Red George & Loreena McKennitt
A great experience for Optimist Red George. Congratulations Red we are proud of you!
“An honour and a privilege to be invited by world-renowned musician Loreena McKennitt she wanted me to play my native flute as she played on her magical harp collaboration and duet soulful music the Huron Carol was the song it was played at this old school in Stratford Ontario with only few people allowed in the room I believe there was only six of us one of them being my good friend Matthew Maynard who introduced me to her music and I fell in love with the sound in her voice when I first heard it .She gifted me a set of her Greatest Hits on CD and DVD as well I gifted her a small eagle feather in honour of her recognition and raising awareness about that issues regarding pollution and taking care of the land she's a beautiful person has a voice of an Angel I've never felt like that before playing my flute with another musician such as her I felt really moved and we connected spiritually and emotionally.Dreams really do come true I told my friend Matthew I would like to have a duet with this Loreena McKennitt someday and it happened manifestation my ambition in my optimism and my willingness and desire to make things happen for the greater good I told Loreena McKennitt that I am Bridge builder trying my best to work towards Truth and Reconciliation on behalf of anishinabe people of kettle in Stony Point First Nation I told her that I have forgiveness in my heart and whatever the government has done First Nations people in the past I have forgiven i hope people can move forward and try to inspire others as well .Larena told me that she had studied the history about what the government has done to the First Nations people tragic it was and still is so I feel this was a great experience this happened on the day of December 7th 2020 4:20 p.m. Bridge there was a small video made also for the Royal Canadian Air Force we wish everybody a Merry Christmas peace and joy.”
