It's the 3rd rail, the one you avoid at all costs ... This year tho, the day we celebrate our Independence in the USA appears to be a perfect opportunity to consider those 3rd rail topics that so often threaten to derail us: privacy & surveillance, wage inequality & universal health care, climate change, legalization of weed & same sex marriage ... You know what the issues are & you no doubt know where you stand on each one; if you don't, you should take a minute to figure that out. There is no way these things will fail to affect your life & you must grasp them -- that is, in fact, the price of freedom. Get up, stand up: Stand up for your rights.
The reggae poet best known in the US for expressing the soul at the core of these issues is Bob Marley. As befits an Independence Day session featuring his music, the focus is on songs of freedom & love -- because what's the point of freedom if you can’t share it with those you love?
Special two-hour celebration session - Enjoy!
