Dear Friends, Fans & Fellow Music Makers,

Kingdom Come by Joe Peters

Everybody's waiting when it's all said and done
Everybody's waiting on their kingdom come
Everybody's hating on their fellow man
Everybody's hating it's the law of the land

They're coming for your freedom
They're coming from within
They're coming for your freedom
Don't you let them win
They’ll promise you the kingdom
They’ll promise you the world
They’ll promise you the kingdom
While they steal your pearl

We've fallen from the garden
We've eaten from the tree
We've fallen from the garden
Of the Adam and the Eve
We're drowning in the water
We're running out of air
We’re drowning in the water
Nobody seem to care

Everybody's waiting when it's all said and done
Everybody's waiting for their favorite son
Everybody's baking in the heat of the sun
Everybody's waiting for their kingdom come

Everybody's waiting for their kingdom come
Everybody's waiting for their kingdom come
Everybody's waiting for their kingdom come

We'd LOVE to have you in this Wednesday evening's live Zoom concert with Joe Peters!

[Joe Peters is READY to play for and talk with us!]

As the Greencastle Virtual Music Festival is wrapping up its "only virtual" phase, singer/songwriter Joe Peters is performing a live concert for us from his home in California for us this Wednesday (April 28) at 7:30pm EDT at link.

Joe's a fantastic musician, a world-travelling, multi-lingual PhD who is a prolific songwriter with a dozen albums, and was based in central Indiana until very recently. Many of you will remember his summer performances in Gobin, and also our "Bach and Barbecue" shows from years ago at "Chief's" restaurant in Greencastle (which I miss!). (Read more about Joe below.)

He's one of the most gifted, intelligent, and fascinating people I know. What an opportunity to have an evening of music and conversation with him!

The ability to have good video and really good sound over Zoom, drawing on the ability for performers and audience members to interact in real time, has only developed over the last few months. It's a great example of "covid creativity" -- Zoom and other platforms increasing their capabilities for professional music performances, and musicians like Joe (and me) upgrading our own equipment and learning the audio engineering skills needed to make it work!

It would be GREAT to have as many people a possible join us for this interactive event--which might be our last live-stream Zoom concert of the spring.

More about Joe Peters:

I am a self-made, singer-songwriter who has released over a dozen CDs of original songs since 1998, as well as other compilations of Americana and Celtic music. I grew up in the American Midwest during the 1960s and 70s, and my songs hearken back to a time when the youth of the planet sought the experience of peace, love and adventure and expressed this search in their music.

Through my own music, I have tried to rekindle in others that spark of the seeker of truth on a spiritual journey that was awakened in me long ago by the songs of introspective songwriters and recording artists.

Prior to embarking on a full-time career in music, I earned three academic degrees, served for two years in the link. Peace Corps in Ecuador, conducted link. research on national parks in Madagascar, taught natural resources management at Grand Valley State University, and obtained Fulbright grants for research and teaching in Vietnam and Cambodia. I spent many years studying, traveling and working overseas, returning to the link. in 2006 to care for my aging parents. My nature-based background, my study of Eastern philosophies and my scientific bent all inform my songwriting.

I am former president of the Songwriters Association of Midnorth Indiana (SAMI). My music has been frequently featured on folk radio stations around the nation and abroad, both broadcast and online. My song, Sail Away won the first Blooming-Tunes songwriting contest in 2009 (Bloomington, Indiana). My original musical slide show, Root of the Matter, is featured on the website of Catholic Relief Services, with support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

Insurrection in the Capitol 1-6-21 By Joe Peters

We watched it all, on the TV screen
They climbed the steps, & breached the halls
Then he came on, & poured gasoline
They broke in windows, & scaled the walls

Everywhere, I saw the flag
Waving high, above the crowd
They wore the hat, but not the mask
They all high-fived, & strutted proud

The day they stormed the capitol, a day of infamy
Democracy under attack, for all the world to see
The mob that stormed the capitol, did his bidding full of hate
They occupied DC today, In America the Great

They chose the man, over Truth
Now blood’s been spilled, up on the Hill
They believed Fake News, and the Twitter too
They tried their best, to trump the people’s will

Today they stormed the capitol, a day of infamy
Democracy under attack, for all the world to see
The mob that stormed the capitol, did his bidding full of hate
They occupied DC today, In America the Great
Insurrection in the capitol, in America the Great

Dear Friends,

2020, what a year!

The new double album, Collaboration, Music by Warriors, Zombies & Other JoeDai Pilgrims is initially available here, on Bandcamp. Soon it will be available through all the usual platforms, like Spotify, iTunes, Amazon, CDBaby and so forth.

link

After working on this pandemic opus, Collaboration, throughout the year, the collection of songs seemed to require some form of explanation, and for a songwriter what better way than to put it in song!? So at the end of the process I wrote this little ditty, COVID Collabs, to look back on the year in relation to not only the pandemic, but also the evolution of these songs.

I am sure you will all take the time to reflect on the year in your own ways, the joys and the many sorrows. Happy New Year planet earth & inhabitants. Let's Collaborate for a kinder, gentler world, and happiness for all.

Here's to a hopeful 2021!

Joe

COVID Collabs By Joe Peters, October 2020

Broke my toe in January, turned too old in February
Along came March and blew us all away

All of April I never went out, May rolled in and left no doubt
By June this thing had simply runaway

Then friends sent lyrics and poems and things
I grabbed my guitar and plucked the strings
Before too long these songs found wings

So I bought some gear and learned to use it
Made two-track demos that sounded like sh..
A magic man turned them into hits

We searched for singers in mid-July, by the end of August they had multiplied
In late September it all came together

Throughout October we mixed and matched, November made sure these babies hatched
Come December they were smooth as Spanish leather

Thank you COVID for collaboration, from one end to the other of this mighty nation
There’s strength in numbers we shall overcome
