Described as “Southwest world music”, it is also said to have healing properties. Granger also performs with Theatre Dojo of Deming, NM, in the plays “An Illiad”, and “Killing Buddah”.
A spiritual teacher, speaker and minister, Granger volunteers with Hospice care, playing his music for patients and their loved ones, as well as staff.
