Annie Patterson & Charlie King Midwest Tour - 2022

Charlie King and Annie Patterson are hitting the road again in October with a 9 city tour of the Midwest in October 2022.

These are challenging times in many ways. Live concerts can really help lift people's spirits, build community, and increase people's resilience to keep up their work to address the many challenges facing our communities, nation, and world!  They are excited to have the chance to perform in person again! COVID precautions will be in effect. Please mask for safety. (In Madison, masks are encouraged but not required.) 

Note: The only hybrid (live + Zoom) concert Charlie & Annie are doing is at Ann Arbor on Sat. Oct 22nd. In addition Annie's solo concert in Bloomington on Wed Oct 19 will be hybrid.

Charlie’s wry political satire and his uncanny ability to find endearing songs about struggle and the human experience are a natural fit with Annie's own performing and sing-along work.  Charlie and Annie have often recorded &vaguelyrem@aol.com performed together, including Annie's vocals on Charlie's 2017 CD "Life & Love, Tears & Laughter". They released a live album "Step by Step" early in 2019 and are taking this and a hatful of new songs on the road.
