I just posted a new Easter song called The Stone Was Rolled Away.
It’s just me and my National guitar recorded live off the floor. It’s interesting that despite Easter being considered such a seminal event in Christianity there are so few songs that actually tell the story of that first Easter. As I reflect on the story now, I’m struck by the fact that so often the way stones in our lives roll away is not the way we hope or expect. Whatever your spiritual beliefs, it is a great story.
For many years I’ve done Easter performances at the Sivananda Yoga Ashram in Val Morin, Quebec and I would have been there this year except my wife came down with COVID somewhere coming back from the CFMA‘s last weekend. It didn’t seem like a good idea to be leading an indoor singing workshop, etc. if I might be spreading germs. Instead I stayed home and made this video. I hope some of you enjoy it.
