“Thank You, Soldier”

I wanted you all of a special experience that the Conchords were a part of about 5 years ago.  Jeremy Walker had written a song, “Thank You, Soldier”  to honor a close friend and all servicemen and women for their sacrifice.  I was asked to listen to the song.  When it was over, I knew it was something that we should take part in.  With Jeremy’s permission, I arranged it for choir, soloist, guitar and piano.  What you will hear is our recording of it.  We ended up performing with Jeremy on the waterfront in downtown Portland as part of the Rose Festival’s Memorial Day event.  Thousands showed up, including vets, their families, and others.  A parameter of vets on motorcycles and flags was very stirring.

So here is that recording to honor our vets once more.
