PMN Member Notes is where PMN members can post information that they wish to share with other members and the general public. This is a great way to share news about an album project, the release of a new single, or even an upcoming social justice music event.  Posts that are kept to a 470 character and one URL limit will also be re-posted to the PMN Facebook Page if they are relevant to PMN's mission: "sustaining and growing a diverse community of performing artists, activists, and allies who use music, poetry, and other art forms as catalysts for a just and peaceful world."  Posts not adhering to this limit are allowed, but they are not re-posted to Facebook.  Your participation in this collective information sharing effort will help PMN expand our social media reach and draw attention to your individual project.

Keep in mind that in addition to relevance, as we develop PMN Member Notes section, we may have to review the frequency of posts.  We will start by limiting posts to not more than once every two month per member.  This is subject to change.  Meanwhile if you're doing something the Community should know about, post to member notes!

    Charlie King & Rick Burkhardt – PMN Artists in Residence for the 2018 Winter Gathering in Boston – are doing a tour of Southern New England and NYC. Both are award winning songwriters and performers who bring to social commentary a passion for comic insight and a well-turned phrase. Edgy harmonies, incendiary lyrics, powerful instrumentation and theatrical hijinks!

    Rick Burkhardt is an Obie-award-winning playwright, composer, director, songwriter, and accordionist for The Prince Myshkins. His plays have been produced by New York Theater Workshop, LaMama, and the American Repertory Theater. He is joined by vocalist/harmonist extraordinaire Jermaine Golden.

    Charlie King is a songwriter, musical storyteller and political satirist. He has been at the heart of American folk music for more than half a century & is the 2017 recipient of the Phil Ochs Award. His songs have been recorded and sung by Pete Seeger, Holly Near, Ronnie Gilbert, John McCutcheon, Arlo Guthrie, Peggy Seeger, and Chad Mitchell.
