"Led by clarinetist Beth Fleenor, Figeater make improvised music that ranges from insistently propulsive and buoyant - Fleenor can channel the spirit of Raymond Scott with aplomb - to aloof atmospheres, thugged-up backbeats, and loony melismatic rants." (The Stranger) "Beth Fleenor transcends labels - a multi-talented, creative force in Seattle." (City Arts Magazine)

**A bon voyage party to remember...beth boxing and bethnic chanting, screaming, rocking, thrashing & collapsing in a one of a kind send off as Performing unit: Special Fig heads to NY! All proceeds go to Figeater's NY travel expenses!

A GIFT












Chiefs are given an eagle feather when they have learned to promote every being's right to respect and dignity and they have learned to honor the intrinsic relationship between all things.

"Many Native American cultures held Eagle feathers to be sacred and they were seen as powerful symbols of Chiefs, Shamans, Healers and Medicine Men. The eagle feathers assisted these individuals in having their prayers and wishes guided to their intended Spirits and Gods. Warriors use eagle feathers in their battle dress to summon the courage, strength and qualities associated with the eagle"
