RailRoad Folk Tour

I am now back in Terlingua, back from the month long RailRoad Folk tour with my friend and songwriter, Elam Blackman. While I have been a songwriter for awhile, I would consider this my first national tour. The economics and logistics of touring independently never seemed appealing to me before the idea of doing it by train. Well, it worked! We performed in Central Texas, Far West Texas, Yucca Valley, Santa Monica, SF and the Bay area, Portland Oregon, Bellingham Washington, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Chicago, and New Orleans. I could write pages and pages about it, but instead, here are way too many photos.

It is hopeful to think that the progressive, positive, and organized counter movements which have formed over the last eight years might become empowered instead of demonized. And that when we speak up about the environment and our human role within the natural and civil world, that our voices will be absorbed instead of deflected.

Now let's remove the Bushes and plant some trees.
