Barbara Helen

BARBARA HELEN

Singer Songwriter.

Appearing Sunday 1pm in the Performance Area 



I write my songs from the heart and my songs reflect my emotions. When I evolved to living as a vegan I experienced a whole range of emotions, anger at the world around me that treated animals as "things", despair, by feeling empathy with animals bred for slaughter, depression, that so many animals were being used and abused. I was overwhelmed, I cried and my heart broke. One way of remaining sane, as a vegan in an insane world, is to channel those overwhelming emotions into positive action.
So, I write and perform my songs as I evolve and share my journey through my music.

"Us and them, the mentality of oppression, every living thing has worth, we are all life on Earth, we are Earthlings. " from my song, Earthlings. (Inspired by the documentary Earthlings.)
