://jessegreen.com), composer and jazz pianist, for showing us how to watch footage of Joni Mitchell, Oscar Peterson and Bill Miller all within a few minutes of each other! In the very near future, you will be able to watch concert footage of Jackie there as well!

2. PHOTOS
Check out the Gallery page at JackieTice.com. New pictures of the UN, Bill Miller, and North Dakota. Click here.

3. BRING ON THE SPRING WITH GRATITUDE
Although it took all winter to become winter, the month of February took us all by surprise. Ice and seemingly endless cold days remind me of childhood winters. There's a lot of movement getting ready to erupt from this time of gathering heart for the coming Spring. We are in the "Season For Nonviolence" between the memorial passing dates of Mahatma Gandhi (Jan 30) and Martin Luther King Jr (April 4). As the President of the US readies for more war, the People are calling for more Peace. The People are calling for more Peace. The People are calling for more Peace. The People are calling for more Peace.

------------Gratitude in this New Year----------------

Gratitude to Chante Ishta at WNMF Radio in Florida for her interview with Jackie in January. We're really happy to have such incredible radio friends all over the country. Keep it strong! Great thanks to Billy Hall for keeping the JackieTice.com website looking so great month after month! To all the People on the mailing list, thank you for your continue support. To Mike Wolke at Yulunga Arts, much gratitude for keeping the bookings coming! To the concert venues - they're all listed in the *newsletter archives* at JackieTice.com - you keep the touring musicians alive and should consider it a beautiful service //to bring live music// to the world--thank you!; To Monica Willard and Deborah Moldow, partners in Peace, great thanks and blessings. To the Wea Tribe of Indiana, to Sandy MorningSky, the People at Spirit Lake and Ft. Berthold, masa gidats, mada nux baaga asa and see you soon!

4. PEACE CONCERT AND FLAG CEREMONY
To commemorate the Season for Nonviolence, to welcome the new Spring, to recommit to Peace and to pray for the Earth, Jackie and Monica Willard are hosting a Peace Concert and World Peace Flag Ceremony in Bethlehem PA on WEDNESDAY, MARCH 21, 7-8:30 PM.

1. GRATITUDE—
Much gratitude and giving is expressed during this time of the year. Along with the gratitude is a sense of our relationship and commonality with all people. Compassion and forgiveness can really feed that sense of connectedness. This world, in this new year, needs more love and forgiveness, more respect, more compassion, more gratitude. Thank you for everything you do to create peaceful relations and more love in the world.

2. PASSING OF A SOLDIER
It is with sadness and regret that we pass on the news of Nathan Goodiron's passing in Afghanistan. Nathan - the first son of Paul and Harriet Goodiron - kept fire for our ceremonies in North Dakota. Please keep his family in your hearts and prayers. Here is an article about him: Bismark Tribune Article

3. RALEIGH NEW YEAR
Jackie and Billy Hall brought in the New Year at the Raleigh, NC First Night celebration. The City of Oaks, they watched the Acorn drop at 7pm and midnight, as is the tradition there. The 7:00pm "drop" is for the children. It's a great family event!  For those curious to see the Acorn, go to www.firstnightraleigh.com. Thanks to the organizers of First Night Raleigh for inviting Jackie to play and a big WELCOME to the new folks on the mailing list from there!

4. LIVE ON THE RADIO INTERVIEW
Sunday night, Jan. 21, 2007, 10:30pm EST Jackie will have a call-in telephone interview on TWO WORLDS WMNF 88.5 FM, Tampa FL. Those out of range can listen at www.wmnf.org. The interview will be conducted by Chante Ishta (chanteishta.com), who is the producer and host of this Native music show - one of the only east of the Mississippi. Chante Ishta found Jackie at the Indian Summer Music Awards and immediately invited her to be on. Please check out the interview on January 21 at 10:30pm EST.

5. UPCOMING SHOWS
