Earth Day 2021
When Jeff Poniewaz and Antler created the Earth Poets in 1988, they knew the mortal coil was becoming more mortal, spring more silent, extreme weather more prevalent, and that climate change warnings were mostly unheard or denied. They didn’t know that more than thirty years later The Earth Poets and Musicians would still be here with wisps of wisdom and humor, drumming, humming, singing, dancing, rhyming, and worrying. Did any of us realize how much the world would transform over those 30 plus years? Unfortunately both the scientists and the science fiction writers were right. Climate change is creating daily catastrophes worldwide. And technology is having unforeseen affects on everyone’s lives as it enables dictators and disables democracies, turns robots into people, and people into robots, turns lies into truth and truth into lies. We have plenty to think about, to sing about, to rhyme about, to figure out; we have an amazing planet to save.
For their 33rd Anniversary Performances, three of the original poets, Louisa Loveridge-Gallas, Suzanne Rosenblatt, and Harvey Taylor, and the two musician members of the group, Jahmes Finlayson and Holly Haebig Wake will continue to transform inconvenient truths into conscientious action. This Earth Day performance will benefit The Milwaukee River Advocates Co-op. You can find more about them at their web address: http://milwaukeeriveradvocates.org/
