Charlie and Annie - Syracuse

Join us for an evening of powerful singing with three of North America's best activist folk singers: Charlie King, Annie Patterson, with Colleen Kattau opening the show! Charlie and Annie 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. They are being joined for this concert by Colleen on the final stop of this tour.

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. This concert also celebrates the 100th anniversary of Pete Seeger's birth this spring.

Annie, Charlie, and Colleen will be performing together on Sunday, March 31st at the ArtRage Gallery in Syracuse. Note that this is a 3:00 pm show!

Advance tickets are available now for $18. Tickets at the door are $20. No one turned away for lack of funds. Under 18 free. (Note: if you buy a ticket or CD now there will be a "will call" list at the door when you arrive.)


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. She is an accomplished performer of traditional Appalachian & Celtic music as well as singer songwriter material that touches on a wide range of issues facing our world today.

Colleen is a bilingual vocalist, guitarist and composer of songs. Her poetic originals, passionate convictions, and charismatic stage presence inspire hope and imagination! She brings superb vocal, instrumental, and audience engagement skills to every concert!
