Concerts with Purpose

Majority of profits from this event will be used to establish the Ferry Creek Land Trust in order to protect and preserve the native coastal habitat located outside of Bandon, OR. As a first-generation landlord of Spanish, French & Native American descent, Tye Austin is currently fostering the land to host musical concerts, mushroom therapy sessions, sweat lodge ceremonies, wilderness survival demonstrations, surf camps, and healing retreats. Once enough land is acquired, Tye will re-zone the area into a state campground complete with tent sites, tipis, yurts, and treehouses. He plans to gift his entire property to the Coquille Tribe Restoration Act of 1989 in his will, a legislative effort to restore native land to the tribe who originally inhabited the area.
