A gorgeous Michigan feathersky!
This update is for a late booking where I will be singing along with others. Anne Feeney is one of my dearest folk music friends and concertmates for more than 20 years. She has tirelessly advocated for peace and justice, worker's rights, healthcare and many other good causes all over the world with humour, grace and compassion. Now she is in Pittsburgh doing radiation treatment and has just finished another round of chemotherapy for a fast-growing tumour in her lungs. Her medical bills are understandably astronomical given the price of healthcare these days. So...
Saturday October 24, 7:30 pm, The Benefit for Anne Feeney is at the People's Church of Chicago, 941 W. Lawrence, Chicago. Performers include Al Day Trio, Amy Dixon-Kolar, Andrew Calhoun, Kristin Lems, Awesome Folk Band, Niki Leeman and Brian Cutean. Suggested donation is $10 but no one will be turned away for lack of dough re mi. All proceeds go directly to Anne for her health needs.
There's on street parking for people with cars, but meters need to be fed until 9 pm. The closest el stop is Lawrence on the red line, or the Lawrence Ave. bus that gets off right on that corner of Sheridan and Lawrence.
If you can't make the show but would like to contribute to Anne, send a check made out to ANNE FEENEY, c/o Rev. Jean Darling, The Peoples Church of Chicago, 941 W. Lawrence Ave., PO Box 408319, Chicago, IL 60640-8319. We will bundle them all together and get them to Anne the day after the show.
