Meeting Report

March 21, 2010

An Hour of Music and Conversation
with Buffy Sainte-Marie

Amy Goodman is the masterful host of Democracy NOW!, while Buffy Sainte-Marie is the highly accomplished Native American musician who gave us such songs as “Universal Soldier” and “Now that the Buffalo’s Gone,” plus “Until It’s Time for You to Go”—a personal favorite. Imagine the experience of watching Ms. Goodman interview Ms. Sainte-Marie!

Well, the twenty of us in attendance at our March 21 meeting didn’t have to imagine it; we enjoyed every electrifying minute of it.

By the way, the sound and video at this meeting were outstanding—a circumstance that greatly enhanced our viewing experience. Kudos are due to Brian Jones and Bill Potts for providing the necessary equipment and expertise to make it so.

Report prepared by Roger Zabkie

The Video Clips section includes a recent performance (not the one from the  Democracy NOW! interview) of “Universal Soldier,” plus an audio version of “Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee” (with a static image of an album cover).
