Bounded by Silence: Songs of Change – Tampa 2019
A song is a nearly perfect vehicle for putting yourself in someone else’s shoes.
For three or four minutes, you can freely feel what it would be like to see and experience the world we from someone else’s perspective. In a very brief encounter, you can be changed, take a step toward transformation, be surprised into a new awareness of your life and the lives of others.
Bounded by silence, ephemeral as vibrations in the air, a song can be a powerful vehicle for creating empathy, engendering compassion, and an opportunity for emotional knowing. It can be one of our most important tools for building a compassionate and responsibly free society.
As a traditional Blues musician, scholar, and songwriter, Scott Ainslie explores these themes in a keynote address-performance at the Positive Music Festival in Tampa, FL, March 2019.
