Anne Feeney, self-described “unionmaid & hellraiser”, will be performing songs of labor and protest for the benefit of the Old Labor Hall. She will be joined by special guest Charlie King (who played at the Hall two years ago as part of the Joe Hill Roadshow).
We have been looking forward to hosting her at the hall for a long time.
The granddaughter of an intrepid mine workers’ union organizer, musician and activist Anne Feeney has carried her message of workers’ solidarity to the front lines in 40 states, Canada, Mexico, Ireland, and Sweden.
Anne has won the Kerrville New Folk Competition and is the only woman ever elected President of the Pittsburgh Musicians’ Union. Her song “Have You Been to Jail for Justice?” has been recorded by Peter, Paul and Mary and was featured in the PBS-aired documentary “Get Up/Stand Up: The History of Pop and Protest.”
