Labor/Antiwar Folksinger George Mann at Red and Black Cafe September 25

NYC-based George Mann brings a new concert program, "200 Years of Struggle in Song," to The Red and Black Cafe with special guests Jay Russo from "General Strike" and Rose Darke on Fiddle!

Sunday, September 25 at the RED and BLACK Cafe
400 SE 12th Avenue
7:00 PM

With special appearances by Rose Darke and Jay Russo

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!
