Trish honors Veterans with "Thank a Soldier"

Trish will share her new song, “Thank a Soldier,” at the City of Santa Clarita Veterans Day Commemoration on Sunday, November 11. The event, at Veterans Plaza, 24275 Walnut St. in Newhall, starts at the traditional time of 11 AM. The public is invited. Trish's debut CD, “Plymouth Belvedere” released this spring, includes the patriotic song. “I was inspired to write the song after hearing a famous poem, ‘It Is the Soldier,’ by U.S. Army Veteran Charles M. Province,” Trish said. “Over the years, much of American folk music has been focused on peace. It’s easy to forget that peace and freedom have a price. We owe a debt of gratitude to the men and women who have stood up to protect and defend us. They deserve a folk song, too!” Lester will also perform the song live on radio station KCSN 88.5 FM on Saturday, November 10. She will appear on the morning acoustic Americana radio show, “Tied to the Tracks,” at 8:30 AM, Pacific Standard Time. The show is broadcast out of Northridge, CA, and for those out of radio range, it may be heard live on the WEB at The music and lyrics to “Thank a Soldier” are posted here at this Website, and the song is available for download at iTunes, and other digital media sources.
