Previous edition compiled by Megan “Canyon” Phillips
With help from a lot of other people
Thanks to everyone who contributed one way or another to this amazing collection of music. Special thanks to Paul “Palm” Mazzei for his compositions, help with this songbook and setting a rockin’ tone at campfires here at San Joaquin Outdoor School, thanks to Gregory “Grey Wolf” Bahr for his encouragement during this project, and finally thanks to all of the musicians of the valley for making magic every week and creating an environment where music is an integral part of life. Music is one of the most powerful tools we have as naturalists. It lifts spirits and engages minds in a way that is uniquely captivating.
Preface and Acknowledgements from the previous edition:
Here’s a collection that will never be finished, for use with your voice, guitar, shaker, tambourine, drum, flute, and laughter. Remember that kids never love you more than when you get up and make a fool of yourself, on key or not.
Thanks to Evergreen Eric for the original songbook (1995) which this is based upon, to Solar Steve for unending musical and creative inspiration, and to all the rock stars in the Pescadero Valley and beyond. We may not see each other as often as we’d like but we’re all singin’ the same songs.
