Co-creators of the popular songbook Rise Up Singing and their new sequel Rise Again, Annie Patterson & Peter Blood have played a central role in helping create a quiet revolution of group singing in North America.
Annie is a singer songwriter, old timey banjo player and jazz vocalist with the swing trio, Girls from Mars. Peter worked closely with Pete Seeger to edit his autobiography Where Have All the Flowers Gone.
Currently, Annie is touring the U.S. & Canada - sometimes with Peter and sometimes on her own or with other musicians - leading singing, giving concerts and speaking with a variety of communities about music, hope and courage in these trying times. Their sing along concerts have a performance feel with a sing-along/audience participation component. Annie and Peter have been joined on their concerts by over 50 musicians who have songs in Rise Again (published by Hal Leonard Publications) and Rise Up Singing.
