ABOUT EMMA’S REVOLUTION

Smart, funny, informative -- like Rachel Maddow and Jon Stewart with guitars. emma’s revolution is the, award-winning, activist musicians Pat Humphries & Sandy O.

DOANE PERRY (drummer for Jethro Tull and
emma's revolution cdsroots, rock & revolution” & “RPM”): "I consider myself very fortunate to have had the great pleasure and 
honor of working with Pat and Sandy over the last few years. Their music is natural 
and organic and their innate artistic sensibility has the power to communicate 
with intelligence, wit, grace, subtlety and humor."

Their songs have been sung for the Dalai Lama, praised by Pete Seeger and recorded by Holly Near. “Peace, Salaam, Shalom” is sung around the world and has been called the anthem of the anti-war movement. “If I Give Your Name” won Grand Prize in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest and the band's music has been featured on NPR's “All Things Considered” and Pacifica's “Democracy Now!”

RICH WARREN, Folk DJ (Midnight Special and Folk Stage): “…dynamic performance with a social conscience, they continue proving that great topical and protest music is very much alive.”

In the spirit of Emma Goldman's famous attribution, “If I can't dance, I don't want to be part of your revolution,” emma's revolution brings their uprising of truth, hope, groove and humor to concert halls and peace & justice events environmental, labor, human rights, LGBT and women's rights events.
