SPECIAL VIDEO FEATURE: Interview with songwriter and performer Eighty Bug about the “Spirit of 1776” song she wrote and produced about the suffrage wagon used by Edna Kearns in the New York State votes for women movement. The “Spirit of 1776” horse-drawn wagon was exhibited at the New York State Museum from 2017 to 2018 as part of an exhibit commemorating the 100 years of New York State women voting.
Eighty Bug won national recognition for her song “Spirit of 1776.” She highlights the importance of the subject matter, and Suffrage Wagon Cooking School featured her desserts.
FROM MARGUERITE KEARNS:
Working with Eighty Bug, the composer, songwriter, and performer was a thrilling experience. The video turned out to make visible a spirit that is difficult, at best, to communicate. Seeing is experiencing. Check out the completed “Spirit of 1776” video on YouTube.
