On March 31st, GreenHeroes producer/director  Joan Prowse was on stage at Revival to launch the GreenHeroes’ channel on  Mediazoic’s new Internet radio network. Here is the GreenHereos radio channel, take a listen to our very own GreenHero musicians and hear to great music by Ed Hanley, Chris BirkettJamie SparksDonna Britton and Ado. Soon to come will be Buffy Sainte-Marie and Lesley Pike!

Chris Birkett played at the event and was accompanied on the electric guitar by Dan Ross on a couple of melodies.  Chris was then joined by  Ed Hanley to play Birkett’s new song Wake Up: A Call to Action. Though the duets were completely improvised, the expert mélange of acoustic, electric guitars and tabla was fantastic.
