In honor of Women's History Month, we put together the program "Working Women Sing! Unsung Heroines of the Western World." Edu-tainment to touch your soul and make you think. Come hear us and sing along at 2 pm Sunday, March 26th at the Hollywood Library, 4040 NE Tillamook, Portland, Oregon.
Songs by and/or about women of the Americas in Spanish, English and Quechua (the language of the Inka). Songwriters featured are: Violetta Parra, Holly Near, Malvena Reynolds, Bev Grant, Libby Roderick, myself, and others.
In this concert I play panpipes and sing. Singer songwriter Mary Rose and I have been rehearsing together for months, learning each other's songs. It is a great honor to perform with Mary Rose, who I consider a National Living Treasure. Her trio "Beyond Little Boxes" will back us up as well as perform some of their repertoire of Malvena Reynolds protest songs. Jim Cook plays stand up bass and sings. Mark Loring (of the famous folk music Loring family), plays mandolin. Singer Jane Keefer, a longtime collaborator of Mary Rose's, will join us in song.
I hope you will pass the word to your friends in Portland, and best of all, I hope you can come and sing along.
