Our Awareness-Raising Musicians: Commodore Callahan

Featuring in-house players supplemented by guest artists, Commodore Callahan is a group whose conscience and heart comes through in every song. For 2021, the band is focused on amplifying the story of how unemployment, housing and food insecurity, and financial hardship have all soared in the USA, according to Feeding America. The World Bank has estimated the pandemic to move 150 million people worldwide to the ranks of the extreme poor. With such a stark issue, the band felt a simple video was appropriate. Here for your consideration is "In Canada (No One's Poor)," a new video from the band's Love is Here album.

The album was released at a fundraiser for San Francisco Boys Hope Girls Hope, and one track was featured at a local More than Bluegrass fundraiser for two years running. Another track, "Resurrection," was used in a fundraising telethon by Peter Young Housing Industries and Treatment and garnered an Official Selection and Honorable Mention from the Awareness Film Festival.
