Musicians United to Protect Bristol Bay

We organize musicians to use their music and access to fans and media to spread the word about the struggle to protect Bristol Bay from being destroyed by the proposed Pebble Mine. In three years we have built a network of over 500 musicians. 

In 2015, musicians around the country sang and spoke to their fans about Bristol Bay.  Members Tret Fure and Tom Chapin released two new CDs with three new songs about the struggle.  In 2014, co-founder Si Kahn released the album "Bristol Bay," which hit #1 for July's International Folk DJ's Playlist.

And when mobilization and response has been required, submitting public comments, signing petitions and keeping an eye on unfolding developments we have turned it out, through our newsletter alerts, which our members share with their fans.
