Holly Near, Arlo Guthrie, Ronnie Gilbert & Pete Seeger – HARP (1984 Recording, Reissued in 2001)


In September of 1984, four amazing musicians firmly rooted in the tradition of political folk music joined together to sing. Reagan was raising havoc all over the world, AIDS was killing loved ones, the anti-apartheid movement was inspiring global activism and issues of disarmament, feminism, gay & lesbian rights, racism and access were being hotly debated. Holly Near, Arlo Guthrie, Ronnie Gilbert and Pete Seeger provided the soundtrack to the movement, with love songs and liberation songs spanning the generations but united with their common purpose. Includes thirteen extra songs not included on the original! Released in 2001.
