Dancing words: ‘A good song reminds us what we are fighting for’

20140128-142721.jpg

Today the world said goodbye to one of our greatest folk musicians and activists, whose songs protested against some if our great injustices. Our song is so often individual & introspective, his passing reminds me again of the power of song to unite, inspire & provoke social change. What a well lived life, rest in peace Pete Seeger.

Found Things: Laura Veirs – Tumble Bee.

Over the course of an average week, we come across little things that are all pretty, sparkly and brighten our days, from music and art to cafe’s and shops, here are some of the gems we have found.. 

There is a peter pan part of me, that skips in delights to the colours, smells and sounds of childhood.  So, imagine my ecstacy in discovering the exceedingly lovely Laura Veirs had created an album of covers and recompositions of American childhood songs. It is tender and sad, whilst being sleepy and happy.  A happy find…enjoy
