Where's That Power Gonna Come From? is a 30-minute original creative work inspired by the transition underway in Appalachia and across the country from an economy dependent on fossil fuels toward a brighter, sustainable future of our own making. In this excerpt, elements of song, story, spoken word and ceremony will be offered from a longer piece originally devised and presented outdoors in the woods of Clear Creek in the Rockcastle County foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. The piece explores the issue of oil & gas fracking from multiple vantages and invites us all to action in honoring and celebrating the land and its resources.

The piece was created of, by and for our community and others seeking to understand and activate ourselves as part of a just Appalachian Transition. The current ensemble includes Mitch Barrett, Carrie Brunk, Jacob Graber, Bob Martin, Kayla Preston, Robert Rorrer, Mirra Shapiro and Melody Youngblood. Numerous local farms, growers and other community members as well as visiting artists have been integral to the creation and offering of this work along with the support of Alternate ROOTS’ Partners in Action program. Where's That Power Gonna Come From? is produced and presented by Clear Creek Creative.

This will be followed immediately with an organizing rally for Bernie Sanders. To sign up for the event, please follow the link:
