About the performers

Anne Feeney
Based in Pittsburgh, PA, Anne Feeney is the granddaughter of an intrepid mineworkers' organizer, who also used music to carry the message of solidarity to working people. After two decades of community activism and regional performances at rallies, Anne took her message on the road. Since 1991 Anne has traveled to the frontlines in 42 states, as well as Canada, Mexico, Denmark, Ireland and Sweden. Her anthem "Have You Been to Jail for Justice?" is being performed by activists everywhere, and was recorded twice by Peter, Paul and Mary. Dubbed the "minister of culture" to the movements for economic and social justice and human rights, Anne is "the best labor singer in North America" according to Utah Phillips, and Pete Seeger himself has congratulated on her “fine songwriting.” Anne has played for crowds of thousands and shared the stage with legends like Utah Phillips, Peggy Seeger, Dan Bern, Billy Bragg, Peter, Paul & Mary, and of course, Pete Seeger.

Evan Greer

Evan Greer is an LGBTQ parent, organizer, and multi-instrumentalist who writes fearless and dangerously catchy original songs that inspire hope and incite resistance. Equally at home leading singalongs in a union hall or sweating at a basement punk show, Evan has developed a cult following across North America and Europe, and has had songs featured on NPR, in college courses and major independent films. At 28 years old, Evan tours internationally as a musician and facilitates workshops and trainings to support movements for justice and liberation. Howard Zinn called Greer “an eloquent and energetic writer,” who “reminds me of Phil Ochs." Evan has shared stages with artists as musically diverse as Billy Bragg, Immortal Technique, Gil Scott Heron’s Midnight Band, Holly Near, Against Me!, The Coup, Pamela Means, State Radio, and Chumbawamba. Tom Morello, guitarist of Rage Against the Machine writes, "Evan Greer continues to write inspiring folk music in the tradition of the great protest singers ... a heck of a guitar player."
