George Mann sings songs from the last century of labour and social activism, and his own songs are powerful and funny takes on the state of his nation.
His concerts are part sing-a-long, part history lesson, and he can make you shout for joy, send chills down your spine or bring tears to your eyes in the same set.
George created and produced the 'Hail to the Thief!' anti-Bush CD series, which features such folk legends as Tom Paxton, Utah Phillips and Billy Bragg, and his work with veterans, unions and anti-war groups has kept him on the front lines for 20 years.
He has been touring Australia each of the past six years, bringing songs and stories of workers and struggle to folk audiences and festivals.
In 2010, George produced a compilation CD, 'Until You Come Home: Songs for Veterans and their Kin', about the effects of war on soldiers, familes, and the innocent.
His newest CD 'Portraits' was released in 2015 and he will be singing songs from that album and many classics, including songs to honour Joe Hill was executed 100 years ago.
