June 2015 - Anne Feeney's Fellow Travelers' Advisory - Volume 10, Number One

A very busy 2015!!
friday the 17th we're in BEND at the UU Church
monday, the 20th, we're at the BLUE SCORCHER in ASTORIA


Hi there!

2015 is proving to be one of my busiest years ever! I hope to see all my Pacific Northwest friends, fan and family while I'm out there on this MOST EXCITING TOUR!!

The TEAMSTERS AND TURTLES, TOGETHER AT LAST!!!  (JULY 1-21) tour is something I've been thinking about ever since that phrase was coined during the SEATTLE PEOPLE'S UPRISING during the WTO Ministerial in November of '99.  I finally met my ideal tourmate for this adventure - the incomparable Dana Lyons.  Dana is one of the pre-eminent environmental songwriters in North America - and his material has that hilarious sardonic edge that I admire so much.  (His music can also be quite moving.) He's the perfect musical partner to demonstrate how much the labor movement has in common with the environmental movement. Our 21 day tour will cover the Pacific Northwest.
-- We just added JULY 17th in BEND, OR -

All the details are at http://annefeeney.com/calendar.html -  It's always a good idea to check with the venue to make certain that all my details are correct.


IRELAND 2016!  THE EASTER RISING!

2016 is going to be a fantastic year in Ireland.  It's the 100th anniversary of the Easter Uprising. This led to Irish independence.

Join me in Ireland in April 2016.  The exact dates are not confirmed yet, but Paddy Downes will be our driver.  We will stay in small privately owned hotels for three day stretches whenever possible.  Our tour will take in some of the most beautiful sights in Ireland, the best music, as well as some of the most moving sites in Irish history.  If April 16-25th sounds good to you, let me know asap.  That is what I'm working toward. Respond to this email if you are interested.  




This is the busiest year I've had in a while.  After finishing the Midwest Leg of the JOE HILL 100 Roadshow, my friend and comrade Jan Hammarlund and I did a few MALVINA REYNOLDS UNCOVERED SHOWS to widespread acclaim. I'll be doing some Swedish touring in September.

They'll be joining us on July 19th in Portland at the Alberta Rose Theater

May 2015 - Anne Feeney's Fellow Travelers' Advisory - Volume 9, Number 12

Hi there 


Gosh, I can't believe that I haven't written to you since last September!  For nine years I didn't miss a single month of the Fellow Travelers' Advisory (well - almost nine - this is Volume 9, Number 12).  Next month, when I begin my tenth year as your more faithful correspondent, I promise to do a better job. There are lots of exciting events coming up, and you can find out about them here. I'm writing to you from beautiful Costa Rica, where my sister Kathleen has lived for over a year now. She is taking a master's degree in International Law and Human Rights  at the University for Peace in Ciudad Colon.

Fellow Travelers' Advisory Volume One #1 was published on April 4, 2005.  They are all archived here: http://fellow-travelers-advisory.blogspot.com/ blogspot - There are even some wonderful "Muse and Whirled Retorts" archived there from my wild,wooly, whimsical performing partner, poet Chris Chandler.

Before I start with all my exciting upcoming plans, I want to at least tip my hat to 2014 -
a wonderful year.

First, overall my health was great throughout 2014, and it still is.  I spend a lot more time than I would like with doctors and getting MRIs and CTs,  Except for occasional bouts of dizziness and fatigue it's all good.

Second, the tour to Ireland for the Spirit of Mother Jones Festival was terrific.  I'm planning another one for the summer of 2016.  I'll have the dates soon.  We had a fabulous group of people, as we always do, and I had so much fun introducing my activist friends to each other, and to the rich progressive culture of Ireland.

Here's our merry group:
 Maya Conn, Anne FeeneyPaddy Downes, Mark Schneider, Jane DoyleJulien MinardMelodi Shapiro BrownJeff CrosbyJoan FriedenbergLaura Freeman, Dori Roche BinstedNina Fendel,Marjie Crosby, Dan Fendel, Dorrie Rosenblatt,  Sue Moore, Bonnie Coleman,  Laura Daniels Vickie HedianLeah Hoechstetter,Ray Owens and Martha Livingston in Dublin

.


Jackie Fralley, Charlie Bernhardt, Ray Korona, Anne Feeney, Pat Wynne, Chris Chandler, Bev Grant, Charlie King, Julius Margolin, Virginia Ortega Gray, George Mann, Pat Humphries, Francisco Herrera and Jon Fromer at the 2007 (?) Great Labor Arts Exchange, which returns to the site of the former George Meany Center - now the ROSA PARKS and TOMMY DOUGLAS CENTER for LABOR RENEWAL!!!

Feminist rock legend Bev Grant and I hatched a CA mini-tour in conjunction with her powerful show, "We Were There"  - which our dear comrade Chris Bricker produced in San Luis Obispo, and we reprised it in Santa Cruz thanks to Amy Newell and Louis LaFortune.

Pittsburgh musicians celebrated Pete Seeger's life, legacy and music on May 3rd

Over 1000 people tried to get a seat at the 800 seat capacity First Unitarian Church.

Our community really came together around music and the amazing person that Pete was.  

@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

Brad Yoder and I teamed up to travel to the Kerrville Folk Festival together, and we did a few shows on the way there and back..  Thanks to all our Cincinnati friends, Danny Yeager in College Station, Leslie Harris in Dallas,  Tim O'Connor in Oklahoma City and my new friends at the Blue Door, and the great Judy Ancel in Kansas City

Our friend in Dallas, Leslie Harris, taught us how to make a "Light Brigade."

a skill I quickly put to work in Pittsburgh with the help of the Amalgamated Transit Union:
