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.
For the past few years Charlie and Annie have frequently 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 The ARTery on Friday, March 15th! Tickets are $8 in advance and $10 at the door. This concert is a benefit for Centro Maya Project, Palomares Social Justice Center, and the Native American Coalition of the Quad Cities.
Charlie is a beloved nationally known activist, satirist, and singer-songwriter who has recorded 2 dozen CDs. He is the 2017 Phil Ochs Award, in recognition of his music and activism for social and political justice in the spirit of Phil Ochs.
Annie is the co-creator of Rise Up Singing and the 2015 sequel Rise Again. Annie is an accomplished performer of traditional Appalachian & Celtic music as well as singer songwriter material that touch on a wide range of issues facing our world today.
