About John Dillon & Viv Nesbitt

"We all have a song to sing… whether it be music, writing, painting or simply living life as a work of art. The world needs your creative voice!" – John & Viv

ART OF THE SONG is a Labor of Love. We've been producing Art of the Song for 17 years in an effort to inspire listeners to find and express their creative voices.

Art of the Song is a weekly syndicated radio program exploring creativity through the lens of songwriting and music performance. The music and interview show is heard on public and community stations across North America. We interview legendary as well as up-and-coming artists. Past interviews have included Smokey Robinson, Glenn Frey, Gretchen Peters, John Oates, Leon Russell, Judy Collins, Roger Daltrey, Jorma Kaukonen and Joan Osborne.

PATRONS RECEIVE ACCESS TO OVER ART OF THE SONG SHOWS FROM THE ARCHIVE AND OTHER EXCLUSIVE CONTENT!

MOTHER JONES IN HEAVEN, a musical by Si Kahn, is one-woman play with guitar accompaniment about the infamous labor organizer famed for her tireless efforts on behalf of the rights of the working class. Leading the charge for better working conditions and fair pay for coal miners, mill workers and child laborers, Mother Jones was dubbed “The Most Dangerous Woman in America” by a West Virginia judge because, “At the crook of her little finger, she could get 8,000 men to walk out on strike.” Feared, revered and lauded in song and legend, Mother Jones was indeed “the grandmother of all agitators.”

WE LOOK FORWARD TO TOURING AGAIN IN THE SUMMER OF 2021!

OFFICIAL PATRONS RECEIVE ACCESS TO A FULL 90 MINUTE PERFORMANCE OF MOTHER JONES IN HEAVEN!

THE BARK AND THE TREE written and performed by Vivian Nesbitt. Alcoholism. Depression. Suicide. Not the family footsteps that Vivian wanted to follow, but when they threatened to be the ones she was destined for... she took action.

"SPARKLES WITH WIT & WISDOM ~ storytelling at its best and most poignant!"
Lynn C. Miller (Voices Made Flesh)

She set sail for Ireland in search of a different legacy. Tracing her lineage back five generations she finds one filled with poetry, song... and loyalty. Colliding with the past, the present and the "Born & Breds," the play bends time and space as she creates a future and a truth all her own.

Discovery and surrender, juxtaposed with the comedy of human nature fill the play with pathos, humor and adventure.
