Hi All

I'm packed for the People's Music Network annual Winter Gathering -- this year in New York City. It's a terrific gathering of friends and artists all committed to social change.  I'm just back from a breathtaking two weeks in Ecuador with my son  Dan and his wife Monique.  We had a great visit, and they gave me some great news!  Everyone who has endured my endless cooing over babies in restaurants (or anywhere else) knows how totally overjoyed I am to finally be an expectant grandmother! Dan and Monique are expecting in late August/early September -  Monique may have to hear all the "Labor" Day jokes I heard when I was expecting my lovely Amy, born September 1, 1981.

And I just finished recording and mastering a two CD set of Irish music.  More than two dozen Irish songs appear on this set, which is a compilation, a retrospective AND features a half dozen brand new recordings!
ENCHANTED WAY will be available in early March, and I'm taking pre-orders.  Send $20 to Anne Feeney, 2240 Milligan Ave, Pittsburgh, PA  15218 and the double CD will be on its way to you the moment it's ready!  Recording engineer extraordinaire Doug Wilkin is also lending his considerable musical talent to this production.  It features a lot of fabulous Irish musicians - Bruce Foley, Kip Ruefle, Bob Banerjee, Sheila Liming, Sean McClorey, Bob Pegritz and many many more.My dear friend Randy McSorley is doing the artwork for this recording, as he has for "Dump the Bosses Off Your Back" and "If I Can't Dance."

This month's news will be shorter than usual... I've got to get this CD finished and pack for all my upcoming adventures.  Suffice it to say that I am sickened by the last two SCOTUS (Supreme Court of the United States) decisions expanding "corporate personhood" and unrestricted government surveillance.

If you're on the left coast, I need your help with an upcoming date.

Thanks for your steadfast support of my music and my work...

See you soon!





You've heard me talk about what a great company CDBaby is.  They treat their artists, their workers, and their customers really well.  And now, in response to the terrible earthquake in Haiti, CDBaby is donating $1 for every CD sold to Haitian earthquake relief.  This is a great time to stock up on my titles... Visit now!  Their generous offer continues through Feb 7th, and could well mean over $1,000,000 in donations to Haiti.


Be the first to order my new double cd "Enchanted Way" featuring two dozen Irish tunes... love songs, drinking songs, silly songs, rebel songs... a fine assortment of all of the above and much much more... including 6 new recordings, and ten more never before released on CD.  Send $20 to:

Anne Feeney
2240 Milligan Ave
Pittsburgh,  PA 15218

This CD probably won't ship until the beginning of  March... but your early support for the project is most appreciated!


I'm still looking for somewhere to do a Valentine's Day show... I'm in Vancouver, BC on the 13th and West Seattle on the 15th... sooooooooooooo.... Port Townsend, Port Angeles, Orcas, Sequim, even Tacoma... how about it? Can I be your Valentine?

I'm also fondly hoping for an LA area show on February 28th... and I still have a few holes in my March tour of FL... March 25-28 in South Florida anywhere would be most appreciated!


I'll be touring the midwest in April with the amazing Evan Greer.  We'll be doing a lot of college work, but we'll have our evenings free.  If you'd be interested in hosting us in April, let me know ... I'll tell you what dates we have available near you.


Thanks to all of you who sent contributions and letters of support to Laborers' Local 231 on strike in Pekin, IL against PAL orthotics.  The members are in the process of voting on a contract that will put everyone back to work, send the scabs packing, offer good raises and improved work rules.  It's so wonderful to hear some good news!  It's proof that if we fight like hell and stick together.... we WIN!


In my not-so-copious spare time I'm trying to pick through the best of my Ecuador photos.  I've posted the keepers at  - check them out!

Many of you Kerrville Folk Festival-goers will recognize Guntram Gudowius.  He bicycled to the 1989 Kerrville Folk Festival from somewhere up in Vermont and was a festival regular for a number of years. Guntram is back in Berlin, but we stay in touch.  He sends his warmest regards to all his US friends and hopes to see us at Kerrville again this year.  I expect to be at the festival for all 18 days (except that I'll fly up to Long Island to perform at a conference at Stonybrook June 3-5 and then come right back to the festival.)
