2016 Native American Music Awards "Artist of the Year" Shelley Morningsong (N. Cheyenne/Dutch) has recorded five sensational Native American, Contemporary albums and has emerged as one of New Mexico's finest Native performers. Morningsong has received three Native American music awards, among other awards and accolades, including Native American Music Awards' "Record of the Year" for 2011 (Full Circle). With an alto voice that pulls from the depths of her cowboy boots, and songs with lyrics that cut to the heart, Morningsong will appeal to those who enjoy the music of Buffy Sainte-Marie and Bonnie Raitt. Morningsong has played guitar since she was a youngster, when she also learned to play the classical flute. Since then she's mastered the Native flute, on which she performs skillful, heartfelt instrumentals on some of her compositions.

Shelley also writes theme songs for organizations that she believes in. She has written the theme song for Futures for Children, a very worthy organization who diligently supports Native children to finish high school and get into college. She also wrote the theme song for Electro-Magnetic Health, a group of scientists who are working hard to bring awareness concerning the effects of micromagnetic waves on the earth, humans and nature.

This is the latest in a monthly series of free events in collaboration with the Friends for the Public Library.
