Looking Glass & The Dreamers


SKU: DOK1015 Categories: , ,


Imaginative productions and performances by outstanding players and singers bring twelve new songs to life. They tell the tragic history of the Nez Perce Dreamers — and more, they become a mirror of the current state of affairs and the “American Dream.”

Looking Glass & The Dreamers is the culmination of Danny O’Keefe’s years of historical research, first-hand exploration, and emotional turmoil spent unraveling the tragic story of the Nez Perce Native Americans and how they lost their homeland in present-day Oregon and Idaho. Along the way the project grew and melded into a collection of compelling narratives, historical photographs and the twelve captivating songs that make up the package.

Danny writes – It all began as a dream. I was trying to write a song using metaphors or twists on the allegories of Alice à la Through the Looking Glass. Unable to connect the allegories in any meaningful way, I drifted into sleep and dream. As I was waking to the room, I was given the words: “Looking Glass in Oregon one night had a dream. Of soldiers slowly riding in a solemn, endless stream.” And that’s how it began. A mirror was being held up to me … and a lens.
