How Sweet It Is: a Benefit Singalong Concert with Annie Patterson & friends.
Join Annie Patterson in singing along on “Great American Songbook” standards like “You Belong to Me” and “Penny’s from Heaven”, Broadway show tunes, Motown hits, and folk favorites.
This is a great chance to celebrate love and hope – and to stengthen the bonds of community and resilience among us in these challenging times – and to support the new Resistance Center for Peace & Justice www.theresistancecenter.org/.
Annie is the co-creator (with her husband Peter Blood) of the well-loved songbooks Rise Up Singing and its sequel Rise Again.
She will be joined by bassist and jazz vocalist, Mary Witt of The O-Tones along with Jim Henry on guitar, mandolin and dobro. Jim has performed with a wide range of A-list musicians including Mary Chapin Carpenter, Alison Krauss, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, and Los Lobos (among many others!) www.jimhenry.net/ Annie sings on several tracks of Mary’s highly regarded “Groove Duets” CD.
Tickets ordered here will be for a “will call list”. On the night of the concert admission will be for a suggested donation of $15-25. (“Be generous! Be affordable!”) No one will be turned away for inability to pay. The concert is a benefit for The Resistance Center.
If you have a copy of Rise Again already, bring it with you. Copies will also be available to borrow or buy at the concert (you can also pre-order a copy on this webpage).
