Songwriting and political activism workshop with the award-winning activist musicians Pat Humphries and Sandy O from Emma's Revolution!
Want to be like Bob Dylan and Macklemore and rediscover the lost art of activism through music? Interested in discovering how to express an eloquent, yet catchy message? Maybe even with a guitar? Ever wonder what the difference is between a chorus and a verse?
Come to the song-writing workshop with political activists Emma's Revolution. This will be a 90 minute workshop offered during which time Emma and Sandy will guide participants in how to craft and hone their own message, and express themselves through song and verse. A great opportunity for students to directly engage with a form of communication and expression that is not that common, but that can be very powerful!
"Boasting gorgeous close harmonies and unsinkable tunefulness,Emma’s Revolution (the Emma is Goldman) is a classic, globetrotting folk duo comprised of activist singer/songwriters Sandy O. and Pat Humphries. Their music is progressive, socially-conscious, confrontational and shot-through with intelligence and cutting humor; their songs have been sung for the Dalai Lama, covered by Holly Near and they count the great Pete Seeger among their admirers. Newest disc 'Revolutions Per Minute' is a front-to-back gem."~Iowa City Press-Citizen
