GuyB at Great Music Stories comments: “I think we have all felt a shocked by what we’ve seen on the news and also a sense of helplessness. On Friday, we’ll come together to share a message for peace and freedom. It’s important the rock and blues community is connected to world events and has something to say. The messages for peace are a sincere and heartfelt step by a wide range of musicians to demonstrate a show of support with the people of Ukraine.”
