Charlie and Annie - Toledo
Join us for an evening of powerful singing with two of North America's best 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.
Annie & Charlie are coming to Toledo on Wednesday, March 27th at St Paul's United Methodist Church. Admission is for a suggested donation of $10 but no one should stay away for lack of funds.
This concert is a benefit for Marketplace for All People - a free store where people can share gifts and resources with each other such as clothing, household items as well as a food pantry and place where people can hang out with others from the community. This is a ministry of St Paul's Church.
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.
