Celebrate Earth Day with this engaging folk concert with a message, including ideas for a sustainable future for humans and non-humans to live in and prosper.

This Musicalia blends folk songs (including sing-alongs), readings, poetry, and humor. Consider it a “revels” for the environment. The program is PG-14, due to adult environmental issues.

The show includes a poem by Wendell Berry, and four traditional songs from singers, including John Langstaff and Bessie Jones. There are songs and readings written by the authors, and songs by Richard Grainger, Bill Stains, Andy Barnes, Kate Wolf, Pete Seeger, Pat Humphries, and Si Kahn.

They will introduce a few serious topics like:

  • What are greenhouse gas emissions, and why should we care?
  • What is the sixth extinction and how is it affecting our families and communities?
  • How does population growth figure in these topics?

There is good news about solutions to report!

David and Kathleen have published the script of the show in a book, so that other performers and non-performers can consider and present these messages of introduction to some hard but pressing topics.

The book will be available at the show for $10.
