An funny, romantic, enviro, political 24/7 folk music concert.
*JOHN KERRY VS GEORGE W BUSH ONLINE CONCERT* www.greenvibe.org
This is a rousing, online 24/7 election-music concert to reward those working to get out the vote, and to motivate others to get involved. This *KERRY VS BUSH CONCERT* includes funny, romantic, folky political tunes from various musicians - such as David Rovics, the Therapy Sisters, Dave Lippman and Stele Ely.
The first of 35 songs is "Big Green Diff" and is sung by kids, squids, and other animals that point out the crucial difference between Kerry and Bush on environmental issues. Because a poor environmental policy hurts our national security, health and the economy, the BIG gap between Kerry and Bush on this issue m-a-g-n-i-f-i-e-s their difference.
VICTORY CONCERT: Our next concert will be the *VICTORY CONCERT* after the election to reward those who have helped get the candidates elected and laws passed that will make for a politically safer and environmentally sound planet. There will be some new musicians in the concert as well as some faves.
TO MY GREEN FRIENDS: In the last four years, I have used my words, money, lifestyle and volunteer work to show thousands of other citizens, our government and millions of other life-forms on our planet that I support the Green platform and that I want Green representation. That's why - now that it's down to the wire here in this swing state of Colorado - I don't feel that I have to use my vote as a device to reiterate my Green life commitment to others and to myself.
Therefore, with an ache in my heart, I will be joining other swing state Greens in the strategy of voting for John Kerry because he has both a great chance of winning and with him the Greens will have a better chance to create a coalition for peace and the planet.
I would love... totally love David Cobb and Patricia LaMarche to be our president and vice president. However, even David Cobb may be thinking this swing state voting strategy is the best idea - see the article on the first page of the votecobb.org website by The Texan newspaper.
Respectfully, Stele Ely www.greenvibe.org

Whether you work with GreenVibe or not, you can always send info on an issue to any of your favorite musicians on your own and request that they compose/perform a song for that issue.
SONGWRITERS: Songwriters are invited to submit their acoustic political and ecological songs through www.greenvibe.org for possible inclusion in our online concerts. If you are a songwriter - whether you submit a song to us or not - composing and performing music to support positive political and/or environmental action is a superb way to help protect our priceless planet.

Gaiacally, Stele Ely
