REMINDER – LOCAL EVENT THIS COMING MONDAY!
Join GJEP for our next local event Monday April 6th at 7pm co-sponsored by Witness for Peace:
ECHOES OF SILENCE
Peace. Justice. Beauty. One Planet. One People.
Songs of Courage
Paul Baker Hernández
While a silent Trappist monk, Paul secretly cobbled together a guitar
from various scraps. The result inspired him to “become another Bob Dylan. Only quieter.”
Paul’s talented flamenco guitar playing accompanies traditional US and Latin American songs of struggle, as well as Scottish traditional ballads. His ‘Ode to Starbucks’ and other songs inspire laughter.
After living with Salvadoran exiles in Los Angeles to help ward off death squads, Paul moved to a shanty town in Managua, Nicaragua, one of the world’s most-impoverished countries. There he works with grassroots projects to roll back global warming, and coordinates Water Not War, a hope-filled response to the global economic/ecological crisis.
The tour will raise awareness, money and other support for these vital programs.Over the years, Paul has sung with Inti Illimani and Joan Jara, Carlos Mejia Godoy, Jackson Browne and Martin Sheen; and for Britain’s largest-ever crowd, (including the Pope!).
Paul will be performing in Hinesburg on Monday, April 6. The evening will begin with a potluck at 6pm at the GJEP office followed by the performance at 7pm next door at the Hinesburg Town Hall (10632 VT Route 116 – at the Charlotte Road / Route 116 intersection).
