Sivananda Yoga Camp concert

On Saturday, July 25 at 8 p.m. (EDT) I did a live stream concert for the Sivananda Yoga Ashram Camp in Val Morin, Quebec.  It was supposed to be on their Facebook page  but for some reason it landed on mine.  Once it was over I shared it around so its probably easiest to find on Ken Whiteley’s Music page. It was a night of spiritual music, both traditional and original including a number of songs from my new cd, Calm In The Eye Of The Storm.  I was originally scheduled to be performing in person there that night, but of course all my summer live appearances have been cancelled.  If you wish to make a donation to support my work, you may do so from  Ken’s website Store   or   www.paypal.me/kenwhiteley.
