with Ben GrosscupFolk/Traditional
With biting lyrics and powerful delivery, activist folksinger, Ben Grosscup, will play two sets addressing climate justice, anti-racism, healthcare, war, worker & immigrant rights, and revolution. His music pulls at the heart and provokes laughter and critical conversation. He directs People’s Music Network, founded by Pete Seeger -- a diverse community of singers, artists, activists and allies cultivating music and cultural work as catalysts for a just and peaceful world.
Between sets we’ll show a 35-minute film – "The War of 33: Letters from Beirut” – a personal and powerful portrayal of the 2006 war in Lebanon.
Fred Nagel opens for Ben. Ellen Davidson accompanies Ben on some songs.
