Global Fest 2017: Megan Stubbs – Changing Skies
One sky can reflect an eternity of different colours, textures, and feelings. No matter where you are in the world, whether night or day, it is still one sky. The concert is inspired by the skies of many different countries: from Tanzanian to Nepalese to Nordic and beyond. Seen through the eyes of Megan Stubbs, a multi-cultural, multi-instrumental artist, teacher and composer, she carries her inspiration from her life travels to her music. Combining cultures and styles, her music will transport you around the world to see glimpses of changing skies through rhythm, movement and melody.
