Today’s episode takes us on a journey of awakening through songs that express the walls and battles we all have to overcome either by ourselves or collectively as a community.

SET: 01

Starting us off on the Long Road to awakening is Minnesota-based musician, singer and songwriter Chastity Brown with the soulful bluesy roots rock title song to her 2014 album “Long Way”. Our journey begins by revisiting the past where experience and memory can well up over each mile travelled back in time…it’s a long way, but a necessary journey to help clarify life going forward.

Following Chastity Brown is UK legend Eric Burdon with “27 Forever” taken from his 2013 album “Til Your River Runs Dry” A conscious conversation with ones self looking back in time with what would have been if we had taken the other path at the fork in the road. Eric Burdon bares his soul in 27 Forever.

Detroit’s own, Michael on Fire follows with “Cadillac Beach” taken from his 2014 album “The Artist, the Dreamer. The Lover and the Fool”.

Cadillac Beach, is beautifully expressed through poetic lyric and soothing acoustic guitar reminding us to appreciate life because it can change in an instant and leave us with unforgettable, painful moments. Wise words to remember when running around at 200 miles an hour trying to check off all the things on an endless to do list. Don’t miss out on what’s really important…

Burlap to Cashmere closes the set with the title track to their 1998 album “Anybody Out There” an empathic song of reflection and awakening as one finds themselves alone in searching for answers to life. A powerful moment on our long road.

And so, we begin a mindful journey to overcome the hurdles of life on the road to clarity, and all through the best music of today, on the minstral show.

SET: 02

Chris de Burgh starts off the second set with “Waiting for the hurricane” taken from his 2012 album “Home”

“Waiting for the hurricane” is a robust, energetic filled song that lifts the adrenalin levels, much the same way his classic tune, “Don’t pay the Ferryman” does. The energy and flow reminds us that, sometimes in life, there’s no escaping the storms that come our way, and so the best thing to do is brace yourself and stand up for what’s to come.

Following Chris de Burgh is Steve Hackett with the title track to his 2015 album “Wolflight”

“Wolflight” is a song that tells of community’s endless fight for survival from sinister forces while trying to preserve our existence. We stand our ground and fight back for our very survival…and its at this point where the awakening grows exponentially…a great tune by Steve Hackett and band.

Following Steve Hackett is “Different Light” from the Czech Republic with “In Love and War” taken from their 2016 Album “The Burden of Paradise” The song takes us through the aftermath of battles fought and down the emotional road that is left in their wake, to confront, the memories that have become scars in the game of love and war.

And so, we brace for the hurricanes that descend onto us in life and battle enemy forces to win our freedom, on the Minstral show.

SET: 03

Leading off the third set is Matthew Perryman Jones with the title track to his 2015 album “Cold Answer”. Poetic lyrics describe feelings of being spiritually grounded, when waking up in the middle of a war and seeing for the first time the cold reality of wars purveyors. Great empathic music by Matthew Perryman Jones

Deep Purple follows with “Blood from a Stone” taken from their 2013 album “Now What!?”

The peoples voice screams out in this song by Deep Purple as the community is always under attack by economic predators that often call themselves our governments. An excellent blues tune that packs a lotta truth.

Dream Theater closes the set with “Our New World” taken from their 2016 album “The Astonishing”

Hope cries out to build a new World, one that’s better and made for all and not just the few. And all we have to do, to make our dreams a reality, is to just go out and make it happen. The world is ours to build, and so freedom awaits in “Our New World”…a great tune to unite people in creating a better world.
