Charlie King is a musical storyteller and political satirist. He has been at the heart of American folk music for half a century. He sings and writes passionately about the extraordinary lives of ordinary people. His songs have been sung by Pete Seeger, Holly Near, Ronnie Gilbert, John McCutcheon, Arlo Guthrie, Peggy Seeger, Chad Mitchell and Judy Small, to name a few. “With encouraging regularity, Charlie King emerges from his self-reflection to remind us of the happy resilience of the human spirit. His message songs vary between the funny and the frightening, but he pulls them off with unvarying taste, musical skill, and charm.”
“One of the finest singers and songwriters of our time.”
Now there's a writer! There's a powerful voice!. Somebody I deeply, deeply love. Charlie has motivated more young singers and songwriters into writing songs about social issues than any person on this planet that I know of. I admire him a great deal." Utah Phillips
"I am struck with the ease with which he can put a difficult technical subject into everyday language. If we had more Charlie Kings, I'd be less worried about the future of the world."
"What this world needs is Charlie King. Luckily, we have him!"
"Charlie's music could be the soundtrack to Howard Zinn's A People's History of the United States."
Harry Murray, Sociology Professor, Nazareth College, Rochester, NY

Bev Grant grew up singing and playing in Portland, Oregon, where she began her performing career as a child in a band with her two sisters. After moving to New York City, she devoted herself to topical songwriting and social activism, notably in her band The Human Condition. Bev is featured on the Grammy-nominated Best of Broadside album and is the founder and director of the Brooklyn Women’s Chorus. Her song “We Were There” has become an anthem of women in the labor movement, and many other of her award-winning songs can be found on her numerous recordings. Bev is currently working on a new CD which she hopes to release in 2016.
"Bev Grant still looks like a kid, but she has been a constant source of inspiration to me for almost 40 years... a brilliant feminist pioneer with a true rock and roll heart! What's not to love?" - Anne Feeney.
