After a trip with Shandra Hees to the Goddess Conference in Glastonbury England three years ago, a vision of creating one here in Manitoba evolved by meeting and mixing dreams with the lovely Chris Hammond. What better place to have a festival that celebrates the Feminine Divinity in the Land and in the People than the Keystone Province — in the centre of Canada?!
Additionally, Kirsten can usually be coerced to sing off color songs and sea shanties using an Ethel Merman voice.
