Celebrating Pete Seeger's Centennial. Pete Seeger was born on May 3rd, 1919. He spent his life working for a better world through song. Join us for an evening that honors his work and carries on the tradition of singing for justice and resilience.


Songleader/performer. This concert features Annie Patterson, song leader extraordinaire, folk performer, and jazz vocalist. Annie has been performing and leading singing for hope and change around the globe for over 30 years with Rise Up Singing and Rise Again, the popular group singing songbooks she created with her husband, Peter Blood.

Singalong concert. The evening will feature performances from Annie, but the audience will also be encouraged to join in singing together out of If I Had a Hammer, a new collection of songs that Pete Seeger wrote or was great at performing and leading. Annie created this songbook especially to honor the 100th anniversary of Pete Seeger's birth. Copies will be available to borrow or buy at the concert. (You can pre-order a copy of the book on this webpage and pick it up at the concert.)

Admission / Tickets. Admission for this concert will be for a "pay as led" donation to the artist (Annie) with a portion of proceeds benefiting the Brethren & Mennonite Heritage Center. The suggested donation will be $15-20. No one will be turned away for lack of funds. (Be generous! Be affordable!) Under 18 admitted free.

Space in this venue is limited, so we recommend that you reserve space now by registering on the Sing Me High Coffeehouse event page for this concert.
