ADHAMH ROLAND

Mystic musings in a queerly folk fashion

BIO

“Frighteningly clever and disarmingly heartfelt folksongs” -Examiner.com

 

Adhamh Roland is a genderqueer visionary activist who sings about resilience, human experience, evolution, interconnectedness and freedom from cycles of violence and oppression. He has toured internationally for over ten years—4,000 miles of which he bicycled. He has released five albums including an intimate soundscape of his medical transition in which he harmonized with his pre-testosterone and post-testosterone voice. Adhamh has scored film and theater performances, toured and created with Benchpress Burlesque, Missoula Oblongata, and The Tranny Roadshow, and was featured in the 2009 documentary “Riot Acts: Flaunting Gender Deviance in Musical Performance.” Adhamh is currently involved with Western Massachusetts Showing Up For Racial Justice as well as racial justice movements within his Theravada Buddhist faith community. He has facilitated workshops for youth, adults and children around the country on topics of anti-oppression, gender liberation, bicycle touring, mindfulness, social emotional tools, and conflict resolution.
