Once you hear one of Spirit Wing's impassioned performances you will not soon forget their intense respect for their people and the history of Native Americans or that they have become one of the most popular Native American acts in the Middle Atlantic States.

Spirit Wings performers are: Barbara Gregg Andrews-Christy; vocals, flutes, percussion, Barry Lee; vocals, guitar, expertly backed up by Chris Hawley; bass, percussion and Doug Penglase, bass,percussion.

Spirit Wing was a finalist for Native American Music Awards in 2006, 2007, 2009 and 2010. Red Kroz Bluez (our alter ego) was nominated in 2014!

Since the year 2000, Spirit Wing has appeared at many Native American Festivals within Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, and Virginia. They are also a popular feature at Coffeehouses and Folk and Acoustic music festivals .

A small sample of their prior appearances include; Bethlehem Musikfest, Philadelphia Folk Festival, Nassau Community College Folk Festival, Delmarva Folk Festival, Two Moons Memorial Powwow, Southeastern Cherokee Powwow, Forksville Folk Festival, Susquehanna Music and Arts Festival, Penns Landing, Hickory Fest, etc.

Their music comes from a strong folk/acoustic music tradition along with traditional Native songs that date back hundreds of years. All four members of Spirit Wing have performed in various types of bands and ensembles that feature Rock, Blues, Bluegrass, and Country music.
