Hey folks. For years my friend Anne Feeney has been waking and shaking people up by writing and performing incredible songs for working folks. She's a bona fide badass.
For the past few years, she has been battling serious cancer. She's fighting hard and doing really well, but she can't take her show on the road as much as she used to. Obviously, this affects her bottom line financially and it also means that fewer people are able to hear her songs, which I believe the world needs more than ever right now.
To address both problems, her sneaky and talented daughter Amy Sue Berlin has spent the past 8 months secretly putting together a surprise tribute album named after Anne's song War on the Workers. It's been an impressive undertaking to behold, and I'm so proud of what she put together; the record came out yesterday accompanied by a sterling write-up in The Huffington Post.
I encourage you to check out the article and download the whole record on Bandcamp.
Lest I fail to mention, the music is great - Eric Schwartz's version of Rebuild America/Keep Hope Alive just brought me to tears (I'm even willing to risk him making fun of me later for saying that :-). Dan Bern and Peter Yarrow from Peter, Paul and Mary contributed tracks, as well as a number of other incredibly talented musicians.
Great music for wrapping presents and plotting revolution.
