Coastal Conservation Music Contest

I received the following from the Coastal Conservation League, click the links provided to learn more information.

Musicians and Performance Artists:

Create a three minute or less YouTube video demonstrating why you care about the Earth. The Coastal Conservation League and the Charleston Green Fair present the "Music with a Message" contest to recognize Charleston's environmentally friendly artists and bands.


The second annual Green Fair promises to be a huge success. Last year's event drew over 5,000 people to Marion Square to learn about changes they can make in their lives to better the environment. This year's music lineup includes Jesse Colin Young, the lead singer of '60s sensation, the Youngbloods. Their hit song "Let's Get Together" ("C'mon people now, smile on your brother") became a soundtrack for peace in that era of great social change. The Coastal Conservation League wants you to be Jesse's co-headliner.

We're looking for musicians with a message. Convey to us your desire for a better world. Do it through a song, a lyric within a song, a lifestyle, an earth-friendly approach to touring and performing ... whatever - be creative. Then show it to us in a three-to-five minute YouTube video (e-mail submissions to Along with bands and musicians, we welcome entries from dance troupes, comedians, poets, and any other performance art.

Winners perform at the Charleston Green Fair on Sunday, September 27, 2009, collect cash prizes, and receive studio time. Spread your name by using art to make a difference!
