For the past 13 years Arvel has toured the U.S.and Internationally and has recently made Cottonwood his home as Co-Founder of Center of Universal Light.

Singer/ songwriter and mixed media artist, Wendy Harford, is locally well known for her many community activities and including her unique folky style of music.
Arvel will play his own music as well as weave his way in and out of William's, Kaleah's and Wendy's music. Kimberly Kelley, Arvel's wife and musical partner will play her keyboard and bodhran and will sing harmonies on several selections.
These five talented performers have created a "performance in the round" program to keep you fully energized, entertained and inspired for the holiday season!
