PlayNo Middle Ground

by Michele Botel

This song represents the dichotomy I faced growing up as a tree hugger in a coastal logging community of British Columbia (not to mention marrying a logger). It is a haunting ballad which has become a crowd favourite with many audiences, including those in my wee hometown! As in most of my writing, I love to throw in twists and this one leaves one with a sense that although we fight over the land, trees, etc., perhaps we are fighting for the same thing and, therefore, don't need to fight at all.

A storyteller with amazing vocal range!!Go, Michele

A folksy ballad of a song in honour of the old growth trees and the working man with the chainsaw. Embrace the dichotomy and avoid all costs!
