Who is the awen family band?

Awen Family Band is a nationally touring world boogie collective offering a musical back to Earth experience, a place to commune with our roots and reconnect with the source. Let the music and moment flow freely without force, guiding us to transcendence, deeper understanding and gratitude towards life. Every Awen Family show is an ever changing collection of musicians from other touring acts that share the same understanding that we are just vessels for the great spirit to flow through us, to hear the song in the life around us and bring it into the physical reality to share with everyone. Every musician to leave their touch on the Awen Family songbook offers a new perspective to the music and what they hear in the songs, making every Awen Family Band show an opportunity to hear the songs presented in a new light as well as new songs that form around certain groups of musicians.
