Viet Nam Traveling Wall, State College PA
October 5 @ 8:00 pm - October 7 @ 12:00 pm
I’m honored to be invited to work with the good people and producers at WPSU as they gather material, musicians, vets, and civilians, to look at the history of conflict and the healing of the wounds caused by war, and particularly the war in Viet Nam.
My song “Rice Grows Again In Vietnam” has drawn us together. I’ll be singing and talking about it, new songs for the veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan, and listening to the conversations.
We’ll have a VIP reception on Thursday, an Education Day on Friday with high school students as part of their orientation to visiting the Wall, and we’ll have veterans on Saturday and Sunday, the exhibit will close. I’ll be there through Saturday midday, then head up to Harrisburg for a concert at the Mansion with Tim Alexander’s folks.
This will be a remarkable time. It is my honor to be invited.
