Apr 26, 2019: House concert with Tom Neilson

Looking ahead, please mark your calendar for an amazing house concert next April!  Singer, songwriter, guitarist, and lifelong activist Tom Neilson was born on a dairy farm in upstate New York, and has traveled and lived around the world while organizing against wars, pipelines, and other forms of injustice (and often making music).

Winner of the Kerrville Folk Festival, The Great Labor Arts Award, and the People's Choice Song of the Year (among others), and a nominee for the UN Nelson Mandela Award for Lifetime Achievement in Peace and Justice.  

This is very good music and very good politics.
                                                   --Tom Paxton 

One of the savviest songwriters I know.

                                     --World Soul Records

Politically cutting-edge, warm, & very funny; Raucous satire & quick wit  
                 -- Cathy Gilbert, Miami Dade Greens

Skewers the behavior of the greedy & powerful in the media, corporations & government.  
                              -- People’s Voice Café,  NYC

A global sophistication put into extraordinary performance art!
--Kathy Hersh, Miami Friends

...Reminding people of what is really important, and the power of folk music to say it.
