For about forty years, Guy and Candie Carawan have devoted their lives to music making, collecting and spreading songs, documenting cultural expression, organizing traditional music festivals and designing workshops with the goal of empowering participants to learn and inspire others in their own communities. They have raised two chldren while living on the Sea Islands off the coast of South Carolina, finding themselves at the forefront of the civil rights movement, and living and soaking up the culture of Appalachia -- all while Guy maintained a folk music performing career. They come to their work with a strong social conscience, a love of music and with the knowledge that music and other cultural expression is often the very brick that builds bridges between communities.
