Food for the Soul: Music!
Broadcast on 2017/10/03 (PT)
Libby Roderick, American Singer, songwriter, recording artist, poet, activist and teacher
Phew – and she IS all that! For so many of us, music is our happy place, our healing place, our place that can feed our souls, calm us down, make us think, make us nostalgic. Well, Libby Roderick’s songs do all of those things for me. At a very low and exhausting part of my life earlier this year, I went to a workshop hosted by the Center for Compassion at the University of Arizona. The person conducting the workshop, Kathleen Dean Moore, was amazing and played the song Cradle of Dawn by Libby Roderick. I was hooked and have been listening to her environmentally and socially conscious songs every single day since. The surprising power and depth of her music and the humor and spontaneity of her performances have attracted large and enthusiastic audiences across the continent and all over the world. This show made possible due to the generous support of The Fairfax Companies.
