Are you a part of the tradition of music for social change? Join us Friday, June 6 through Sunday, June 8, 2014, for the People’s Music Network Summer Gathering at the Epworth Camp and Retreat Center in High Falls, NY.
FRIDAY EVENING CONCERT
The weekend begins with a very special concert headlined by Terry Leonino and Greg Artzner of Magpie, the 2014 PMN Artists-in-Residence, known for their engaging performances of hard-hitting topical songs. Later that evening, we’ll have our first Campfire Song Swap; PMN newcomers are especially encouraged to attend and share their music.
Calling Songwriters and Climate Justice Activists!
People’s Music Network (PMN) – an organization that has been promoting music for progressive social change since 1977 – invites you to submit your best song on the global climate crisis (at no cost) to a new project, called, “PMN Song of the Month.”
We want songs that inspire courageous activism to stop the manifold assaults to global climate stability such as unsustainable energy systems, militarism, and anti-ecological rural and urban development. We want songs that help us courageously face the reality of a warming planet in ways that foster solidarity among people. We want songs that deepen our awareness of how regular people can play a role in re-shaping their communities to be ecologically resilient.
