snipshot_e4sv4c6uc2f.jpgJohn Butler, Shannon Birchall and Michael Barker – the Australian triumvirent that combined create the John Butler Trio – brought the noise when they played at this year’s Earthfest Boston this past weekend.

Interesting sidenote: this trio is constantly evolving – there are five previous members, all of which have moved on to other projects. It’s this evolutionary thread that keeps these guys together, and the band’s ultimate goal is to unite people through music to positively affect both social and environmental change.

That’s why the band has joined forces with the CLIF GreenNotes Program, a program designed to partner with musicians to minimize the impact their tours have on the environment.

Not only does this band believe in mimizmizing their carbon footprint, but they are amazing musicians as well. During their Earthfest set, John Butler himself played the constantly evolving guitar solo, Ocean, a song that he never plays the same way twice. Everyone around me was on their feet smiling and they certainly recruited a new fan in me.
