Join folk singers Anne Feeney and Evan Greer on April 17 at the Polish Club Hall, 823 W. First St. in Aberdeen, as they commemorate the legacy of Pete Seeger. Greer and Feeney have both shared stages multiple times with Seeger. They are now traveling around the Northwest performing folk songs. The two have been touring together for more than a decade.
This all-ages show costs $10. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the concert begins at 7 p.m.
Based in Pittsburgh, Feeney is the granddaughter of an intrepid mineworkers’ organizer. Since 1991, she has traveled to 42 states, as well as Canada, Mexico, Denmark, Ireland and Sweden. Her anthem, “Have You Been to Jail for Justice?” was recorded twice by Peter, Paul and Mary. Pete Seeger himself has congratulated her on her “fine songwriting.” Anne has played for crowds of thousands and shared the stage with Utah Phillips, Peggy Seeger, Dan Bern, Billy Bragg, Peter, Paul & Mary, and of course, Pete Seeger.
Greer is a multi-instrumentalist who writes original songs that inspire hope and incite resistance. Equally at home leading sing-a-longs in a union hall or sweating at a basement punk show, he has had songs featured on NPR, in college courses and independent films. At 28 years old, Greer tours internationally as a musician and facilitates workshops and trainings. He has shared stages with Billy Bragg, Immortal Technique, Gil Scott Heron’s Midnight Band and Holly Near.
