I've been waiting to hear from more than just the wonderful artists who've been creating the many variations on the #IdleNoMore theme.
And now there's this first compilation of songs "Idle No More: Songs for Life Vol. 1" of free for downloading songs.
From The Johnnys" website..
"...The Johnnys are a high-energy rock’n’roll group founded by singer/guitarist Veronica Johnny and drummer Dave Johnny. Since their beginning in the Canadian sub-arctic, The Johnnys have achieved national prominence through television, film and live performances – legendary for their pace and sweaty, leather-clad mayhem. The band’s albums, I Like It A Lot and Louder Faster More Fun, were both nominated for national awards in the Best Rock CD category...."
"My people will sleep for one hundred years, but when they awake, it will be the artists who give them their spirit back."~ Louis Riel, July 4, 1885.
Thank you for reading this story...
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
