George Mann & Rik Palieri (US) come to Humph Hall

An evening of music from the US labour movement

George Mann & Rik Palieri

George Mann sings songs from the last century of labour and social activism in the USA. His own songs are powerful and funny takes on the state of the nation. He has shared stages with Pete Seeger, Utah Phillips and Faith Petric, among others, and his compilations have featured such folk legends as Tom Paxton, Utah Phillips, Billy Bragg and Holly Near.

Rik Palieri, friend and protege of Pete Seeger, is a talented singer, songwriter & multi-instrumentalist. In a typical performance Rik will frail the banjo, stomp out a blues on guitar, spin out a wild and woolly story, pluck out a tune on the mouth bow, play a melody on the Native American flute and end the evening with an original yodel-sing-a-long! Watch a 1999 YouTube clip of Pete Seeger performing with Rik on Rik's TV Show 'The Song Writer's Notebook'.

Suggested donation: ($25/$15).
