Malvina Reynolds – Opher’s World pays tribute to a genius.

Malvina is another of those quaint Folk singers who produce the songs that we all take for granted. She penned Little Boxes. On the face of it a simple little ditty but when you think about the content it has real barbs. Pete Seeger made it famous.
Malvina was a feisty little old lady who stood for fairness and equality. I can’t imagine her ever being young but she must have been quite a force to reckon with. She stood up to the might of the Klu Klux Klan. She wrote songs against the inequality of the capitalist system.
On the surface she was a quaint, soft-spoken, polite old lady. Underneath that façade she was a passionate social revolutionary.

I'd like to hear from you...
