“Phil Made Me Do It!”   Leave a comment

“The Sixth Annual Phil Ochs Celebration of Life” concert and fundraiser.
Saturday, April 9, 9-10:30 pm (PDT), Egan’s Ballard Jam House, Seattle

Phil Ochs-Kept Press-1969-2

April 9th will be the 40th anniversary of the death of arguably the most prolific and inspirational folksinger of the 60’s-70’s. Each April, for six straight years we come together at Egan’s to commemorate his death and celebrate his life and his work.

To further honor Phil, we use the occasion to raise funds and awareness for causes we deem worthy. For the second consecutive year all donations will go to our state’s farmworkers who are locked in a toxic struggle with agribusiness Sakuma Farms for a fair contract.

This year’s theme is “Phil Made Me Do It!”, featuring a multi-talented group of performers who were inspired by Phil and his tradtion to social activism through music. Each will perform some of their favorite Phil songs followed by examples of original and other songs of change.

Our Lineup:
~Linda Allen~
~Reggie Garrett~
~Casey Graham~
~Gary Kanter~
~Rebel Voices (Susan Lewis, Janet Stecher)~

$10 suggested donation at the door

Dinner and seating reservations are highly recommended as space is limited.
