Here's the lineup:
Wendell Berry - legendary Kentucky author and poet
Jim James (of My Morning Jacket)
Daniel Martin Moore
Makalani Bandele - affrilachian poet
Here's the reason for the rally (from an email from KFTC):
As you know, the EPA is conducting a series of public meetings to accept input on possible new regulations on the storage and disposal of coal ash. This follows the huge disaster at the TVA coal-fired power plant in Kingston TN, where over 1 billion gallons of toxic materials spilled into tributaries of the Tennessee River.
We are asking that coal ash be classified as a hazardous waste, which will greatly strengthen the requirements for handling and storing this toxic material.
The rally begins at 4:30 p.m. This is a great cause. If you go, go to support the cause, not just to listen to a few living legends. I'm sure they'd like it that way.
Update: This was a great event. Jim James and Daniel Martin Moore played one song each, "Look at You" and "Needn't Say a Thing", respectively. Here are some photos.
