I have penned a new verse to Katherine Lee Bates’ “America the Beautiful” and Connecticut artist and calligrapher Kathy Lepak has rendered it with grace and meaning.
The verse was premiered in 2018 performances at Old Songs Festival and the Philadelphia Folk Festival with our youth group The Great Groove Band. Here they are at Philly Folk Fest, led by our new director, Molly Hebert-Wilson. (Video © 2018 Jamie Stanek, used with permission.)
