Welcome

  . . . to Arvel Bird's official website.  Arvel's been busy working on a new project, but not what you might think.  Although he continues light touring and composing new music . . . he and Kimberly have founded a Spiritual Center in Cottonwood, Arizona!

The Center of Universal Light is located at Old Town Center for the Arts.  As of April 1st, Arvel and Kimberly share the Sunday Message, Music and Mantra and occasionally bring in other brilliant Guest Speakers and Musicians on scheduled Sundays.  

The Center of Universal Light is an independent, unaffiliated, unorthodox spiritual center, celebrating the diversity of life, spirituality and encouraging people to follow their own spiritual path.  You can read more about it at Center of Universal Light.

He will continue his currently scheduled performances "on the road".  Feel free to email us with any questions.  info@arvelbird.com

Let Celtic Indian and legendary performer Arvel Bird, 2016 GSENM Artist in Residence, lead you in exploring the creative process through music and place, tapping your connection to the land and unleashing your personal soul song. Weaving local cultures, experiences on GSENM, stories of the ancient ones, and respect for Spirit everywhere into this workshop, join Arvel with your own musical instrument. A limited number of percussive instruments will be available. Open to all ages.

Arvel traces his maternal heritage and part of his musical inspiration to the Shivwits, a local Southern Paiute band that was placed on a reservation in southern Utah but whose territory originally ranged from what is now Grand Canyon-Parashant National Monument to the fertile Santa Clara & Virgin Rivers. Music remains a fundamental part of social and ceremonial society for Southern Paiutes.
