Expressing love and community through music and the dance of life
My community is currently experiencing great loss. We will begin healing with time. Yet as I write this I know friends (who are musicians and dancers) willing to put all their energy into keeping in tact those little bits of what can be saved from devastation. Literally, my friends were restless in the burning, smoking night hard at work in a virtual hell to protect both the oldest and the newest things we have which make us this community (Chico, Helltown, Paradise Ridge, the valley, the foothills and beyond).
Irish music, all music and artistic expression, boils down to the community of people who live it. We’re down and fighting. I trust we will be playing music together yet. It will take a lot of time and energy.
