THE TIMES, THEY ARE A-CHANGIN’
In spite of the changes in American administration, I seem to have a persistent, sinking feeling about what it happening in this nation.
My dear friend, Martin, sent me this song trying to lift my spirits up.
Let’s give it a listen together.
Brandi Carlile, Pearl Jam’s Mike McCready Tease Cover of Bob Dylan’s ‘The Times They Are a-Changin”
The 40-second clip captures the beginning of the performance, with Carlile singing lead on the song’s first verse. The accompaniment is sparse, although McCready and the other musicians on stage appear set to join in just as the clip ends.
Per a press release, Peace Through Music will honor the 75th anniversary of the United Nations and serve as a “call for equality, human rights, and an end to discrimination, spotlighting people of African descent and championing the full protection and promotion of human rights for all.”
Contributions from partners and all donations will benefit organizations fighting poverty, inequality, and systemic discrimination, such as Playing for Change Foundation, the United Nations Population Fund, Silkroad, and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation.

Written more than 50 years ago, the Bob Dylan classic “The Times They Are A-Changin’” is as relevant today as it was then.
We invite you to enjoy this touching rendition performed by Brandi Carlile along with Mike McCready (Pearl Jam) from our recent event, celebrating the 75th anniversary of the UN, Peace Through Music.
Change is inevitable.
It’s up to us to create change that uplifts, change that betters ourselves and humankind, and change that is for the good and for the love of everyone. Let’s stand strong, united in one love, and be the positive change we want to see in the world.
