Rattle the Walls- a musical collective determined to make a difference

Our country has changed rapidly over the past year. (Yes, that could be considered a gross understatement.)The unsettled feeling which has plagued many of us makes us each want to act – a call to action which we can personalize to fuel the causes we believe in. Art, in all of it’s forms, is a powerful tool to be used to fight social injustice.

The musicians of Rattle the Walls heard the call and came running, instruments in tow. I spoke with Forrest Ransburg, founder of the group, about their formation, their goals as a collective, and how they chose art as their weapon – or, to put it more softly, their tool- in our new America.
