Loren R. Russell


We’ve all lost a gentle upstanding Valley man and entertainer.



On Saturday April 22, 2017 a tribute concert will be held at the North Mountain Visitor Center to honor the life of Loren R. Russell, a local Native American flute player, storyteller, member of the musical trio, Silverback, and an enrolled member of the Gila River Indian Community. Loren also told his stories and played Native American Flute at Wild Horse Pass Resort.


A suggested $10 or more donation for the 90 minute concert will benefit Loren Russell’s surviving family.


The concert will feature the music of Silverback, The Arizona Flute Circle, the Westside Story tellers and other professional entertainers. Our M.C. will be the one and only Sule Greg Wilson, another great storyteller, teacher and musician.


Silverback currently consists of John Mahoney, percussionist/instrumentalist, and Eric Laubach, guitarist, pianist, and singer/songwriter. Many storytellers and musicians that knew Loren will be participating in this tribute concert. Every five minutes a different entertainer will pay tribute to this gentle soul. 18 magnificent 5 minute shows. No one will be bored on this Saturday afternoon. The concert will be held from 2pm to 3:30pm in the concert room at the North Mountain Visitor Center, 12950 N 7th St., Phoenix (south of Thunderbird Rd).


Mark your calendars to come out and have a great time paying tribute to this gentle soul.  Even if you did not know Loren, you will leave this tribute a better person, and he’ll know you were there.
