3.SOME UPDATES ON THE NEW ALBUM AND SUMMER TOUR
1.ANNE FEENEY ANTI-CANCER FUNDRAISER at Cafe Rhizome on Main Street, October 9th, 8pm admission by donation, all funds are for Anne Feeney hosted by JOEY ONLY and friends. Many of us in the activist community have benefited from Anne Feeney's 35 years as a radical folk singer. Now it's our turn to help Anne, she's at home and in hospital in Pittsburgh after being diagnosed with an 11CM tumor in her lungs. Currently Anne is in great need of financial help cause cancer aint cheap in America. Obviously this is very serious, Anne seems to be handling baldness quite well though!
I've had a the great fortune to spend a lot of time with Anne on the road and here in Vancouver, when I had tuberculosis she left all the money she made at our show in Vancouver behind for me before I could stop her. She has been so generous, now she needs our support and love. There aren't many like Anne out there, those who were like her had names like Utah Philips, Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger and Joe Hill...and their contributions to the movement and folk music were all huge.
