SSG008 Regenerative Culture and the Slow Music Movement-with Leah Song of Rising Appalachia

For Episode number 8 we are joined by Leah Song, one half of the douo at the front of the musical activist band Rising Appalachia. Rising Appalachia brings to the stage a collection of sounds, stories, and songs steeped in tradition and a devotion to world culture. Intertwining a deep reverence for folk music and a passion for justice, they have made it their life’s work to sing songs that speak to something ancient yet surging with relevance. In this episode we explore:

• Music as activism and the Slow Music Movement
• Weaving Threads of Change and mining for goodness
• Urban farming and sharing skills that empower us in creating regenerative culture
