ART LIVES ON, in episode #4 of this musical series!
Sunday, April 22, 2018 is Earth Day this year. A bit of the history of Earth Day may be found HERE.
The preservation of the quality and availability of water is critical for health and for the survival of life on our planet.
Drinking water is one of those things that many people in the United States take for granted. One of the amazing things I love about the people in the Great Lakes region is that they have an acute sense of the value of clean water – likely instilled by their love of the Lakes upon which they live. However, it’s that very abundance of water that makes people in this region wonder why water conservation should be an issue. In actuality, water conservation and Great Lakes restoration go hand in hand; the less water we take out of the Great Lakes and consume, the more there is to support this amazing ecosystem. The Lakes are at some of the lowest levels in decades. Every drop counts.
I’m back to present the 3rd installment of his collection of original music, Art Lives On!
In February 2014, I set out to write an Irish song, in 12/8 rhythm, in anticipation of St. Patrick’s Day.
The first challenge was mastering the spelling of “Shillelagh.” Thanks to my daughter for the cellphone footage of the jumping jacks. The lyrics are fanciful and portray a fictional character created for the song. The reference to Old Bailey required a bit of poetic license.
“The Old Bailey, also known as Justice Hall, the Sessions House, and the Central Criminal Court, was named after the street in which it was located, just off Newgate Street and next to Newgate Prison, in the western part of the City of London.”

“Disinformation” is defined by the Merriam-Webster.com dictionary as “false information deliberately and often covertly spread (as by the planting of rumors) in order to influence public opinion or obscure the truth.” The song explores this word, the first use of which was in 1939.
