Peter Mulvey wrote and debuted “Take Down Your Flag” two days after the 2015 Charleston church massacre. He then posted the song on YouTube, which prompted many other artists to contribute additional verses and upload their own versions of the song.

I’ve performed this song countless times with Peter, and often with the full band featuring SistaStrings – Chauntee and Monique Ross – two of the planet’s most talented musicians. We recorded a COVID-era live video of the song.
