CANCELLED: Songs of Hope & Courage - Miami



THIS CONCERT HAS BEEN CANCELLED DUE TO CAUTION AROUND THE COVID-19 OUTBREAK. We hope the concert can rescheduled at a future date.

Celebrating Pete Seeger's Centennial 

Pete Seeger was born on May 3rd, 1919. He spent his life working for a better world through song. Join us for an evening that honors his work and carries on the tradition of singing for justice and resilience.

Songleader/performer. This concert will feature Annie Patterson (the co-creator of the songbooks Rise Up Singing and Rise Again). The audience will also be encouraged to join Annie in singing together out of If I Had a Hammer, a new collection of songs that Pete wrote or was great at performing and leading. Annie created this songbook especially to honor the 100th anniversary of Pete Seeger's birth. Copies will be available to borrow or buy at the concert - or you can pre-order copies now to pick up when you arrive. 

Annie will also perform some songs from her two most recent CD's "Step by Step" and "Fearless: Celebrating Women Singers". 

This concert is a benefit for the Florida Justice Institute. FJI is a nonprofit public interest law firm that conducts civil rights litigation & advocacy in the areas of prisoners' rights, housing discrimination, disability discrimination, and other areas that impact the lives of Florida's poor & disenfranchised.
