Vic Sadot has been recording songs for a new CD that will likely be named for his song in support of Bradley Manning, “Courage To Resist”. Other titles that we need to get out on an official CD release would be “No Nuke Blues” with a new Fukushima verse; “An Act of State: The Execution of Martin Luther King”, based on the book by the same title by William Pepper, the King family lawyer who won a unanimous trial victory in Memphis in 1999; “Selling Futures”; “The Kidnapping Coup”, the story of the 2004 US overthrow of democracy in Haiti, and some love songs like “Harbor of Love”, “Lori”, and “Dearest Lady”. All of these recordings feature the super-talented violin, viola, and ukulele of Eric Golub. Photo by Greg Fernandez.

Tom Paine: American Revolutionary Writer 1737 – 1809
A Celebration of Tom Paine’s 276th Birthday will feature quotations from the key American Revolutionary writer : “Common Sense”, “The Crisis Papers”, “The Rights of Man”, “The Age of Reason”, and letters to friends. Tom Paine’s writings remain acutely relevant, particularly to the Occupy Wall Street and ongoing truth and justice movements. Vic will sing his “Ballad of Tom Paine” which tells Paine’s life story in a style inspired by Phil Ochs’ “Ballad of Joe Hill” and Woody Guthrie’s “Ballad of Tom Joad” (based on Steinbeck’s “The Grapes of Wrath”). This event is co-sponsored by BFUU Social Justice Committee.
