BLUE SKY RIDERS

 

www.BlueSkyRidersband.com

 

The creative spark that eventually evolved into Blue Sky Riders was struck when two veteran singer/songwriters worked on their first song together. When Kenny Loggins, one of the premiere voices in modern popular music, joined forces with Gary Burr, one of Nashville’s most accomplished writers, on the well received 2008 release “How About Now” they felt they sounded like brothers when they sang together. Loggins, looking for a creative step forward in his musical career, decided on the spot to form a band but wanted to add a third, female voice. Burr, who has been named Songwriter of the Year by ASCAP, Billboard and NSAI and has worked with artists such as Juice Newton, Conway Twitty and Wynonna Judd, suggested singer/songwriter Georgia Middleman, who has worked with Keith Urban, Faith Hill and Martina McBride among others. And Blue Sky Riders was born. All three veterans sing lead amid three-part harmonies, which makes Blue Sky Riders unique.

Dallas Holocaust Museum's Center for Education and Tolerance

           

In the spring of 1994.. Carl Wilkens was an American aide worker living with his family in Rwanda.

Spring 1994 was also the start of the Rwanda genocide.. a mass slaughter that killed more than half a million people..

Carl sent his family out of the country along with an American convoy.. but Carl stayed.

He was the *only American* to stay during the genocide.. and his actions saved countless lives..

This evening, Carl will be telling his story at the Dallas Holocaust Museum's Center for Education and Tolerance.
