Had a great time (with Elena) at the People’s Music Network (the progressive protest musicians’, singers’, and songwriters’ association) winter gathering in Springfield, MA over the weekend. Getting together with so many committed and talented activists is a real treat. The workshops that I attended led by David Rovics and Steve Suffet were most enjoyable and instructive. I was privileged to lead a workshop on “Performing Music for People Who Have Lost Their Homes”, based on my experiences at numerous holiday dinners and parties in NYC and entertaining folks in Super Storm Sandy shelters. Also worked the mixing board for part of the round robin.
