Don’t miss renowned labor singer Anne Feeney and riot-folk troubadour Evan Greer as their “Carry It On” Tour, a multigenerational activist music singalong honoring the legacy of Pete Seeger, arrives in Washington state. The tour opens tonight in Olympia at the Washington State Labor Council’s building at 9th and Columbia, with subsequent stops in Aberdeen, Port Angeles, Bellingham, Everett, Seattle and Tacoma (schedule below).

The rabble-rousing spirit of beloved protest singer Pete Seeger lives on, and Anne Feeney and Evan Greer are out to prove it. Audiences who attend the Carry it On tour will learn to expect the unexpected during high-energy concerts that feature music ranging from Irish ballads to union singalongs to political punk anthems. Greer and Feeney have both shared stages multiple times with Pete Seeger. Together they will carry on Pete’s legacy — harnessing the power of music for revolutionary social change, and making it irresistible for audiences to join in and sing along.
