To benefit Piedmont Land Conservancy Wilderness and Space
This song is a stream of consciousness tone poem about dealing with life like a compassionate warrior.
About Piedmont Land Conservancy:
Piedmont Land Conservancy protects our region’s natural lands, farms and waters for present and future generations. PLC connects people with nature. To date, PLC has protected nearly 23,000 acres of North Carolina’s Piedmont.
“Piedmont Land Conservancy is very excited to partner with The Contribution to help raise awareness of the importance of land conservation in North Carolina’s Piedmont, but also throughout our beautiful nation” – Kevin Redding, Executive Director.
Tim Carbone tells Shows I Go To about how the nonprofits were selected, “I put it to the band at large and asked them, ‘What do you feel strongly about?’” LoHi Records labelmate, Jim Brooks, suggested Piedmont Land Conservatory as he has held events to raise money for them in the past.
Brooks says, “When Tim approached me about LoHi releasing The Contribution I loved the idea of combining great music to support great causes. By way of Piedmont Land Conservancy’s annual LandJam concert featuring the very best names in live Americana roots music (this year’s event features Bela Fleck and Abigail Washburn) to further its cause of protecting the Piedmont’s treasured natural spaces, it was a no brainer. I mean, the title, ‘Wilderness and Space,’ couldn’t be a better fit for PLC’s mission and legacy, right? I appreciate Tim inviting PLC to be part of such a unique and worthy musical endeavor.”
