“SUN SiNG iN PLACE” is an online concert series from ARTivism Virginia featuring music from individual SUN SiNG Collective members and those they’re quarantined with, as well as guest ARTivists and leaders in the fight against the Mountain Valley, Atlantic Coast, and MVP Southgate pipelines, and other threatening fracked gas infrastructure in our region.
The SUN SiNG Collective is a group of musicians and visual artists formed in 2019 to create, record, and perform original material to support the work of the broad, deep, and growing coalition fighting fracked gas infrastructure. The group, led by co-producers Graham Smith-White and Kay Ferguson, collectively arranged and remotely recorded “To The River”, and original song by member Joshua Vana, using the Sun Bus, an off-road vehicle with solar-powered recording and concert-level sound capability. Their work last spring culminated at the SUN SiNG Concert in Charlottesville, Virginia, and the music ensemble has continued to show up to support those fighting for environmental justice in our region.
