Emma's Revolution
Smart, funny and informative--like Rachel Maddow and Jon Stewart with guitars. Emma's Revolution is the duo of Washington-DC-based, award-winning activist songwriters and musicians, Pat Humphries & Sandy O. A motivating force in concerts and demonstrations, Emma's Revolution's songs have been sung for the Dalai Lama, praised by Pete Seeger and recorded by Holly Near. The duo's awards include Grand Prize in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest and, for two years in a row, the Washington Area Music Association's Fan Favorite Award. Emma's Revolution's songs have been an integral part of justice movements for 30 years and the duo tours 200 days a year, bringing their uprising of truth, hope and a dash of irreverence to thousands of events across the US and abroad.

Pete Seeger was a friend and mentor to Emma's Revolution, and especially to Pat. In an NPR "All Things Considered" feature on Pat's song,"Swimming to the Other Side," Pete said, "The powers that be can control the media, but it's hard to stop a good song . . . Pat's songs will be sung well into the 22nd century." Pat was with the Seeger family and a small group of friends when Pete passed, singing him home to Toshi. Emma's Revolution later wrote their song Sing People Sing in tribute to Pete. It is an honor--and a powerful responsibility--to be part of the many who will carry on Pete and Toshi's work for peace and justice through music.
