Audience Moved to Tears at Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival

Amalia along with 10 talented young  musicians from around the country  came together last Sunday to Debut their new album in front of Thousands at Hardly Strictly Bluegrass.  Here is MIke Kappus review of the concert.  "The most moving set I've ever seen over 18 years of San Francisco's wonderful Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival was this Sunday by the students who participated in the Little Village Foundation album project, Raise Your Voice. An added plus was Bay Area Grammy winner, Fantastic Negrito acting as Emcee for the festival set. Little Village just released the album last Friday, a compilation of songs by students from across the country who participated in the anti-gun violence protests following the February 14, 2018 mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL. The first track on the record is “Shine” by Parkland students, Sawyer Garrity and Andrea Peña and 10 other songs and spoken word pieces share powerful, personal messages by students standing up for change with their passionately delivered songs. All proceeds from the sale of the album benefit Everytown for Gun Safety.  Buy the record wherever you get your music, support the cause and bring it the profile it deserves. This is a crucial time to speak up and support others who are speaking up for all of us. In the meantime, make sure now that you are registered to vote and vote for those who prioritize people over party and profit.”
