Rise Up and Sing!

A Celebration of Community Singing

Sunday, November 13th, 2016   3:00 p.m.

Iowa City/Johnson County Senior Center


Sunday, November 29th, 2016   3:00 p.m.

U of I Old Capitol Building Senate Chamber

The Family Folk Machine presents “Rise Up and Sing! A Celebration of Community Singing” at 3 p.m. Nov. 13 at the Senior Center, and 3 p.m. Nov. 20 in the Senate Chamber of the Old Capitol on the University of Iowa campus.

The program is a loving tribute to the new songbook “Rise Again,” edited by Peter Blood and Annie Patterson who brought us the original “Rise Up Singing” in the 1980s. The two songbooks together are a fantastic resource for folk and popular music in our country and beyond. The Folk Machine concert will highlight some of the songs from the new book that are particularly suited to our mission, to group expression and to singing in harmony.

We hope to see you at our November concerts!
