ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Up here in Wisconsin, we have a slight governor problem. From across the state, people have come to Madison to stand up for their rights. Some of the most moving protests involved firemen marching with bagpipes and farmers riding their tractors to the capital to support the cause. The Day the Tractors Came to Town commemorates those events. This song was written for our young children who joined us at the rallies in the hope that they will remember these momentous days. It was also written in solidarity with all those who are working tirelessly for the rights of the middle class.

I heard your song tonight on the way home from mass on WPR's folk song program.

My wife and I went to Madison 5 times last Feb. through March. We farm and are members of the Wisconsin Farmers Union. Along with Family Farm Defenders, we helped to organize the tractorcade and fund it, and we personally supported the tractorcade. I am proud to say that our organizations represent the average Wisconsin farmer, not the mega-farms and agribusiness. That is why we found identity with the hundreds of thousands who protested. We stand for the common man and not for narrow partisanship and subsidies for the super-rich.

It is a great song with moving rhythm and powerful lyrics.
