Artists and Activism
Throughout history songwriters have given voice to society’s concerns. They’ve marched for human rights and against wars; raised funds at concerts and rallied fans to action; stood beside laborers and exposed corporate corruption. They’ve used words and melodies to fight without fists, and led when we needed leadership.
It is these creative citizens (Ed Anderson, Marilyn Bergman, Sara Baraeilles, Bo Bice, Jen Chapin, Catie Curtis, George Duke, Ferron, Michael Franti, Richie Havens, Ed Hamell, Carole King, Kris Kristofferson, Murry Hammond, Sara Hickman, Lance and Larry Hoppen, Michael Johnathan, Aaron Lewis, Kathy Mattea, Kate McGarry, Jon McLaughlin, Andrew McMahon, James McMurtry, Bonnie Raitt, Johnette Napolitano, Graham Nash, Tom Paxton, Jason Reeves, Al Schnier, Peggy Seeger, Pete Seeger, Vonda Shepard, Todd Snider, Chip Taylor, Phil Vassar, Natalie Walker, Cris Williamson and Rachael Yamagata) we’ve asked to shine a spotlight on the issue they feel is the most important for us to address. From global to local, general to specific, it is what we, as a music community, want our leaders to know. (From Sept/Oct 2008, Issue 112, 11 pages)
