“Following the wave of suicides of young people who have been bullied and the links between hate speech and the tragic Jan. 8 shooting in Tucson, an Owasso church dedicated to social justice and peace is teaming with an internationally-known folk music group to work on solutions.

Emma’s Revolution members Pat Humphries and Sandy O bring a sense of humor and hope to their music. They are inspired by Pete Seeger and others as they continue the legacy of music for social change. The award-winning folksingers from the Washington, DC area have toured internationally. The concert is a benefit for Open Table UCC in Owasso, a new open and affirming community of faith.

Pat Humphries and Sandy O use the power of music to promote peace and justice, the environment, human rights, and women’s and LGBTQ issues. They will lead a discussion and workshop on how to advocate for change without resorting to violence. Tulsa area experts from the following organizations will join them to describe their efforts to work for change in such areas as bullying prevention, local food insecurity and community development in North Tulsa:

A Third Place Community Foundation
Children’s Consortium of Tulsa
Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma
Community of Hope United Church of Christ
Fellowship Congregational Church
Oklahomans for Equality
Open Table United Church of Christ
Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays-Tulsa
United Campus Ministries at the University of Tulsa.”

If peace, justice and equality are part of your core values … and, if you enjoy well-written songs, guitars and voices singing in harmony … and, if you’d like to hear some live music and love every minute of it … Emma’s Revolution is a group you’ll want to hear.

.

Pat Humphries and Sandy O. are Emma’s Revolution. They work tirelessly for peace, justice and equality. They write and sing songs about how we can change our world. I think I could hear one of their shows every week and not grow tired of it. They’re that good.

.

They have a website with the same name as the duo, Emma’s Revolution. Soon, they’ll be listed on eFolkMusic, and you’ll be able to go there to purchase their music and keep up with their performance schedule. They also have a myspace page with a lot of interesting information about the band.

If you don’t do anything else today, check out their websites and get on their mailing list. Be sure to see their show the next time they are in your town. You’ll be glad you did.

Yes, I do like Emma’s Revolution!
