Irish Songs of Wonder, Emigration & Resistance

Come celebrate St Patrick's Day with Charlie King, Annie Patterson & Peter Blood at this singalong concert in the performance space at Best Video Cultural Center.

Charlie King is a beloved nationally known activist, satirist and singer songwriter whose 2 dozen CDs include the 1999 "Brilliant: Songs of Ireland" album.  He is this year's recipient of the Phil Ochs Award, in recognition of his music and activism for social and political justice in the spirit of Phil Ochs.

Annie Patterson & Peter Blood are the creators of Rise Up Singing and the 2015 sequel Rise Again.  Annie is an accomplished performer of traditional Appalachian & Celtic music. Peter Blood is the editor of Pete Seeger's autobiography Where Have All the Flowers Gone: A Singalong Memoir.

Tickets are available now on this website or at the door for a suggested donation of $10. (No one will be turned away for lack of funds.)

The concert will combine performance and group singing - many songs will include audience participation. Bring your copy of Rise Up Singing and/or Rise Again if you have one. Copies will also be available to borrow or buy at the concert.
