Joanne Shenandoah
Lifegivers now available on

Shenandoah accompanied the Project Peace on Earth (www.projectpeaceonearth.org) to Israel & Palestine where she performed in Bethlehem Performing Arts center to sing songs of peace with other stellar performers. Concerts around the world are planned to bring the message of peace.

Shenandoah's new CD, Lifegivers, is a tribute to the life cycles of women from the first beating of the heart to when her spirit leaves to walk across the stars along the Milky Way as she returns home to the Skyworld where she will be welcomed by her loved ones. Each song is meant to bring the listener to a place of celebration for every cycle of life.

"As I asked for these melodies to flow," Shenandoah recalls, "I realized I was inspired by different aspects of rhythm and music from different cultures of the planet. It has been my great honor to be able to be embraced by many lifegivers of the world; new borns, young women, pregnant women, women in love, women who sing, women who teach, and women of wisdom."



"...the Native American music scene is brimming with skilled, adventurous artists, such as Robbie Robertson,
Bill Miller, Rita Coolidge... and, arguably the best of all, the remarkable Joanne Shenandoah." - USA TODAY


Everyone who hears Joanne Shenandoah loves her music:

"So very beautiful, it not only touches your heart, but melts it..."

"Her pure voice, and the wonderful compositions, transport us to another level..."

"She honors her Iroquois traditions and enlightens our own..."

"Her music really does take you on a wonderful journey and fills your heart with a message of peace, love and tolerance..."

"The music stays not just in your head but somewhere in deep your heart..."

"Her songs carry a voice of wisdom within them that makes you want to sing along and at times get up and dance..."

"She captures the heart of her people in her songs. I loved the soul and passion..."

"Her songs are very powerful and her voice is divine..."

"I was lucky enough to see her (perform in person), she took my breath away..."

"Listening to her music is a humbling experience..."

"I would recommend her music to anyone. Her music is full of passion and a joy to listen to..."

"If you ever get a chance to see this beautiful woman sing in person GO AND SEE HER!"

Displays The evening will start with a “Meet & Greet” in the Welcoming & Gathering Hall. During the "Meet & Greet" you will have the opportunity to browse all of the display tables and meet with the many representatives from the local non-profit animal welfare organizations. You'll learn about the organizations, the services they offer, volunteer opportunities and their upcoming events.
Many of these organizations will also offer some very unique and wonderful items for sale, and perhaps some silent auction items! So please come prepared to spend some time to browse the tables and show your support. Your support goes a long way towards helping thousands of homeless animals right here in the Greater Rochester area. So they all say, THANK YOU! Displays
