In February, David and Francine Wheeler, the parents of a child killed in the Sandy Hook tragedy, joined notable musicians including Peter Yarrow of Peter, Paul and Mary and the folk singer Dar Williams to perform a concert for the community. The Wheelers and Yarrow joined Bill on Moyers & Company to discuss the path forward for gun control advocates and the power of music to bring about both healing and social change.
Yarrow said the concert was about “restoring the heart and soul of a caring community.” Watch two of the songs they performed:
Francine Wheeler and Dar Williams sing “Family”
The Wheelers, Peter Yarrow and others sing “Blowing in the Wind”
