With thanks once again to Kevin Duncan for producing and playing on this latest album and thanks to all at Ginger Dog Records and Kevin Mayhew Publishing.
Big thanks for all musicians who played and sang on this – and for the skills and fun that you brought.
The song “Forgiveness for Humanity” contains climate justice lyrics written by our son Ben – thank you.
And to Joe, another son! – for help with lyrics on “Easter prayer” and for the little story on “Oscar Romero”- thank you.
Thanks to my PA Isobel for organising this latest project on behalf of the Garth Hewitt Foundation, also for putting together the pictures and copy for the “Easter Revolution” Booklet. This Booklet will be available soon after the release of “Easter Revolution”CD – it gives more information of the thinking that influenced the song lyrics.
Thanks to Abbie Goldberg for layout and design.
