sed Traveling Folk Musicians without Wheels (23) Traveling Folk Musicians Go 'Green' 10 Mar 03

Are there some good role models in folk music land, sea and sky, of conscientious touring musicians who absolutely refuse to use petro-guzzling motorized vehicles to get from gig to gig?

I'd like to do a radio show on these people's music and talk about alternatives to driving many tens of thousands of miles each year as one folksinger recently bragged about doing.

Are there any folksingers tooling down the backroads from venue to venue in solar cars or even in homemade hybrids?

What about horsemen/women, bicyclists, public-trans-only folkies? Or maybe even a Peace Pilgrim singer actually walking to gigs?

That kind of person needs both congratulations, publicity and friendly support, don't you agree? Haven't we traded enough blood for gas to last the rest of our lives? Can't we support some real alternatives to business as usual?
