Charlie and Annie - Richmond IN
Join us for an evening of powerful singing with two of North America's best-known 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.
Charlie and Annie have often recorded & performed together, including Annie's vocals on Charlie's 2017 CD "Life & Love, Tears & Laughter". They are releasing a new live album "Step by Step" early in 2019 and are taking these songs on the road on this tour.They are coming to Richmond on Sunday March 17th - St Patrick's Day!. (Both Charlie & Annie have ancestral roots in the "Green Isle" and they'll include some great Irish songs in the concert as well.) The concert is being held at the Stout Meetinghouse on Earlham College campus. You can buy tickets now on this webpage or at the door. No one should stay away because of limited means!Annie and Charlie will also be providing music ministry during the service at West Richmond Friends Meeting on Sunday morning.
