The first half of the event will be a concert, showcasing the award winning songwriting skills of husband and wife team, Jim and Ashley Cash. Known for their uplifting and inspiring songs, they are dedicated to music as a vehicle for effecting positive change. The second half of the event will be a healing sound bath. Woven Green uses sound to align with the harmonious frequencies of nature and the higher vibrational states of unconditional love and bliss! Jim and Ashley Cash are dedicated to their work in assisting the elevation and harmonization of human consciousness through the use of sound. They use vocal toning, crystal and Tibetan singing bowls, Native Flutes, tuning forks, nature sounds, stringed instruments, and wind gong in order to clear and harmonize the human biofield, chakra system, mental, emotional, physical, and etheric bodies, thereby restoring resonance in mind, body, and spirit. Popular with those interested in metaphysical studies, yoga and sound healing, they have been bringing their unique blend of contemporary folk, rock, new age music to the mid-atlantic area for over ten years. Whether through song or sound, Woven Green invites the listener to embark on a mystical journey towards a greater awareness of the sacred connection between earth, cosmos and the unified source within us all. t$25 advance, $30 at the door. For tickets- www.unityhagerstown.org/calendar and click on the event
