10 Not Afraid
(mar 2020)
Lyrics Not Afraid
While the corona virus spreaded out over the world, we wanted to encourage everyone not to be afraid.
Still follow the rules of your government.
The song was originally written as a sort of hard rock piece.
In 2021 it was re-mixed for video and that has a more folky feel about it, due to the use of a hurdy gurdy and a tin whistle.
See and listen: Not Afraid (folk version).
