This year we are pleased to offer two different musical performers at Pagan Pride Day: Danny Ocean and Violet.
Danny Ocean is from the eastern Kentucky area, and was an active member of his high school chorus and chamber singers program; Danny became the only person from Belfry High School to become an All-State Vocalist. He has studied music under the teachings of renowned composer/professor Dr. Henry Leck, and has spent the last several years playing folk rock, indie, and punk music. Around April of 2010, Daniel began playing acoustic music which he thought looked very promising. and so far, has proven to be.
Violet is a classically trained pianist, playing the piano since childhood. Her musical influences range from the Allman Brothers to Scott Joplin. Raised on Broadway and The Beatles, Violet is constantly inspired by singer/songwriters such as Elton John, Sara Bareilles, AJ Croce and Carole King. Known to sing and play in many a garage around town, and a regular at open mics such as LexJam, Violet hopes to share her love of music everytime she plays.
