MR Music Issue

massachusetts review musicExecutive Editor Jim Hicks opens the newest issue of The Massachusetts Review: The Music Issue with this from his introduction: "For this particular quarterly, given that 'public affairs' is the kicker to our moniker, the first reaction of readers might well be, 'Why?' Certainly if you think of music as entertainment, as remedy or therapy, you might not see such a theme as urgent. And yet what social movement, what new political formation, hasn’t had its unforgettable soundtrack? Where, after all, do those in the struggle find the force and inspiration to keep moving forward, to get up, stand up, in this world full of tunnels and only occasional light? What brings them together, what lifts their voices, what beats the drum?"

The front cover features "The Music Issue, 2016" created for The Massachusetts Review  by Bianca Stone, and a full list of contributors with access to some of the works can be found here.
