Routes and Branches Play List 11/20/10

I had social justice activist and songwriter Patrick Dodd into the KRVM studio this afternoon. Following in the footsteps of Woody Guthrie, Dodd writes modern day folk tunes that relate to current events and social issues like his tunes "Patriot Act Blues" and "Call Me A Tree Hugger". Like Guthrie, Dodd is more interested in people hearing his music than making a dollar from it and has all of his music available for free download from his website:

Patrick Dodd is in town tonight as part of an annual fundraiser for the Civil Liberties Defense Center. The Civil Liberties Defense Center has represented over 300 social justice activists for free including Dodd's daughter who was protesting a timber sale in southern Oregon. They also hold "Know your rights" training workshops in our community. You can find more information about the CLDC at their website:

On a final note I opened and closed the show this week with the Lewi Longmire Band. I took My wife up to Portland to see Lewi's regular Thursday night gig at the Laurelthirst Public House on her birthday this year and we are planning to catch Lewi's Thanksgiving show this coming Wednesday to celebrate my birthday. Sounds like Our Kind Of Music.
