The general store was once the original big box retailer; only it came complete with gossip and a place to tie up your horse. In Grey County, the general store culture is still thriving today. They have reinvented themselves to be everything a modern retailer cannot be, which makes them so much fun, and delicious.
Mapstone is on their Canadian 'Patience and Persistence' Tour and are stopping in Durham.
Steeped in conscious lyrics, thoughtful grooves and an energy that is simply captivating.
Blending and bending Reggae, Folk and world music into a unique fusion that has been quoted as “Tribal Heart Roots music”
¨“We are Song carriers with a message of strength, hope, unity, community and universal love. It is our mission to uplift, inspire and activate our global tribe. Elevating hearts and minds one beat and one melody at a time. Collectively moving and grooving our way towards a more abundant, vibrant and healthy future and existence with each other and our planet.
Combining Voice, Didgeridoo, bass, percussion, guitar and Hammond organ, Mapstone infuse the dancefloor with an uplifting and enticing sound. The lyrics and music are powerful and take the listeners and dancers on a deep journey; some say transformative; some say awakening.
Their music is from the heart, for the heart and of the heart.
