Hope & Courage - Austin
Annie Patterson & Peter Blood, the creators of the songbooks Rise Up Singing and Rise Again, are coming to Austin!
They will be teaching and leading songs from their new songbook Rise Again in a benefit concert for Interfaith Action of Central Texas (iACT).
This is a wonderful opportunity to meet the couple who "wrote the book" (the best-selling group singing collection Rise Up Singing) as well as building community and celebrating the work being done to build resilience and resistance in these challenging times.
Buy tickets now on this page or at the door. Admission at the door will be for a suggested donation of $15-25 for adults and $5 for children ("Be generous! Be affordable!") No one turned away for lack of funds.
If you would enjoy a more intimate opportunity to hang out and share with / learn from Annie and Peter, there will also be a workshop in the afternoon at the same location on using music to build community and struggle.
Copies of Rise Again (the sequel to Rise Up Singing which includes 1200 different songs) will be available to borrow or buy at the concert.
Annie & Peter will also be leading singalong performances during this trip to Texas in Houston on Friday 3/23, San Antonio on Wed 3/28, and during the annual regional gathering of Quakers on Friday 3/30 and Sat. 3/31.
