“I’ve been comforting the afflicted and afflicting the comfortable since 1968,” says the Pittsburgh-based Feeney.

“It has been my privilege to spend most of my waking hours with people who are trying to make a difference in the world… people on strike, or in a union or community organizing drive, or defending women’s rights, the environment, human rights… working to end poverty and racism… teaching peace.”

The January 31st concert is sponsored by the awesome Triangle (N.C.) Raging Grannies, who performed at our Pots & Spoons Protest in 2012.
