Annie Patterson & Peter Blood, the creators of Rise Up Singing and their 2015 sequel Rise Again are coming to Guelph! This will be a singalong concert with Annie & Peter and special guests Sam Turton, James Gordon and Katherine Wheatley (all Guelphites who have songs in the book) performing and leading songs out of Rise Again.
This concert will celebrate the life & work of Pete Seeger (next year will be the 100th anniversary of his birth) and the many great musicians working to build a better world through music. Seeger worked closely with Annie & Peter in bringing their songbooks to birth. Peter also edited Seeger’s autobiography, Where Have All the Flowers Gone: A Singalong Memoir.
This is a chance to meet the people who “wrote the book” and experience group singing with two of North America’s most widely loved songleaders.
