Marking 16 Years Since the Death of Matthew Shepard and Spinning some LONG Songs

A Tribute to Matthew Shepard to mark the 16th year since his death back in 1998. Matthew was a 21-year old student at Wyoming University who was taken out of town and beaten to death by two men because he was gay. He was left on a fence in the countryside near Laramie, Wyoming where he was found 18 hours later by a cyclist who initially thought he was a scarecrow. He died six days later on October 12th. These beautiful songs remember Matthew and hopefully his legacy is that we will all counter bigotry, hatred, homophobia and racism whenever and wherever we encounter it. Also played some "long" songs just to wrap up the long weekend with some stretched out musical pieces.
