Musical theater, meet journalism.
I've always been touched by socially relevant films and documentaries, realizing the importance of social issues and current events which is the goal and essence of Skoll's production company. However, on that very rainy day in Oxford, seated at the New Theatre, I realized that just like the film and its soundtrack, live music could turn into a very powerful tool to deliver a message about social and environmental issues.
After an encore of playful covers including "Debris" by the The Faces and "Blue Eyes" by Willie Nelson, Beam and Hansard split another encore. The crowd didn't want to go home.
