“I’ve always known our political and social movements as singing movements, and have been continually astonished at the scope and variety of our people’s music… These songs are like endangered species that have been restored to the present, to the land of the living. They stuck up for us long ago during dark and troubled times. Our times are dark and troubled, too, but our old songs are still here with us to see us through. Sing away!” —Utah Phillips
