Floyd Red Crow Westerman Tribute

on February 2, 2009 No comments

We came together to honor and remember, Floyd Red Crow Westerman.

It was November 13, 2008, in San Francisco at the Palace of Fine Arts during the American Indian Film Festival.

The concert was all about Floyd, his music, friends, how he lived his life and how he inspirited others to live theirs.

Bonnie Raitt – Angel from Montgomery (with Keith Secola)

Filmed by Carlisle Antonio

The evening was magical, the Frybread sisters wore flowers in their hair, Javelinas Jammed, Jack Rambled, Bonnie Prayed, John drummed, Jennifer danced, Jeremy Drove, Charlie laughed, Katari cried, Max crooned, Dennis appeared, Michael Spears, Pete Sears, Melanie Stormm, Rosie Spoke, Floyd’s Carla, Quiet Shea, Loud Micki, Mike Smith, rock and rock, the boys in the band: Jimmy V, SevV’s, Chad the Man-dolin, Roberto.  Floyd’s handpicked misfits. In the distance, seals barked, and heels walked to parked cars near the Wharf with graffiti saying, “honor an artist by singing their songs.”  We did that night, 18 songs in a 7 song set on 11/13/08.

Congratulations to Blues Hall of Famer Bonnie Raitt who was honored at last night's GRAMMYs with the Lifetime Achievement Award.

“To be validated by my peers… it’s a very big celebration and I’m very grateful.” On being an inspiration and influence to other musicians, like Sheryl Crow who was inspired to play guitar after hearing Raitt play for the first time, she says “it’s hard for me to imagine because I still feel like I’m just starting out. It’s been 50 years, but you know people have been really kind. So many more women are playing lead guitar - Prince’s band, Beyonce’s band, all the late-night bands who have women musicians. It’s fantastic.”
