The Songcircle welcomes our first guest since February, 2020! And it's "returning champion" Wesley Stace, a.k.a. John Wesley Harding, with whom we Zoomed this week to talk about his new compilation released today, The Good Lyre: Songs of John Wesley Harding. The tracklist for the tribute was generated from Facebook contributions by Wes' friends and fans, suggesting artists they'd love to hear cover specific songs of his. The proceeds from the album go to the Sweet Relief Musicians' Fund, to assist musicians who've lost their livelihoods due to the ongoing pandemic. Find it at: https://johnwesleyharding.bandcamp.com/album/the-good-lyre-songs-of-john-wesley-harding [Link will be active as of Friday.]
Then, we salute departed, beloved radical songwriter and organizer Anne Feeney, who passed away in February. She will be memorialized by her friends and peers Saturday, April 3 at noon, Pacific time; register here:
