Songs of the Wild: Haruhuani Spruce

4-6pm, Black Cat Books & Coffee, 128 N. Broadway,

Some locals know her as a doctor or — more recently — a potter. But long before all that, Haruhuani Spruce was an environmental activist, and a singer. Many of her early songs came to her while in the forests of Oregon. She sang these songs on tour with the Earth First! Roadshow and elsewhere throughout the Pacific Northwest as part of the effort to save the ancient forest. Since then she has slowly come to terms with what seems to be the permanent disappearance of earth’s wild natural world. Her more recent songs reflect that spiritual journey, and the peace she’s found, which she shares through her music.
