#awesome #georgetakei #inspirational

If you are from a minority, if you've ever felt victimized, if you've ever thought something wasn't right, you and I and +George Takei have something powerful and meaningful in common.

He's doing something about it.

Are you?

I have the wonderful opportunity last night to meet George and hear his story. His keynote talk at #socialshakeup15 had a large banquet room full of social media, marketing and PR people so completely captivated, you could hear a pin drop.

Tears were shed. Keyboards were silent. A moment happened. We were all inspired at the strength and determination shown by a single human being who'd been through more than anyone could have imagined.

I went to the keynote expected to hear an actor and a comedian perform. What I discovered was an inspiring man in his 80s determined to make a difference for the rest of us and how he harnessed the power of social media to create an army of social fans and followers over 7 years to help further him right the wrongs.

Despite such a tumultuous life and compelling story, George had the presence of mind and strength of spirit to sit down at the end of his keynote and answer questions while joking with +Robin Carey about much, much less important things.

If we dare to dream, we will picture what can be done
3 airports in one day, plus a launch (of a book). What lofty things will we achieve this week?!

John Wort Hannam is known for his story telling through music. Themes which are central to his music include life in Western Canada, and the human experience as seen through the eyes of simple working folk. He has three albums to his credit and 6 National Folk Music Awards. Every time Edgewater gets a musician of this caliber its a real treat.

The houseband at the legendary Saturday Night Special music club in Calgary. The Beagle Boys are the result of the musical virtuosity displayed by keyboardist Guy Plecash, multi-instrumentalist and one time Valley resident Fred Mallette, guitarist Phil Whitburn, drummer Bill Nodrick and bassist Charles Frank.

In large part that is due to the band’s unique ability to shift seamlessly from one style and genre of music to another. As a result, any “Beagles” show is bound to include some country, a dash of gospel, a sampling of rockin’ blues, two or three original tunes, a dose of bluegrass and even the odd jazz styling.
