AUDIO: Peter Mulvey Featuring Sistastrings – “Take Down Your Flag”

Folk singer/songwriter Peter Mulvey has teamed up with SistaStrings for a somber new track, albeit a very meaningful one. “Take Down Your Flag” is written in response to a mass shooting in Charleston. The track was originally written the day after the shooting, and performed as part of Mulvey’s opening set for Ani DiFranco in Massachusetts. The addition of SistaStrings fills out the song’s sound, but the overall message is the only thing that needs to be talked about here. Gun violence and racism are major problems in the United States, and this song addresses both in a way that appeals to the heartstrings. Check out the song below:
