These are some of the songs that I perform when I play out in the community. I’ll be playing out at Starry Nites Café on March 31st from 8-10 pm for a fund raiser for Rochester Free Radio.
Song #1 “I Shall Be Released“ – (Bob Dylan) One of Dylan’s older songs that he has performed more than any other.
Song #2 “Gonna Sing It” – An upbeat positive song that encourages us to sing with all our might. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vsdc6RXMVI8&index=19&list=PLE97D99925458A2C2
Song #3 “So Long It’s Been Good to Know You” – (Woody Guthrie) A Depression era song that Woody would get the people singing on his travels across America.
Song #4 “Help Us to Know What Love Is” – A joyful song that requests some help in our search to understand what love is. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ihw_MSc9c-8&list=PLOyRYerTUWm1wWx0rABevP5sOfMkRgmtp&t=5s&index=3
Song #5 “Puttin’ on the Style” – New verses to a traditional folk song originally written at the turn of the 19th century. It’s a song about the different “styles” that many folks put on as they go through life. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zj3bZoszogs&index=2&list=PLOyRYerTUWm0S-lJlUc555MOx6VbfS9qL
Song #6 “Stand Up (and Be Your Love)” – A song that calls for a renewed effort by us to stand up and share our love. Perhaps, by doing so, we can bring about some changes to make this world a little better for everyone. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e71rta1hAiw&index=22&list=PLOyRYerTUWm0DE4ISRsl4aW5VXvcEWoaf&t=89s
Song #7 “This Land” – (Woody Guthrie) Woody’s best known song. Here is a link to a music video to this song with new verses that I wrote. My version is called “This Land Needs Care from You and Me.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lrVtRJJg4io&index=13&list=PLOyRYerTUWm0DE4ISRsl4aW5VXvcEWoaf
