Hypnotically interweaving storytelling, laughter, exotic instruments and his distinctive voice, Granger’s unique sound and energy have been featured in film, at National Monuments, Sundance Film Festival, International Native American and World Flute Festival, Santa Fe Indian Market and The Gathering of Nations. He has collaborated with R. Carlos Nakai, Coyote Oldman, and Peter Phippen. His music can be heard on Music from the Hearts of Space, Sirius, other stations worldwide. NPR’s All Things Considered profiled Granger and his rare Hang in a feature called Like Water Over Bells, and New Mexico Magazine calls Granger’s music, “Richly layered with the sounds of a variety of flutes and percussion instruments…[offering] more depth than some flute solo recordings you might find.”


A Las Cruces resident, Granger has composed for multi-media art shows and the NMSU Dance Department. Awards include the Indian Summer Music Award, New Mexico Music Industry Awards and two Native American Music Awards nominations. A 2012 project, Strong Medicine: Love in Cancer, reflects his ongoing commitment to providing soothing music to hospice patients.

Potluck (traditional foods list below)

Ceremony & Fire!

BRING:  If you have a charm of black, red & white yarn woven in winter with intentions for spring fruition, bring it and we will complete the spell!

or make one now & meditate upon what you learned / how you’ve grown over winter’s journey to the underworld. (Natural fibers best – may be burned.)


Key actions to keep in mind during this time in the Wheel of the Year include openings and new beginnings. Work for improving communication and group interaction are recommended, as well as fertility and abundance. Ostara is a good time to start putting those plans and preparations you made at Imbolc into action. Start working towards physically manifesting your plans now. The most common colors associated with Ostara are lemon yellow, pale green and pale pink. However, also appropriate colors include grass green, all pastels, Robin’s egg blue, violet, and white. Stones to use during the Ostara celebration include aquamarine, rose quartz, and moonstone. Animals associated with Ostara are rabbits and snakes. Mythical beasts associated with Ostara include unicorns, merpeople, and pegasus. Plants and herbs associated with Ostara are crocus flowers, daffodils, jasmine, Irish moss, snowdrops, and ginger.

Foods in tune with this day (linking your meals with the seasons is a fine way of attuning with Nature) include eggs, egg salad, hard-boiled eggs, honey cakes, first fruits of the season, fish, cakes, biscuits, cheeses, honey and ham. You may also include foods made of seeds, such as sunflower, pumpkin and sesame seeds, as well as pine nuts. Sprouts are equally appropriate, as are leafy, green vegetables.
