New Songs From Playing For Change

Playing For Change (Peace Through Music) that puts together the most wonderful music videos combining musicians from all over the world has release a new CD and it’s as great as their first.

There are many familiar faces on the new videos like Grandpa Elliot, Washboard Chaz,¬† and Roger Ridley, but a lot of new faces and locations. Sadly, Roger Ridley who starts of this song and the one that captured the world, “Stand By Me,” died November 16, 2005.

It is my firm belief that with such songs as “Redemption Song” and “One Love” that Bob Marley was truly a Holy Man and prophet.

Playing For Change

If you’ve been following this blog then you are familiar with Playing for Change and its videos. The originators of the Playing for Change movement gathered many of the musicians and they went on tour. This video features Grandpa Elliot from New Orleans and Clarence Bekker from the Netherlands who were such standouts in the Stand by Me video. Unfortunately Roger Ridley, who opened that video passed on in 2005.

This video was shot live in New Orleans. The group will be performing at my favorite music venue, Tipitina’s on July 18th. You’ll have to watch clips of the show when they’re released because, as you can imagine, tickets were sold out minutes after they were put on sale.
