sharp, witty collage of folk, poetry & politics
The Flying Poetry Circus is coming to town! Renowned rabble-rouser and unionmaid Anne Feeney and acrobatic performance poet Chris Chandler roll up with their "metaphoric highwire act," a dynamic concoction of rousing music, "folken word" poetry, and humor that inspired the Boston Herald to call them "The most creatively radical performers on the coffee house circuit." Pittsburgh native Anne, who has spent decades putting her songs and body on the front line of the labor movement, possesses a seemingly limitless repertoire of activist songs that provides the musical counterpoint to Georgia-born Chris' vaudvillean presentation of beat poetry and road tales from his journeys. Celebrating the release of their new album, the aptly named Flying Poetry Circus, Anne and Chris present live their highly theatrical collage of songstress, southern preacher, and wandering minstrel show, all in the cause of working people's solidarity.
