Covid-19 is dangerously impacting the social-economic category of musicians. No concerts, poor political and social consideration, uncertain earnings. As a consequence, an ever-growing number of musicians, especially those from the experimental area, are trying to promote their music on BandCamp in digital format only. It is increasingly difficult for me to follow and review this incredible flow of music. I therefore decided to open this section on my blog Neuguitars where I propose music in digital format that I consider particularly interesting and worthy of attention. I hope you like it. Let’s support musicians. They need it.
Protest Songs by Mike Cooper, BandCamp, 2020 on #neuguitars #blog
Back in another parrallel lifetime, century, planet maybe, I sang songs in front of people, often with just an acoustic guitar. These are some of the songs that I love to sing. They were all recorded live even if there was no audience at the time, and recorded in different locations and at different times, some years apart, on different devices. So this is time travelling as well. Call them Folk Songs maybe? They are all protest songs as are most of the songs that I sing…and would still..in the right time and place.
