Bernie Sanders is throwin' down (Oooooooo feel the Bern'!)
Across this nation from town to town (Oooooooo feel the Bern'!)
Ninety-nine percent, time to represent (Oooooooo feel the Bern'!)
People's Choice for President! (Oooooooo feel the Bern'!)

No one who works forty hours a week
should face a life of poverty
Seventy-eight cents to every man's dollar
if you're sick of that, ladies, holler!

(Oooooooo feel the Bern'!)

Make it easier for unions to form and impact lives
of ordinary people who are trying to get by
The new high school diploma? University degree
If Wall Street stepped up to the plate, education could be free

(Oooooooo feel the Bern'!)

Immigrants from here, immigrants from there
Few of us are native, what's fair is fair
American Dream binging Billionaires
The time has come for you to share

Bernie Sanders is throwin' down (Oooooooo feel the Bern'!)
Across this nation from town to town (Oooooooo feel the Bern'!)
Ninety-nine percent, time to represent (Oooooooo feel the Bern'!)
Bernie Sanders for President! (Oooooooo feel the Bern'!)

A government for the people by the people which we stand for
A president who embodies this and wants to try to end war
Says corporations are not humans, they don't deserve our rights
Till they break up all the big banks, we won't give up the fight

No more...strikin' deals
Heed the...people's choice
Put Bernie...on the stand
Give back...the people's voice

They have the money but we have the people...
They have the money but we have the people...
They have the money but we have the people...
Come together, right now...

(Oooooooo feel the Bern'!)

About Erin Inglish w/the Stringtown Ambassadors

Insightful songwriting, lush harmony singing, and fearless picking, this act features the award-winning songwriting of California banjo chanteuse Erin Inglish (expressive, sassy, dynamic banjo; lush and raw power-house vocals) galvanized by the soaring harmonies, tenacious solos and gritty rhythmic drive of the Stringtown Ambassadors - a rotating collective of passionate and unabashed modern-day minstrels hosted by fiddler and singer Rosalind Parducci. Luminous musicianship and rhythmic groove, Erin Inglish w/the Stringtown Ambassadors present a high-energy, entertaining, positively-charged act - steeped with harmonies and instrumental prowess on the banjo and fiddle accompanied by percussion, guitar, mandolin or bass. (www.erininglish.com, www.stringtownambassadors.com)

Erin Inglish is a tour-de-force banjo chanteuse, a thoughtful wanderer steeped in the thick of California’s music scene. Inglish’s performances proffer passionate lyricism, toe-tapping grooves, and striking reflections about the state of the modern world. Her voice is both lush and raw, and her picking style on the five-string banjo is uniquely her own…expressive, sassy, dynamic. Erin has spent several years living abroad (in India, Madagascar, Bulgaria and Serbia) – and her songwriting reflects her elation for life, creative and exploratory nature, and passion for creating positive change through community and art. Inglish's newest album, Muse, release November, 2015, and features nine tracks of original music lush with groove-laden, "blues-grass" banjo riffs, her honest and powerful vocal stylings - pure, soulful, and gritty at the same time - and a brilliant cast of guest musicians including hometown jazz maestra Inga Swearingen, Celtic-inspired duo the Stringtown Ambassadors, Steve Amadee of The Subdudes and many more. Anticipating going back into the studio in early 2016, Inglish looks forward to continuing to welcome new guests onto her proejcts. This Fall, Inglish will be accompanied on tour by the Stringtown Ambassadors, hosted by fiddler Rosalind Parducci. Says a North Carolina fan of Erin Inglish, "Her melodic optimism is a lighthouse calling the rest of us to pay attention to our highest pursuits." (www.erininglish.com)

The Stringtown Ambassadors are a rotating collective of passionate and unabashed modern-day minstrels hosted by Northern California fiddler, singer and songwriter Rosalind Parducci. The Stringtown Ambassadors' new-folk collaborations delightfully weave tunes old and new into a compelling performance carried by insightful songwriting, lush harmony singing, and fearless picking. Heartfelt, authentic renditions of familiar reels, time-tested tunes, and original pieces that bend the ear and invite the imagination - Parducci's songs are whimsical and fresh, odes to the artist's journey. Stringtown is a grooving rhythmic soundscape, and its eclectic music bends the ear and invites the imagination. Artists who have and will perform with Stringtown include Erin Inglish, five-string banjo chanteuse out of California, Kenneth Davis, percussionist from the Central Coast of California, and founding member Arlo Blaisus, Vice Chancellor of the Mandolin. Together, the Stringtown Ambassadors are stewards of a transforming musical tradition - they are true ambassadors of American folk music. (www.stringtownambassadors.com)
