Songs of Hope & Courage - Harrisonburg
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.)
