Reggae concert at SteamPlant to benefit Windhorse School – Sat, Oct 11

Please join us for a fundraising concert at the SteamPlant Event
Center in Salida at 7PM on October 11, 2014 (a Saturday). Kofi Alexander, recording artist and founder of the band Jah Kings, will be performing. His Love CD was nominated “Best Reggae CD” and “Best Reggae Performer” at the 2002 Chicago Music Awards.

The SteamPlant is one of the most enjoyable venues for hearing music in our area–right on the Arkansas River. Have a great night out with a special meal at a local restaurant before or after the concert. The SteamPlant is at the end of “G” Street at Sackett in Salida (near the Boathouse Restaurant). Parking is available in a city lot across the street, or on the boat ramp, on the street and in the City parking lot less than a block away.

This benefit is to raise donations for the Windhorse School, a project of Native Ways Institute/Dharma Institute (EIN number 93-1039984) founded by Bhikshuni Tenzin Yeshe (a Buddhist monastic ordained by the XIVth Dalai Lama of Tibet). The Windhorse School near Crestone provides a place for young people (and some adults) to learn spiritual teachings while also being taught how to care for, ride and train horses.

Tickets are $10 in advance or $12 at the door and are available online at, by phone at 719 530 0933, or at the box office.
