tribal stomp is an all ages, alcohol-free event




Hailing from the Smokey Mountains of East Tennessee, Tuatha Dea is pure primal energy with a Celtic and World twist. The band's eclectic sound blends the tribal vibe of primitive drums with conventional and non conventional instruments such as guitar, bass, modern and Native American flutes, Didgeridoo and more as well as a myriad of vocal styles to create a truly unique sound. Born of a family drum circle, the group delivers an authentic tribal and clannish feel that not only draws the audience into the music but into the moment and family as well. Their rhythmic groove naturally inspires audience participation which has become a staple of their performances. From the beginning the band has embraced its Celtic heritage and meshed the traditional music of Scotland, Ireland and Great Britain with the pulse-pounding heartbeat of the drums!




Vex combines her love of history, costuming, and storytelling into the theatrical expression of dance. She has been performing tribal fusion belly dance since 2012 and is certified in the second level of DanceCraft through Zoe Jakes. Vex often uses her dance to convey strength, but also thrives on the sassy, sultry, and somber sides of the art. Let her gaze draw you in, captivate, and evoke emotion!

Walking on Feathers

Walking on Feathers is about being light in your being, empowering yourself to heal and attain the wisdom to live a dynamic life. As a Usui Reiki Practitioner and Energy Worker for the last several years, Richelle Bolin believes massage therapy to be a natural extension of energy work. Forming the perfect bridge between the two, CranioSacral Therapy is a light touch modality that interfaces with the craniosacral system, the soft tissue and fluid that protect your brain and spinal cord. Through life stresses and injuries, this system can be adversely affected, thereby affecting every other system in the body. These tensions can be released so that that body can heal itself.

She is a graduate of Academic Excellence in an intensive 750 hour program at Cortiva Institute - Chicago School of Massage Therapy, as well as trained in Craniosacral Therapy through the international Upledger Organization. By utilizing circulatory work, Relaxation, Deep Tissue, Myofascial Release, Craniosacral and other clinical techniques, with the energy work, new levels of health a wellness can be reached. She is a member and insured though AMTA (American Massage Therapy Association), a Medallion member with IAHP (International Association of Healthcare Practitioners).Richelle has her bodywork practice at Blu Rain Massage in Antioch, IL.
