If you know people on the Big Island in Hawaii, November 17th is my concert, followed by this amazing workshop - please let them know about both!


I spent last Saturday night at a benefit to help send an inspired artist into the war zone of the Congo to work with children in the villages where the militias have pressed them into war and abused them ferociously. The evening was so reminiscient of my own communities in the late sixties/early seventies, what are remembered somewhat as hippies, but who also carried a blazing brand for freedom and equality, peace and harmony between people. Seeing that spirit so constant, forty years later, where the chance to help others mixes in with something like a barn-raising party, it pretty much confirms the steadiness of the human vision as far as I am concerned. It may be an option to just throw in the towel at the frustrating ignorance that causes so much needless suffering, but that does not look like a good option to me. Better to remain open-minded about how it is all going to turn out, and get busy helping during your daily life.


I have two Victoria shows in December, the 4th Annual Winter House Concert hosted on the 8th by my friend Harinder, and on the 12th at the Tim Gosley's great Merlin's Sun Home Theatre. Come if you can!

A great shot by my friend Michael Julian Berz

 

Three thoughts
from the beautiful mind
of Frank Zappa

A composer is a guy who goes around forcing his will on unsuspecting air molecules, often with the assistance of unsuspecting musicians.

One of my favorite philosophical tenets is that people will agree with you only if they already agree with you. You do not change people's minds.

All the good music has already been written by people with wigs and stuff.

The Farmer's Cathedral

This recording reflects the Celebration of the Known.
It is the daylight, the bounty of the harvest

Its major key and uplifting themes present the clarity and harmony of nature.
