He performed Blowin’ in the Wind on the Late Night Show with David Letterman, in support of the Chimes of Freedom album release.
The performer in his humanitarian cap was also busy playing his part to protect the environment. He was the interview feature in the cover story of Boulder Weekly and a played a benefit concert in Boulder Colorado to promote freedom from Genetically Modified Organisms as part of the GMO Free Boulder campaign.
