This week, I'm treating myself to some personal time, and treating YOU to some favorite songs or performances. On Thursday, I'll post a short video collage of three different songs or events from the past 10 years or so. Including:
• Music from my visit to a Maximum Security Men's prison in Kenya- and the powerful song they wrote about their experience of the "justice system". You've told me how much you've appreciated my videos of singing with women in Kenya, in India and Nepal in 2015-16- I know you'll love this one!
• Same Boat Now. One of you requested a song about inclusion, and valuing people's different gifts and abilities. I immediately thought of my song from (can you believe)1985.
We may have come here in different ships
But we're in the same boat now.
Annie Patterson and Peter Blood (editors of Rise Up Singing and more) recently created a video for the song. Enjoy!
• Candles In The Window In concert, with Eve Decker and Lisa Ziegler (Rebecca Riots), from 2009. One of my favorite songs from the prolific Bush era (hard times yield many songs!).
Here's how it works: To keep that weekly Thursday rhythm going, the video will go live Thursday morning, Oct. 22 . The video will be available from then on, to enjoy at your leisure, and share with friends. Feel free to post on your social media.
No need to RSVP--keepin' it real simple this week.
