The People’s Music Network for Songs of Struggle and Freedom will hold our Winter Gathering at the Greenfield Middle School in Greenfield, MA from January 23-25, 2015.
We will be carrying on the tradition of music for social change by bringing together musicians and activists with three days of concerts, songswaps, workshops, and a round robin. Expect lots of opportunities to share music and to collaborate on ways to bring music for progressive politics out into the world.
This gathering had been advertised as happening in Beacon, NY for months. We are moving it to Greenfield, MA, because after weeks of searching in Beacon, we were unable to find a place in Beacon that was affordable, wheelchair accessible, contained classrooms for workshops, and provided kitchen access. Kim and Reggie Harris will still be our artists in residence, as originally planned for 2015. (Details on the above flier will be updated shortly.)
We already have a great group of local musicians and activists getting involved with planning the program and logistics. Please contact Ben Grosscup <firstname.lastname@example.org> if you would like to get involved in the planning process.
Registration will open this October.
RSVP via facebook for the gathering.
