Cameron Blake: Alone on the World Stage

CoverWriting about current events without coming off cliché, preachy or cynical is a tricky business. During the struggle for civil rights and the protests against Vietnam, the adaptability of the folk genre to political statement came about naturally as masses of young people organized protests and sang songs by the songwriters who voiced their discontent.

Cameron Blake’s latest offering, Alone On The World Stage accepts the challenge and succeeds with empathy, intelligence and poetic power... [click here...]
