As it turns out, cast members from The Great Comet are amazing songwriters! The brilliant Solomon Hoffman arranged some of their songs for The Songwriter's Orchestra and it sounds amazing. I'm playing cajon, cymbals, triangle, tambourine, and A LOT of shaker on this one. Come through!
I got to try our my new cajon with the Songwriter's Orchestra this weekend. Really well-curated program with a political bend.
I am participating in two great concerts Sunday and Monday with the Songwriter's Orchestra in collaboration with Herstory Writers Workshop. Chains Don't Rattle Themselves - Concert for Youth Justice is "an emotionally-charged concert that shares gripping stories about youth incarceration -- first as personal narratives presented by people directly affected by the issue, and then as raw, potent original songs adapted from the stories themselves. Chains Don’t Rattle Themselves seeks to break through barriers of judgment and mobilize audiences to take direct action supporting the Raise The Age NY campaign for youth criminal justice reform in New York State."
