Album Notes

The songs on To All We Stretch The Open Arm were chosen, arranged and performed by Mirah and the members of The Black Cat Orchestra. These songs come from places and decades that have seen dissent, passion and revolution. They are personal and international; modern and historic. They are songs by Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Stephen Foster, Kurt Weill, Bertold Brecht, Anon, Fausto Amodei, Horacio Guarany and Mirah Yom Tov Zeitlyn. Simply put, they are what would have once been called protest songs.

Mirah and the The Black Cat Orchestra sing and play the good song the way others fight the good fight. Luckily, we'll all get in on this rally. To All We Stretch The Open Arm was made to activate the activist in us all.
