- Hailed by many as heir-apparent to the activist folk tradition of Pete Seeger and Phil Ochs, John has spent the last 30 years immersed in worthy political causes at home and abroad, still finding time to write and perform the stirring music that has become his trademark. Not limited to music of social conscience, he has also been nominated for 5 GRAMMYS for his outstanding children's CDs, and is the reigning master of the hammered dulcimer. The energy that JOHN and band bring to this powerful collection of all-new songs is amazing. Marking several milestones (his 50th birthday, 30 years in music, and his first album on a new label) the songs deliver powerfully concise observations on where we've been, where we are and where we are going! TIM O'BRIEN and Australian KERRIANNE COX make guest appearances and John's gift for weaving astute commentary with crisp song writing and instrumental expertise is manifest throughout the CD. Includes: "Not In My Name," "Extend a Hand," Children of Abraham" and "Ghosts of the Good Old Days."
