my wife and i just got back from kansas a bit ago and we had a wonderful
time at honor the earth.  the girls were incredible, as usual.  shawn
mullins and indigenous were very good, and i loved the speakers, etc.


setlist:


redemption song (followed by a presentation and winona laduke)


get out the map
jonas & ezekiel
love's recovery
devotion
virginia woolf
reunion
leaving
go
closer to fine
kid fears
power of two
shame on you
galileo


encore with everyone:
bury my heart at wounded knee


indigenous was first, and i had heard that they were good and that their
guitar player was quite good, and that was an understatement.  [...]


i wasn't sure what to expect from shawn mullins, but he was very good, also.
he played solo, just him and an acoustic guitar. [...] he also thanked amy
and emily and told a story about when he first met amy.  she came to his
school for career day and sang romeo and juliet and strange
fire...hehe...said she burned a hole in the room with that one.  much better
than i expected from him.


the girls were incredible!  i've seen them 13 times in the last 3+ years,
and they just seem to get better.  this was the first time i've heard them
do reunion and kid fears, and only the second time for jonas & ezekiel.  the
high points of the evening were j&e, one of my favorite songs, and kid
fears.  shawn came out and took the michael stipe part, plus he sang my
favorite lines- "replace the rent.......the ones that you love."  it was by
far my favorite song of the evening.  i had tears in my eyes at the end,
when amy and emily were singing their parts, and shawn singing
his.....unbelievable.  it's moments like that, that fill me with wonder and
awe at what some people can do with their lives....their art.  i don't know
what else to say.....beyond words.  the crowd was sitting most of the night,
but that all changed when emily started closer to fine.  it cracks me up
that that song will bring everyone to their feet, singing, every damn time
they play it.  same thing with galileo.  for the encore, everyone came out
and played bury my heart.  indigenous' guitar player kicked ass;  emily
watched him approvingly during his two solos.  he also sang the verse that
jerry sang on curfews.  it was kind of weird how everyone was enjoying
themselves so much during such a disturbing song, but the artists were
having a blast on stage, too, so i guess it's okay...hehe.


all in all, it was an incredible evening.  [...]


love and peace,
dan
