Chip Boggs, Spoken Word Live Performance

Continually inspired by the more-than-human landscape, Chip Boggs has lived his adult life in close communion with the 365 acre homestead he stewards on the South Coast of Oregon. His permaculture ethics have motivated many years of teaching interns, touring school children and hosting the natural building center of the Cob Cottage Company. His spoken word piece was inspired by the Broadway musical “Hamilton” and the precepts of Dr. David Abrams, author of “Spell of the Sensuous” and “Becoming Animal”.

Ziggy, Live Music


Silent Action Room

Ziggy (Richard Eisner) has been entertaining folk in Humboldt County and the High Rockies for several decades. Much of ZIGGY's repertoire includes some originals as well as classic cover songs. In the last decade he has centered his passion on mother earth, musically preaching against the daily insults she endures from human hands and more importantly through the short sightedness of our political strategists and (alleged) leaders.
