Review by Sarit Perkol in Maariv, a major Israeli daily newspaper.
"And They Shall Beat Their swords into Guitars ..." writes Johnny Mayer on the Blues for Peace
website. The site, in English, was set up to to honor the roots of blues music and promote peace and the understanding that ALL peoples have had their share of the Blues.
It offers pictures of Israeli Blues Festivals, info and pictures of the great blues musicians such as
Charlie Mingus, B.B. King, Eric Clapton and others. There are articles on Beat Generation writers
and poets like Alan Ginsburg and Jack Kerouac, song lyrics, notes and song files.
Meir also invites whoever is interested to join in by reading a poem or sitting in at Blues
for Peace programs. (www.blues.co.il). March 19, 2001.
