Lilly Bird Bechtel delves into SUN SiNG on WTJU, April 23

Lilly “Bird” Bechtel will stop by WTJU on Tuesday afternoon, April 23, around 12:30 to chat about the SUN SiNG benefit concert at Jefferson Theater on April 26.  Rumor is she might even bring along her guitar and perform a few tunes.

The SUN SiNG collective is working now to create a new No Pipeline anthem, song video and an inspiring theatrical concert evening for the entire environmental and pipeline resistance community of Virginia.

The SUN SiNG Concert on Friday, April 26, 6 pm at The Jefferson Theater in Charlottesville, VA is also for those new to the story of protecting Virginia from fracked gas pipelines and certainly for anyone who simply loves good Virginia music and circus like spectacle.

Very kid friendly. All proceeds go to Interfaith Alliance for Climate Justice.

The “To the River” song video is being recorded and filmed along both the Mountain Valley and Atlantic Coast pipeline routes by the Sun Bus, which uses the solar panels on its roof to power a mobile concert sound and recording system. “To the River” will premiere at the April 26 concert.

SUN SiNG, a project of Water is life. Protect it. and ARTivism Virginia, is a collaboration of musicians, fine artists, videographers, designers and large scale puppet masters from all across Virginia.

Each member of the SUN SiNG collective has chosen to sing for a particular pipeline endangered creature and a series of ARTivist portraits is being released now as “Who Will Sing for Me?”
