John Ellis and Barry van Zyl - 'Rights All Wrong' >
Garden State Festival gave us an opportunity for some inspiring collaborations. Laura Burhenn (Mynabirds), Dave Depper (Death Cab for Cutie) and Kyp Malone (TV on the Radio) spent some time with us at Peace of Eden.
Greenpop's Festival of Action 2018 was relocated from Livinstone in Zambia to Peace of Eden in Rheenendal taking place mid winter during June and July. Volunteers planted thousands of trees in fire-ravaged areas and generally provided environmental care and education to affected communities. Some of the musicians taking part contributed to a 'festival track' featuring Greenpopers: Jeremy Loops, Quite a White Ou (Craig Charnock), Paulo Costa, The Steezies, Crosscurrent, Perfect Shadows and quite a few others.
And amidst all the frenetic Greenpop tree-planting and good environmental vibes Derek Gripper returned suddenly (he couldnt wait) to record 'a sequel' to his successful One Night on Earth album. We tracked the project in the same all-night-blaze fashion and by day break it was done.
Then there was a continuation of voice-over work for Mega Master before environmental troubadour John Varty arrived mid festival to lay two new songs down with back-up singers, The Tigers.
