Violet and I had an absolute blast taking the stage with her friend Jaycee at the Windsor Women’s March and belting out For What It’s Worth by Buffalo Springfield.
We were all pretty nervous up there in front of a crowd of more than 500 people and some of the signature choreography we practiced the night before ended up on the cutting room floor. I almost dropped my pick twice and somehow managed to save it. Violet rocked that bongo drum, though, and Jaycee sure kicked it on the tambourine.
Organizer Pat Papadeas made an impassioned, empowering speech and did a fantastic job organizing the event. She invited Violet and me to sing the song because we had posted the song on Facebook a year ago, wishing well a busload of Windsor women who joined the historic March on Washington. She said that video was a ray of sunshine amidst some negative social media posts and after a long bus ride with a long wait on the border. That made us quite happy and we were honoured she asked us to play at the march.

Me, to my daughter, all day long: 'Hey, you look familiar? Did I see you on the TV News last night?'
