Songs of Hope continued

In times of change and seasons of uncertainty, musicians who write their own songs and interpret music from the tradition often have some of the best wisdom to offer and most thought provoking questions to ask. Continuing this series of articles pointing to songs and artists you may want to know in light of these ideas, here are Tish Hinojosa with an original song and Emily Smith with words of a poet from the past set to a new melody.

In Spanish and English, Tish Hinojosa offers what could be an anthem for hope and unity. She has recorded this song, Bandera del Sol, on her album Culture Swing.

On a quieter note, Emily Smith and Jamie McLennan have put the words of poet Thomas Carlyle to melody. The Sower's Song is recorded on Emily's album Echoes.
