Event Description

     St. Clair Productions presents Krishna Das in concert at the Historic Ashland Armory, 208 Oak St., Ashland, on Tuesday, July 1, 7:30 p.m.  Tickets on sale at www.stclairevents.com, the Music Coop in downtown Ashland, Fretwell Music in the Ashland Street Cinema Shopping Center, and Aquarius Books, at 528 NE E St. in Grants Pass.  Tickets cost $35 in advance and $40 at the door.


            Krishna Das is touring in support of his new CD Kirtan Wallah. Kirtan Wallah, brings refreshing echoes of country and folk music to the kirtan tradition. It's a new flavor for the eclectic artist, but one that makes a lot of sense. Kirtan is very much the yoga scene's folk music: a heartfelt and homespun style that unites people in song


            Hailed as yoga's "rock star," Krishna Das put sacred Sanskrit mantras on the music map. His resonant baritone voice and energizing East-meets-West take on traditional Indian devotional chanting has become the soundtrack for the growing worldwide yoga movement throughout the past two decades.


            Born Jeffrey Kagel, a baby boomer from suburban Long Island, N.Y., few artists in the kirtan (call-and-response chanting) genre have impacted the musical mainstream in quite the same way as Krishna Das. After a stint as the frontman for Soft White Underbelly (who would later change their name to Blue Öyster Cult) in the late '60s, Krishna Das traveled to India in 1970 where he became a follower of the spiritual teacher Neem Karoli Baba (Mahara-ji).


            Krishna Das earned his first career Grammy nomination in 2012 for Best New Age Album for Live Ananda. He co-founded the world music label Karuna/Triloka Records; published a collection of stories, teachings and insights in Chants Of A Lifetime: Searching For A Heart Of Gold (2011); and was the subject of the 2012 feature documentary film, One Track Heart: The Story Of Krishna Das. He also has his own SiriusXM satellite radio station, Krishna Das Yoga Radio.

Evidence | Facts – Climate Change: Vital Signs of the Planet | NASA

The Earth's climate has changed throughout history. Just in the last 650,000 years there have been seven cycles of glacial advance and retreat, with the abrupt end of the last ice age about 7,000 years ago marking the beginning of the modern climate era — and of human civilization. Most of these climate changes are attributed to very small variations in Earth’s orbit that change the amount of solar energy our planet receives.

Father-Son Duo Helped Create 51,000 New Beehive Colonies Across The Globe| Intelligent Living

The bee population is shrinking. But this duo is saving them. Stuart and Cedar Anderson spent a whole ten years trying to figure out how to harvest honey without disturbing bees. Their solution was an Indiegogo-funded invention called Flow Hive that replicates a real beehive without putting the bees at risk when you harvest honey. The Flow Hive allows the honey to flow out of the hive straight into a jar without crushing or disrupting the bees inside. What a brilliant design!
