"We need to wean the American food system off its heavy 20th-century diet of fossil fuel and put it back on a diet of contemporary sunshine."

Unity College Quartet at Maine Farmers’ Markets
A Unity College band called Dog Wants Out will perform at Maine farmers’ markets this year to support local food and local farmers.

The band consists of Rob Constantine, Vice President for College Advancement, on keyboard; Anna McGalliard, Director of Health Services, on banjo; Sara Trunzo ’08, Unity College Farm Manager, on mandolin and vocals; and John Zavodny, Professor of Philosophy and Humanities, on vocals and guitar.

“As local musicians who value local food, we saw this as an opportunity to combine our musical interest with our community values,” says Zavodny.  “We hope that performing fun, accessible, family friendly music at local farmers’ markets will help draw first time and repeat shoppers to the vendors.”

Zavodny sees the tour as part of a larger community music project uniting local musicians in support of local charitable causes.

With characteristic humor, Zavodny notes that the music will be good, but will hardly place them among wealthy touring artists.

“We say that we will play for cheese, because compensation normally comes in the form of gas money, and produce is collected when the organizers pass the hat among the vendors at the farmers’ market,” said Zavodny.

The performance schedule and samples of the band’s music are on Facebook under the search Dog Wants Out. (Press release, Unity College, April 2009)
