Kingston Chapter: Ben Grosscup
May 7, 2022 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
BEN GROSSCUP sings about the ideas and values of the revolutionary social movements he’s part of. Drawing upon activist folk singing traditions, he brings new songs to the rallies, strikes, picket lines, and virtual events where they’re most relevant. He leads purposeful group singing that raises political consciousness. https://www.youtube.com/c/
Ben is executive director of The People’s Music Network for Songs of Freedom and Struggle, a diverse community of singers, artists, and activists that cultivates music and cultural work as catalysts for a just and peaceful world.

Music starts at 7:30, but if you arrive at 7:00 you can spend some time catching up with friends, helping each other sound check, and just generally enjoying the mellow Folk Guild vibe.
Andy Shapiro will be the Zoom maestro, so if you’re a musician and you’re planning to perform, let Andy know as soon as you come in from the Waiting Room. He’ll get you into the next available slot. Everybody gets two songs or eight (8) minutes, whichever comes first.
