Pittsburgh-based agitator Anne Feeney performs music designed to “comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable.” For the past 35 years she has lived her life on the front lines, performing at thousands of demonstrations, rallies and picket lines.

Anne Feeney has been called “the best labor singer in North America” by Utah Phillips, and “a catalyst in the topical song movement” by Peggy Seeger. Please come, enjoy the music and spread the word.
