Charlie and Annie - Urbana

We’ve closed advance tickets but there are plenty of tickets at the door!Advance tickets: There will be a ”will-call” list at the door. No need to bring any receipt - just your name will do!

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. It also celebrates this year's 100th anniversary of Pete Seeger's birth.

Tickets are $18 in advance, $20 at the door. No one turned away for lack of funds.


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.
