Finding Our Voice Founder Coming to Albuquerque

In this age of upheaval, music is as important an agent of change as ever. Yet so much of our songbook harkens back to bygone days and fewer and fewer of us know the old songs that used to unify and galvanize our spirits.  -Josh Blaine
Josh Blaine is traveling the country to find musicians and artists/creators to contribute to a series of podcasts for a project entitled  "Finding Our Voice."

He is seeking a special kind of musician, one who is writing, reviving and promoting both protest songs and sing-alongs. Each podcast will generally include interviews with musicians about their inspirations, passions and processes; intimate acoustic performances of one or a few of their tunesl and information about a relevant issue and/or organization for followers to support. Here is his pitch on YouTube.

Blaine plans to stop in New Mexico on Aug. 10-16, including a Community Sing Along at St. Thomas of Canterbury Episcopal Church in Albuquerque on Sunday, Aug. 13, 3:00-5:00 p.m. This event will feature opportunities to teach and learn songs we can sing together, as well as songs that have a message to uplift and inspire. There will also be opportunities to connect with and support a local organization doing good work in the community. 

Musicians who'd like to share or teach a song (or three!) at the event are encouraged to reach out at

The hosts at St. Thomas of Canterbury invite you to stay for their church potluck at 5:00 p.m. RSVP via Facebook event
