About Charlie King and Karen Brandow:
"Exactly what folk music should be: songs that make you think, laugh, weep and dance."
-- Matt Watroba, Folk DJ WDET, Detroit MI
"One of the finest singers and songwriters of our time."
-- Pete Seeger
Charlie King has been at the heart of U.S. folk music for 35 years his songs have been sung by Holly Near, Ronnie Gilbert, Arlo Guthrie and Pete Seeger.Ê Karen Brandow has been performing with him since 1998, adding to their repertoire Spanish songs that she learned while doing human rights work in Guatemala. In addition to a full time career of concert touring, King and Brandow have sung in support of numerous groups working for peace, human rights, environmental sanity and alternatives to violence.
About The Prince Myshkins:
"A rare combination of biting satire and great musicianship. Hysterical send-ups of current political and social issues to remarkably catchy and well-written tunes."
-- Twiggs Green Room
The Prince Myshkins (Rick Burkhardt accordion, and Andy Gricevich, guitar) have been working together since 1995. Rick and Andy are masters of songwriting, poetry, and theater, and are both eager performers of contemporary classical music for anyone willing to listen.
I saw both groups sing in November at the School of the Americas protest at Fort Benning. I loved their music. We are so glad to be able to have them perform at our house. Hope you can join us.

An international conference to examine institutional religion's complicity in violence and to explore peaceful means of resolution begins at USC on Monday May 5 and runs through Wednesday May 7.
In spite of institutional religion's complicity in violence many members of religious traditions are moved, precisely because of those traditions, to work for justice and reconciliation between peoples who are otherwise divided. This conference will examine how and why this is so.
Join ICUJP for a discussion on the work of making our way beyond violence.
