Annie Patterson & Peter Blood: Rise Up Singing: Friday, April 13. Doors: 7:30pm. Show: 8:00. $20 / $15 students/seniors/wage-challenged
The creators of Rise Up Singing and their 2015 sequel Rise Again are coming to Hamilton! This will be a singalong concert with Annie & Peter performing and leading songs from Rise Again. Annie & Peter will be joined by beloved Canadian singer songwriter James Gordon, whose song “Frobisher Bay” is included in Rise Again.
This tour is a celebration of the life & work of Pete Seeger (born100 years ago next year), who worked closely with Annie & Peter on their books. A wide array of Pete Seeger CDs will be available as well as Seeger's autobiography (which Peter edited). Copies of Annie & Peter's songbooks will be available to borrow or buy at the concert.
· This is a chance to meet the people who "wrote the book" and experience group singing with two of North America's most widely loved songleaders.
Annie is a widely respected folk and jazz performer and recording artist. Playlist on Youtube.
· Praise for Annie's performances
· Rise Up Singing has created a quiet revolution in group singing across North America with a million copies in print. Praise for RUS.
· Rise Again contains 1200 more songs (including many by Canadian singer songwriters) in the same format as RUS. Praise for Rise Again.
