Charlie and Annie - Ithaca
This event is SOLD OUT. Thank you! If you bought tickets in advance your names will be at a “will call” list at the door.
Join us for an evening of powerful singing with two of North America's best-loved activist folk singers. Charlie King and Annie Patterson are touring together in the midwest in March 2019. Charlie’s witty political satire and his uncanny ability to find endearing songs about struggle and the human experience are a natural fit with Annie's own performing and sing-along work.
This concert celebrates the release of a new live album "Step by Step" and the 100th anniversary of Pete Seeger's birth. Location: Friends Center for Racial Justice. NOTE: Reservations suggested. We may change to a larger venue if this venue gets sold out. Last minute attendance welcome but call first!
Tickets are for a suggested donation of $10-20 at the door. No one turned away for lack of funds. This concert is a benefit for the Friends Center for Racial Justice. You can also purchase advance tickets now as well as copies of Annie and Charlie's CD - to be picked up at the door via a will call list.
