Three dynamic young performers (Jeremy Aaron, Joshua Garcia, Kirsten Maxwell) will join three longtime Peoples’ Voice Cafe veterans (Bev Grant, Anne Price, Professor Louie) in a special benefit concert to support the People’s Music Network and the Peoples’ Voice Cafe. PMN grew out of a retreat for progressive political singer-songwriters that Charlie King called in 1977. PVC was founded two years later by several PMN activists who lived in the New York metro area. Now in their fourth decade, both groups need your support to continue their mission.
The six performers have generously donated their time and talent, so 100% of the proceeds will be shared equally by PMN and PVC. Please contribute what you can to keep PMN & PVC strong and vital. Both PMN & PVC are 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit organizations.
Jeremy Aaron is a singer, storyteller, community organizer, bluesman, poet, guitarist, violinist, and the creator of Greenwich Village Showcase. Warm and real, his music evokes nights around the campfire with old friends.jeremyaaron.com
Joshua Garcia is a folksinger / songwriter influenced by his heroes Woody Guthrie, Bob Dylan, and Johnny Cash. Born and raised in Los Angeles, Joshua now lives in Astoria, Queens. A firm believer in “the album” as an artistic format, Joshua is currently recording his first CD.
Influenced by Joni Mitchell and Gordon Lightfoot, Kirsten writes sweet, intimate songs about love and longing. She won first place in the Rhode Island Songwriters Association contest. Her first album is Crimson.
Bev is a folk veteran, a topical songwriter with heart and edge, telling stories that celebrate South African grandmothers on a soccer team, or a solitary old man who won’t leave his West Virginia mountaintop.
Anne Price sings many songs from folk-based songwriters, such as Jean Ritchie, Peggy Seeger, Woody Guthrie, Si Kahn, and many others, and she writes a few fine songs of her own.
Professor Louie performs at meetings, rallies, benefits and demonstrations in Russia, Australia, China, Europe and the USA. He raps hard-hitting, punchy songs about race, class, injustice, and rising up.
