Beldon Haigh releases anti-Trump ballad ‘Freedom’

Scottish singer-songwriter Beldon Haigh is set to release his anti-Trump protest song ‘Freedom’ this month. Haigh came up with the idea for the track in a dream and after waking, penned the track in just twenty minutes.

‘Freedom’ has links to his family background as Beldon’s wife is a Honduran immigrant with family in the US who are under threat of deportation from Trump’s policies and he is also a father of three children, one of whom is mixed race. In addition, Beldon’s mother was a pioneer for the Women’s Ministry and was the first ever Scottish female priest in the Episcopalian church – as such, he was raised with an acute appreciation of feminism and women’s rights.

The track takes you on an emotional journey but with touches of humour sprinkled throughout, ‘Freedom’ is a protest song that isn’t too preachy to enjoy.
