Charlie Ballantine

Fri, May 24, 2019 6:00 PM - Fri, May 24, 2019 10:00 PM @ Online Event

Little Flower House Concert Series is pleased to feature Charlie Ballantine for our premier event on May 24, 2019.

Born in the American heartland of Indianapolis, Indiana, Charlie Ballantine’s quicksilver guitar is all Fender Telecaster flux and flow, Deluxe Reverb danger and drive. Ballantine has two current releases: Life Is Brief: The Music of Bob Dylan and Where Is My Mind?, with two albums prior, all drawing from music and experiences documented long before he was born.
Ballantine graduated from Indiana University in 2013 with a degree in Jazz Studies; he currently teaches guitar performance at Marian University in Indianapolis.

Currently working on an album of original material, Ballantine continues to tour the Midwest, listening and watching, following the muse. What’s he listening for? …“There’s this sound I hear in my head, I get really close, but I can never quite attain it. It’s hard to say, it’s hard to verbalize, but it’s a pretty fun time to be a guitar a young guitar player right now.”

Benefit Dinner for Uplands PEAK

Sat, May 25, 2019 5:00 PM - Sat, May 25, 2019 7:00 PM @ Twin Lakes Recreation Center

Hey Bloomington-area veg-community! Would you like to help make a difference in the lives of rescued farm animals? This Memorial Day weekend, let US do all the cooking! We are a group of committed activists that have come together to host a dinner to benefit Indiana’s very own Uplands PEAK Farm Animal Sanctuary!

Uplands PEAK is driven by their mission to rescue and rehabilitate abused and neglected farmed animals, educate the public to the benefits of a healthy vegan lifestyle, and promote sustainability. This dinner will make it possible for PEAK to install two solar fans plus a panel to power the fans for the cows’ shelter. Their barn is not close to electricity hookups and fans in the heat of Summer are a must!

A purchased ticket gets you an all vegan buffet-style Indian dinner as well as a chance to win a gift basket in a raffle-drawing (additional raffle tickets can be purchased during the dinner)… so what are you waiting for?! Let’s come together for the animals!

Event Info:

What: All Vegan Benefit Dinner in support of Uplands PEAK Farm Animal Sanctuary

When: Saturday, May 25th from 5pm to 7pm

Where: City of Bloomington Twin Lakes Recreation Center at 1700 W Bloomfield Road, Bloomington, Indiana

Price per ticket: $15

Global Call: Journey of the Universe with Brian Swimme

Join the May Pachamama Alliance Global Call, a 75-Minute conference call for this global community.

About the call

Discover the connection between understanding cosmic evolution and bringing forth a thriving, just, and sustainable world. One of the guiding principles at Pachamama Alliance is that people’s actions are correlated with how they see the world—the story they tell themselves about the world. Come hear a new story about the 13.7 billion year unfolding of the universe from Professor of Philosophy, Cosmology, and Consciousness Brian Swimme and discover new actions based on the evolutionary cosmology from Brian’s Journey of the Universe, which draws together scientific discoveries in astronomy, geology, and biology with humanistic insights concerning the nature of the universe.

About the speaker

Brian Swimme is Director of the Center for the Story of the Universe at the California Institute of Integral Studies. He received his Ph.D. from the Department of Mathematics at the University of Oregon in 1978 for work in gravitational dynamics and brings the context of story to our understanding of the trajectory of the universe. In order to communicate the story of the universe and assist in the emergence of a flourishing Earth community, Brian writes books, creates educational video series, lectures widely, and co-wrote and hosted the award winning film Journey of the Universe.

the United States extensively. Frances and The Foundation have released three EPs and one full-length album to date, and have opened for the likes of Alabama Shakes, Gaslight Anthem, and The Glorious Sons. Samantha Frances has been musically inspired since a young age when she was apart of a local children’s choir, which developed into her utilizing her teen angst to create and write music in Colorado Springs. She moved to Nashville in 2006 with hopes of turning her creative aspirations into a career. The current lineup consists of Drummer Wes Cramer, Guitarist Nathan Zumwalt, and Bassist/Frontwoman Samantha Frances. Coming from three completely varied musical backgrounds the band used their broad range of influences to create the wide-ranging rock and roll sound they have become known for.
