Label: G7 Welcoming Committiee
Alt Folk/indie from Winnipeg Manitoba
Tanks are rolling through the streets of a desert town, the 53 year old leader of the free world can run 3 miles in 20 and a half minutes, people are living longer, people are dying by the millions, there are rich and there are poor, some give a damn and some don't. Canadian singer/songwriter Greg MacPherson gives a damn. MacPherson is the new champion of a songwriting tradition stretching back to Woody Guthrie and including voices like Jo Strummer and Bruce Springsteen. Loud, passionate voices saying things about their place in all of this change.
These songs walk an inscrutable line between beauty and determination. A place where the ordinary becomes important and actions bring hope. Songs that capture the imaginations of young and old alike.
