MAGPIE’s Terry Leonino and Greg Artzner have been singing about unions and workers for their entire career. Pete Seeger called them “…more links in the chain,” dedicating their lives and music to leaving this world a better place. From Joe Hill and the Wobblies to the miners of Appalachia to Pete Seeger, Joe Glazer, and contemporary songs by themselves and fellow writers, Greg and Terry cover more than a century of labor song with power and authenticity.
A former union organizer and activist based in New York, George Mann sings songs from the last century of labor and social activism, and his own songs are powerful and funny takes on the state of the nation. His concerts are part sing-along, 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.
