We are Planted by the Water, a collaborative of musicians, artists and story tellers. Our mission is to enrich the lives of others through ‘music, art and hospitality’… to foster a spiritual well being… a refreshing of the soul.
We believe that ‘art’ in its purest form… can restore the broken-hearted, lift the souls of the tired and weary, give peace and comfort to those who mourn and stir up hope for those who have no hope at all.
We are best able to share our gifts during a live performance and so it is that we host regular events in homes, pubs, clubs, prisons, Churches, art galleries and concert spaces all around the world.
A live event might just be a performance of music or song or, it might include a live art performance by one or more of our visual artists. We work with local community groups to throw what we call ‘party for the soul’ events in their neighborhoods. These are usually inclusive, joyous, festive occasions governed by hospitality; which usually means great food (and wine) and a rich outpouring of music, art and story telling, by members of our own team or, any local artisans we can wrangle into our fold.
To be planted by the water... is to be alive and well, living as the people we were born to be. It is in the quietness that the fresh streams of wellness flow into our being. In this safe place we are comfortable in our identity. We carry an inner permission to develop our natural gifts and talents, without fear. We can endure the 'scorching sun'... the stressful circumstances that are sent to try us and, as our 'leaf' returns to its natural color... we bear the fruit that nourishes others in our community.
