Justice for All Tour

With all of the serious challenges facing our country and world right now, we have decided to focus our main work on building resilience and resistance through our music.

As part of this work we have planned a "Justice for All" Tour across the Northeast with Lea Gilmore, a activist and singer who did a benefit concert with us last fall for Tubman House in Baltimore.

All of these concerts are being sponsored by a variety of faith congregations and social justice organizations in their areas as a way of standing nin solidarity with immigrants, women, People of Color, LGBTQ communities and others being threatened by new federal policies and leaders.

We hope you will join with us in using song to build the resistance to these challenges.

The tour consists of events in:

Brattleboro VT area - Friday, Mar 31st  (with Guilford Church Choir and House Blend)

Amherst MA - Sat, April 1st (with Amherst Area Gospel Choir)

Manchester NH - Sun, April 2nd

Providence RI   Moses Brown Friends School - Tues, April 4th

Ithaca NY - Friday, April 7th

Brooklyn NY - Sat, April 8th (with Brooklyn Women's Chorus)

Lea Gilmore is a terrific blues-gospel-jazz singer and activist - who has lent her voice, literally and figuratively, to advocacy for the underserved of the world for many years. www.leagilmore.com

We will be accompanied by award-winning blues pianist Professor Louie at the first 4 concerts and David Keyes in Brooklyn (who frequently accompanied Odetta before her passing).

We look forward to hearing about the ways you are using music and group singing to keep your hope and determination strong.
