George Mann sings songs from the last century of labor and social activism, and his own songs are powerful and funny takes on the state of the nation. His concerts are part singalong, part history lesson, and he can make you shout for joy, send chills down your spine or bring tears to your eyes in the same set.

George created and produced the "Hail to the Thief!" anti-Bush CD series, which featured such folk legends as Tom Paxton, Utah Phillips, Billy Bragg and Magpie, and his work with veterans, unions and anti-war groups has kept him on the front lines for 20 years. He produced a new compilation CD, "Until You Come Home: Songs for Veterans and their Kin" and his latest solo CD, "Songs for Jules and Bruce," was released last year.

George will present a program of song and narrative, "200 Years of Struggle in Song," in the first hour, and sing many songs from the catalogue of folk and labor music in this concert. Come on down!
