About Refugia Festival

Refugia Festival is a two-day festival advocating for environmental conservation and preservation through the sense of sound. Our festival highlights the sonic beauty of our natural surroundings through music performances, educational programming, and community service to create meaningful environmental change on a local level. With each presentation of Refugia Festival, communities will take steps to preserve and celebrate their ecosystem through awareness of and interaction with the surrounding soundscapes.

About Refugia Festival's Founder, Alexis C. Lamb

Alexis C. Lamb (b. 1993) is a composer, percussionist, and educator whose work seeks to cultivate a connectedness to natural, historical, and societal relationships. Her music incorporates a variety of mediums, such as oral histories, field recordings, improvisation, and community input. Lamb’s music has been regarded as “a pleasure in its own right” with “sparkling optimism throughout” (I Care If You Listen).

Lamb finds joy in improvising in a variety of natural soundscapes, listening to how the natural world responds to her human-made music. She has over a decade of experience incorporating nature-inspired themes into compositional work and has collaborated with other artists and acoustic ecologists eager to make a positive difference in the world through our sonic sense.
