November 2015: Songs of Struggle and Freedom


In November 2015, People’s Music Network is hosting the Second Annual PMN Song of the Month Showcase at the Northeast Regional Folk Alliance Conference, taking place November 12-15, 2015 in Kerhonkson, NY. (See the 10 songs selected for last year’s 2014 PMN showcase, including the judges’ top pick, “By my Silence,” written by Ellen
Bukstel & Nick Annis.

In the 2015 showcase, which will be presented in person and online via youtube, we aim to feature powerful songs of freedom and struggle that are being written today to inspire movements struggling toward a more just and peaceful world.

Applicants for the November 2015 PMN Song of the Month must be in attendance at the NERFA Conference.

The judging for these songs will take place in person at the PMN Song of the Month Showcase at NERFA on the evening of Friday, November 13, from 12:00am to 1:00am. This showcase will include the top 10 songs selected for November 2015 —  each done by a different performer.

All performers in the PMN Song of the Month Showcase at NERFA, are strongly encouraged to join PMN as members and/or get up to date on their annual membership dues.

Submissions are due on October 26, 2015. The final 10 songs for this showcase will be announced November 2, 2015.
