Happy Thanksgiving!

| Comments Off on Happy Thanksgiving!

Oh a turkey knocked at my back door, and I invited him in
‘Twas a chill October Thursday, so I invited him in

Won’t you come into my kitchen my friend? I’ll boil some water for tea
Come and sit here in my kitchen we’ll chat, have a cookie maybe two or three

He answered no no no no, I won’t come into your kitchen
I said no no no no, I’ll see you another day


| Comments Off on O’Siem

Susan Aglukark is a Canadian singer who blends Inuit folk music traditions with country and pop songwriting. Her most successful song O’Siem is a joyful greeting for family and loved ones, and a call to turn away from racism and prejudice. O’Siem is also a Coast Salish word meaning “a welcoming of honoured guests.” Aglukark has spent her lifetime promoting inclusivity and acceptance.

O’Siem, we are all family
O’Siem, we’re all the same
O’Siem, the fires of freedom
Dance in the burning flame

Siem o siyeya, all people rich and poor
Siem o siyeya, those who do and do not know
Siem o siyeya, take the hand of one close by
Siem o siyeya, of those who know because they try
And watch the walls come tumbling down

Siem o siyeya, all people of the world
Siem o siyeya, it′s time to make the turn
Siem o siyeya, a chance to share your heart
Siem o siyeya, to make a brand new start
And watch the walls come tumbling down

Fires burn in silence
Hearts in anger bleed
Wheel of change is turning
For the ones who truly need
To see the walls come tumbling down

Earth Day

| Comments Off on Earth Day

Earth Day is celebrated annually on April 22. It was founded in 1970 as a day of education about environmental issues, and now more than 1 billion people from 192 countries participate in Earth Day activities!

The theme for the worldwide event this year is Restore Our Earth, which focuses on natural processes, emerging green technologies, and innovative thinking that can restore the world’s ecosystems. It is up to each and every one of us to Restore Our Earth not just because we care about the natural world, but because we live on it. We all need a healthy Earth.

The song This Pretty Planet was once used to wake up astronauts aboard the Space Shuttle. This arrangement is sung first in unison, and then in a 3 part canon. Sing and play along on ukulele or recorder!
