The Folk Collective: Kim Moberg Album Release
- The Folk Collective
A concert to present The Seven Fires Prophecy: Suite for Humanity. This original composition retells the ancient Anishinaabe Legend of The Seven Fires Prophecy in song. Long ago, the Anishinaabe were visited by prophets who gave 7 predictions of what the future of this planet would bring. Each prophecy was called a fire and each fire referred to a specific period in time.
“Many Indigenous nations are familiar with The Seven Fires Prophecy but I feel it is important to share it with non Indigenous people as well. I chose to share it through the Folk/Americana genre to reach a wider group on non Indigenous people. The prophecies warn us that if don’t we want to see humanity destroyed, we must learn to live together in peace and harmony with each other and our Earth.” – Kim Moberg

Award-winning Tlingit artist Kim Moberg was born in Juneau, Alaska, and currently calls Cape Cod, MA home. Kim began playing guitar at age 14, but severe stage fright kept her from becoming a professional performer. In 2014 Kim set out to overcome her stage fright and wrote her first song. Kim teamed with Grammy-nominated producer Jon Evans to record two albums: “Above Ground” and “Up Around The Bend.” Both have received worldwide airplay, charting on the Folk Alliance International Folk DJ charts and the NACC Radio charts. Kim and Jon are collaborating on her third album, which features songs that tie ancient prophecies to our current social environment. Kim’s recognitions include the 2021 Rocky Mountain Songwriting Contest Finalist, the 2021 Great American Songwriting Contest Folk/Americana Finalist, and the 2020 CT Folk Grassy Hill Songwriting Competition Winner.
