Charlie King is a musical storyteller and political satirist who sings and writes passionately about the extraordinary lives of ordinary people, in the tradition of Woody Guthrie, Malvina Reynolds, and Pete Seeger (see charlieking.org). Charlie has performed in Ann Arbor since 1979 and won the Phil Ochs Award for music and activism in 2017. Pete Seeger called Charlie “one of the finest singers and songwriters of our time.
Annie Patterson is the co-creator of the popular songbooks “Rise Up Singing” and “Rise Again.” She is a master song interpreter and accompanies herself on guitar and banjo.
Concert proceeds benefit the Interfaith Council for Peace & Justice. Founded in 1965, ICPJ centers racial and economic justice as we address the root causes of violence from oppression, poverty, environmental devastation, patriarchy, and war. We wage love and practice nonviolence in all its forms through education, community organizing, advocacy, and direct action. We unite across our differences and empower leadership in people to create the change we need for a more peaceful and just world.
Masks are required for in-person attendees, and online streaming is also available.
