MAY/JUNE 2017: Anne Feeney's Fellow Travelers' Advisory, Volume 11, Number 2

Welcome to the May/June edition of the Fellow Travelers' Advisory.  This is the best way that I know to keep in touch with all the folks I know.  I'm so grateful to all the friends, family, followers, folkies and fellow travelers who support my work and make my life possible. The "reply" function works, so please let me know what you're up to - especially if you have news my 10,000 subscribers would be interested in.  For example, last month my faithful subscriber and dear friend Barbara Lebeau suggested larger type - VOILA!

Maryellen Deckard showed me how to enlarge any type that is too small on a PC laptop - Just down the button  with the windows logo on it adjacent to the space bar while pressing the + key.  To return, press the "-"  key (otherwise known as the hyphen).  If you know the keystrokes for Apple laptops, let me know.

As you can see from my tour schedule below, it's going to be a busy summer starting in FIVE DAYS -  If you're in or around Austin at 3PM on Sunday, May 21st, make a beeline to the air-conditioned Saxon Pub.  I played there first in 1990! This time I'll be joined by FABULOUS musicians who played on my new benefit/tribute CD 'WAR ON THE WORKERS' - available for purchase or download at cdbaby.com/all/unionmaid  Join me, the Hot Nut Riveters, Oliver Steck and more at 3PM, Sunday March 21, at the Saxon Pub!  You'll leave energized, inspired and uplifted!!!

2017 will be a challenging year for us all.  Fortunately, I get to keep doing what I have always been doing - raising hell, bearing witness, speaking truth to power and singing through the storm.  I hope to see a lot of you out there doing the same!

Don't forget to support the Utah Phillips Library - https://www.generosity.com/education-fundraising/utah-phillips-flanger-railroad-car-restoration

If you've checked out http://annefeeney.com lately, you'll see it's wildly different and under construction.  I could really use some help with it.  Let me know if you can help.

I'm including a new feature to improve my show.  I've gotten a holder that will display my backlit lyrics on my iPad so that I can jettison all my patter about forgetting lyrics and just sing the songs!  This too has a steep learning curve for me, so if anyone coming to Kerrville knows about iPads and Forscore, PLEASE help me to get this system up and runing!

Hope to see you somewhere on my Summer of Resistance tour! If you don't live in any of the cities I'm performing, I bet you know someone who does!  Please forward this newsletter to your friends. That's how it works.  You can be certain that your friends will not hear about these shows from my corporate sponsors  The calendar updates continuously at http://annefeeney.com/calendar.html

Thanks for your help, loyalty and support.  I couldn't do this without you.
