Rise Again Tour
Since Rise Again was released in September 2015 we held over 50 singalong concerts celebrating the release of Rise Again (see Locations) usually with other artists who have songs in the new book.
Since the election of 2016 we have focused our concerts on building hope, resilience and resistance - standing especially with immigrants, women, and people of color - all facing great threats to their dignity and safety i the current political climate. We held a Justice for All Tour we did with blues-gospel-activist Lea Gilmore in April 2017 and a Hope & Strength Tour in Ohio and Indiana in August 2017. Annie is currently setting up a Wake Up and Sing tour between now and June 2018.
Other performers joining us. A wonderful array of performers who have songs in the new book have joined us for one or more of these concerts including: Lou & Peter Berryman, Tom Chapin, emma's revolution, Bev Grant, Bill Harley, Kim & Reggie Harris, Joe Jencks, Charlie King, Magpie, John McCutcheon and many more! Full performers list (Annie performs & leads singing at all shows and is often joined by her husband and the songbook's co-creator, Peter Blood.)
Many of these concerts were benefits for The Carry It On Fund, a fund that is helping support the archiving of Pete & Toshi Seeger's papers and other projects that carry on projects they believed in and worked for. For more information go to https://carryiton.org.
