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.
Annie and Peter are currently touring the U.S. & Canada with their new songbook, Rise Again (with 1200 additional songs). Their concerts have a performance feel with a sing-along/audience participation component. They have been joined on their tours by over 50 musicians who have songs in Rise Again (published by Hal Leonard Publications).
