This video, released in February 2015, is for George’s song “Beautiful Blond Babies” from the “Portraits” CD. Chris Chandler shot and produced this video, Marty Confurius is featured on cello, Molly MacMillan on piano, and Marie Burns on harmonies.
George sings “Welcome Home” and tells the story of Julius Margolin’s last months in this performance recorded at Humph Hall, Australia, in 2012.
George performs “This Beautiful Child” at the Illawarra Folk Club concert in honor of Pete Seeger, February 7, 2014, in Wollongong, Australia.
The poet/songwriter/video artist and storyteller Chris Chandler has created videos for three of George’s songs: “Streams of Gold” from both the Until You Come Home veterans CD compilation and George’s Songs for Jules and Bruce CD. This song deals with the effects of war on soldiers, and efforts to help soldiers with post-traumatic stress disorder.
“I’m Chipping Away at This War” is from George’s “Into the Fire” CD and also addresses the issue of soldiers trying to readjust to life after wartime service.
“I Remember Winter” is the first video that Chandler made for George (in 2008!) and focuses on the subject of global warming. Shot in and around New York City, where George lived at the time.
George toured Australia in 2011 and these videos were shot by Wayne Richmond at Humph Hall near Sydney. The three songs featured are “Streams of Gold,” “This Beautiful Child” and “Cancer Changes Everything,” which George had just written two days earlier.
George shot this video at home while working on “The Union Made Me Strong” from the “Patience in These Times” CD and the CD covers feature many of his friends and mentors among labor/protest singers.
This video was shot at Wilburland Studios, where George recorded “Cancer Changes Everything,” a song written during his first tour of Australia in 2011.
