Music & Speaker #25: Fermentation Expert Donna Maltz with Music by Kelly Hyde

We are pleased to announce that for our 25th Music & Speaker Series event we have Fermentation expert Donna Maltz of Soil to Soul Solutions. The Musician for the evening is the incredible Kelly Hyde.

Donna has been a Soil to Soul Entrepreneur for 40-years. She is an inspirational author and speaker and a Life and Business Coach. Nature, ethics, and regenerative SOULutions are at the forefront of her career and life decisions. Donna offers holistic retreats at her farmstead on the Big Island of Hawaii, emphasizing the benefits of Nature Therapy and the Culinary Arts. She is know by many as Mama Donna, and the Ferment Queen.

Kelly’s music covers an array of folk, reggae, bluegrass, and her own special flavor. Her lyrics speak to the separation between the modern and natural world. Her songs are full of food for thought, and her melodies are soothing and creative. Listeners may feel inclined to laugh or be brought to tears. Kelly’s musical studies started at a young age with keyboard and trumpet. Soon after, she picked up guitar, mostly learning to play by ear. A spark in 2009 lead her to start traveling-landing her on the Big Island of Hawaii. Here she found the Baritone Ukulele and a unique, free environment that allowed words and melodies to come alive and flow effortlessly. After releasing her first album Incredible Journey in February 2014, Kelly Hyde seeks to share her music with the masses.
