Shelley Morningsong

Artist

At the Huajatolla Heritage Festival in June 2019 we were so honored with Shelley Morningsong and Fabian Fontanelle being our featured guest artists.  They won all our hearts with their talent, warmth and engaging personalities.  They also fell in love with all the good things and people that make up La Veta.   We hope to have them back in 2020.

Shelley has been honored with three nominations by the Native American Music Awards, including the most prestigious award “Entertainer of the Year”.  She is certainly deserving of that in our book!  Please help make that a reality by casting a vote for Shelley.  She is also nominated in the “Best Blues Recording” and “Best Radio Program”.  I voted and it is somewhat laborious as there are many categories to go through and there were only a couple of other performers that I had any familiarity with.  It just felt so good to vote for our friend, Shelley.
