And let's not Forget The Burns Sisters Band

All that's best in American Music.

Perhaps it's because I'm an "old hippy", but I have always preferred a certain relevance to my music.

The Burns Sisters capture the essence of music as a tool for social change (and they just flat sing well too). This is what united people during the Viet Nam conflict, and without Dylon, Guthrie, and all the rest of the musicians who gave us a focus, I think the war would have gone on a lot longer than it did.

So here are a couple of clips from the 2006 Philadelphia Folk Festival, enjoy.

Democracy is Coming

Guns & Drums

Of course it's not ALL the hard work of making people think, sometimes they are just plain fun.
