benefit concert starts drive against death penalty


by jay orr / tennessean staff writer


music seldom has to carry such a grim and heavy weight as it did monday
night in the concert kicking off journey of hope: from violence to
reconciliation, a statewide initiative in opposition to the death penalty.


"sometimes, we need music to take us into parts of our hearts we don't even
know we have," said sister helen prejean, introduced by host steve earle as
"the spiritual leader of the death penalty abolition movement in this
country."


prejean credited the evening's performers, earle, the indigo girls, jackson
browne and emmylou harris, as "molders of the human spirit, firing us with
a new imagination."


earle himself wasted no time getting the real issue of the evening out
before the capacity crowd at the ryman auditorium, opening with ellis unit
one, a song he wrote from the perspective of a death row prison guard for
the soundtrack to the movie dead man walking.


"when you bought your ticket tonight, you became activists against the
death penalty in tennessee," earle told the ryman audience. he closed his
performance with a new song, over yonder, in which a condemned prisoner
sees his death as a sad but certain freedom.


playing live for the first time in a while, amy ray and emily saliers, the
indigo girls, included some new material in their set.


among the new tunes they previewed were cold fear and remote control and a
slashing, angry song probing the moral questions surrounding the execution
last year in texas of karla faye tucker. earle joined them for shame on
you, playing harmonica on a song the artists recorded together.


the evening's emotional peak came when prejean, author of the book that
inspired dead man walking, gave an impassioned and frequently humorous
speech against the death penalty, calling for "a new day and a new spirit"
of reconciliation and forgiveness.


she ended by inviting family members of death row inmates and murder
victims to come to the stage and state their names and the name of their
loved one. when they had finished, a semi-circle of 13 stood on the stage
with prejean in a powerful display of the human side of the issue.


the evening also included moments of levity and affirmation. country music
favorites terri clark and natalie maines of the dixie chicks joined the
indigo girls for a performance of their set-closing favorite, closer to fine.


jackson browne tried in vain (and for too long) to wrestle a guitar into
tune, only to give in and play the piano instead on alive in the world, and
jimmie fadden of the nitty gritty dirt band joined him for world in motion.


all the performers seemed to take special care to match their repertoires
to the mood of the evening, but emmylou harris, assisted by buddy and julie
miller and bassist byron house, found special ways to add meaning to
favorites such as one of these days, love hurts, gillian welch's orphan
girl and ralph stanley's green pastures.


the three-hour concert ended with a group performance of the old leadbelly
tune, irene goodnight, a folk favorite with political activists for
generations.


sponsored by the tennessee coalition to abolish state killing, the concert
was billed as "the concert for healing and reconciliation."


the fund-raiser kicks off a two-week circuit of the state, with stops in
nashville, memphis, knoxville and chattanooga. a march and rally takes
place at 11:30 a.m. april 23 at war memorial plaza.
