Thanks, Lloyd for posting. I will be part of this festival in my usual capacity. The venue is fantastic- on the river but on the East side of town (Mexican American Cultural Center and park)

After discussions with the promoter, I think, if successful, this could easily grow into a three day festival much like SNWMF. It is exciting to watch and participate in it's birth.

No, ok Fred- not hired by anyone to promote anything except for some photography gigs. I did however work on marketing for Songs of Redemption because years working on the side with two federal prisons in the US made me very excited about the use of music for rehabilitation. Attending the private screening in Kingston where I was able to meet some of the prisoners who appeared in the movie, gave me additional passion to see this movie, to be seen not just by reggae or music enthusiasts but to expand its scope to legislators, prison officials in the US, criminology professors, etc. I am super jazzed in addition to helping capture promotional photographs, etc. Nando, the Executive Producer is also inspirational.

Thanks for asking about my role with what I post so I can make sure everyone is clear on my intentions. I have been waiting for a very long time for serious discussion of Rastafari, conscious reggae music, societal revolution for many of the topics that are now surfacing nearly in perfect alignment. I am an old social activist...yes old by most standards...63, in fact and can't help but LOVE to see and hear the slumber be broken and the revolutionary voices come alive by old and young alike. I believe that the arts are one vessel that not only document social change but also influence the way people think resulting in possible improved futures.

I hope you will be just as interested. loved your comment on the Coral Gardens March.
