ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Does music really make a difference in the world?

We'd like to think so. Public Domain Foundation has spent more than 30 years and almost 2 million dollars supporting children and family service organizations, domestically and abroad, through the royalties of just one composition, "The Wedding Song."

Our fourth Music to Life (MTL) awards and concert program once again presents a collection of unpublished compositions dedicated to social and political concerns.

These 10 songs were screened from over 200 entries by an esteemed panel of well established folk singers/songwriters including: Tom Chapin, Janis Ian, Tom Paxton, Judy Collins, Holly Near, Len Chandler, Christine Lavin, John Stewart, Peter Yarrow, Noel Paul Stookey, Cheryl Wheeler, and Mary Travers.

Finalists shared their original songs at the MTL concert at the Kerrville Folk Festival on May 31, 2008.
