Musical activists perform in Solana Beach

Pat Humphries and Sandy O of “emma’s revolution”

“emma’s revolution” is the duo of activist musicians, Pat Humphries and Sandy O. What a joy and privilege it was for the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of San Dieguito (1036 Solana Drive in Solana Beach) to host Pat and Sandy. They sang to a capacity audience of more than 130 people at the UUFSD on March 25. Emma’s Revolution creates new standards in the art of social justice. Their songs have been sung for the Dalai Lama, praised by Pete Seeger and recorded by Holly Near. Among the highlights of the evening were their performances of “Peace, Salaam, Shalom,” UU favorite “Swimming to the Other Side,” and “Keep on Moving Forward,” which the church’s choir had sung just the Sunday before. They also played new songs they had written in tribute to the protesters in Madison, Wisc., and in recognition of the impact of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

In the spirit of Emma Goldman’s famous attribution, “If I can’t dance, I don’t want to be part of your revolution,” emma’s revolution brings their uprising of truth, hope and a dash of healthy irreverence to concerts and peace & justice, labor, human rights, environmental, LGBT and women’s rights events around the world.
