Howdy Friends and Family,
San Juan Island Tour in May
I'm thrilled to be heading back to the San Juan Islands for a five-island tour with concerts on Orcas, Shaw, Lopez, Waldron, and San Juan. I'll be joined by Bruce Harvie on Orcas and Waldron. Come on up for a long weekend, see a show or two, grab a hot tub at Doe Bay, take a few days in Paradise. I'm taking 9 days in paradise.
Seeking Concerts in Montana, Idaho & Eastern Washington
I'm setting up a tour that will travel through Montana, Idaho, and Eastern Washington in the late summer and fall. If you'd like to help set up a community concert, fundraising concert, school environmental education assembly, college concert, house concert or organize a songwriting workshop, please drop me an email at dana@cowswithguns.com.

Captain Charles Moore & Dana in Bellingham
Dana Interviews Captain Charles Moore About the Texas-Size Plastic Garbage Patch in the Pacific
Dana interviews oceanographer Captain Charles Moore, one of the leading voices concerning the huge Texas-size patch of plastic garbage gathering in the Pacific Ocean. Captain Moore discusses the sources of the plastic and what we as individuals and as a society must do to take responsibility for the plastic garbage we are creating, to begin the clean-up of the oceans. Captain Moore sings a sea shanty to close the interview.
Dana will appear with Captain Moore at the Blue Festival (Sustainable Oceans, Sustainable Futures) in Mount Vernon on May 12. See calendar below for details.
Rich Hoeppner & Dana in Kauai

Dana Interviews Rich Hoeppner on How the People of Kauai Stopped the Super Ferry
(An important story for folks fighting the NW coal trains to hear)
Dana interviews Rich Hoeppner, who tells the story of how the people of Kauai (Hawaii, USA) organized and stopped the super ferry with 1,500 people blocking the dock and 200 people on surfboards and in small boats and canoes blockading the super ferry. This is an incredible story of small town America standing up to large corporate interests and the US military…and winning! Rich also sings "Surrender to Love" by Shawna Carol (also of Kauai).
Cow Bus For Sale
One day the Cow Bus will be in the Smithsonian in its own wing near the Space Shuttle. In the meantime, the Cow Bus is looking for greener pastures. If you need a house decorated in an 1800's saloon Holstein motif or enjoy driving huge, slow, head-turning vehicles, this may be your lucky day. 

For those of you between Billings and Bellingham working on the epic battle to stop the coal train (shipping billions of tons of coal from Wyoming to China), I've made up some Coal Train yard signs to help alert our elected officials to our opinions about this.

To find out how to get coal train yard signs, see website above or write me at dana@cowswithguns.com.
If you'd like to help distribute coal train yard signs, drop me an email to dana@cowswithguns.com.
Hope to see you at one of the shows on the San Juan Islands, driving your newly purchased Cow Bus.
Dana
