DETAILS: legend Cornelius (Oneida, Navajo, Potowatomi) is a multi-instrumentalist musician from Topeka, Kansas. He learned honky-tonk/Irish fiddle as well as classical violin when he was young. He picked up guitar in high school and counts among his influences Charlie Daniels, Eddie Van Halen, Zakk Wylde, Tom Morello, and Dimebag Darrell. Cornelius puts his own spin on the concept of “violin concert” with various effect pedals and a Seven-string Flying V electric violin.

SWAIA performances showcase local, regional, and national indigenous performing talent, including dancers, poets, and musicians. SWAIA Performances are co-curated by Goiyo Perez, a performing arts coordinator working with SWAIA, and Robyn Rikoon, artistic director of the Santa Fe Playhouse. Both iconic Santa Fe organizations are celebrating their centennial year in 2022.
