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. He is part of the Joe Hill 100 Centenary committee and will be sharing songs and stories about the famed IWW organizer and songwriter Joe Hill, and the upcoming Joe Hill 100 Roadshow, which will roll through Oregon in November.
George created and produced the “Hail to the Thief!” anti-Bush CD series, which featured such folk legends as Tom Paxton, Utah Phillips, and Billy Bragg, and his work with unions, veterans and anti-war groups has kept him on the front lines for more than 25 years.
George returns to Southern Oregon with “Portraits,” a powerful new CD with 12 songs of courage and struggles. Come down for a night of folk songs and stories, friends and activists!
