Rise Up Singing - Montréal

Annie Patterson & Peter Blood, the creators of Rise Up Singing and their 2015 sequel Rise Again are coming to Montréal! This will be a singalong concert with Annie & Peter performing and leading songs out of Rise Again. 

We are sharing this concert with Tony Turner - winner of the 2015 Spirit of Folk award for his timely "Harperman" hit.

This concert will celebrate the life & work of Pete Seeger (next year will be the 100th anniversary of his birth) and the many great musicians working to build a better world through music. Seeger worked closely with Annie & Peter in bringing their songbooks to birth and asked Peter to edit his autobiography, Where Have All the Flowers Gone: A Singalong Memoir.

The artists will be teaching and leading songs out of Rise Again during the concert. If you have a copy of Rise Again, bring it with you. Copies will be available to borrow or buy at the concert.

This a chance to meet the people who "wrote the book" and experience group singing with two of North America's most widely loved songleaders.

This concert is a benefit for NDG Food Depot The mission of this nonprofit is to reduce the hardship of living in poverty by:
