During three days in May 2018, Peter Yarrow of Peter, Paul, & Mary brought a cadre of over a dozen polished and prominent songwriters- Keith Secola https://www.secola.com/, David Broza http://davidbroza.net , Britt Baker-Soleil https://soundcloud.com/britt-baker-4, Alison Lewis https://www.alisonlewismusic.com/, Dr. Lauren Speeth elfenworks.org/, Kevin Salem https://www.kevinsalem.com, Steve Seskin www.steveseskin.com/, Bethany Yarrow & Rufus Cappadocia www.bethanyandrufus.com/, Matt Takiff https://www.matttakiff.com/, and The Peace Poets http://www.thepeacepoets.com/ – Luke Nephew and Enmanuel Candelaria- to Parkland (3 SONGS)- to talk and sing songs with MSD students and friends about Civil Rights, Activism, Love, Togetherness, & Hope.
During two of those evenings, the songwriters and dozens of Majory Stoneman Douglas Students split off into groups and emerged the second night having written 11 songs- real songs. The artists and students then went into the studio to record these songs in mid-August and the album that emanated out of everyone’s efforts- all donated to the Parkland Strong cause- is debuting at Actions For Change- Parkland on September 30th
