Feeney to Bring ‘Folksongs for Troublemakers’ to UNF


JACKSONVILLE -- Folk singer and activist Anne Feeney will perform Saturday, Jan. 22, at 8 p.m. in the Robinson Theatre on the University of North Florida campus.

Feeney, who once practiced law, will present an evening of “Folksongs for Troublemakers.” Her songs speak for the working class and social change, with ideas firmly rooted in the labor movement. Feeney’s grandfather was a mineworkers’ organizer. Since 1991, Feeney has traveled across the United States and to Canada, Mexico, Ireland and Sweden.

The concert is free and open to the public, but a donation of $10 is suggested. The Robinson Theatre is in Building 14, Room 1700. The event is sponsored by the UNF chapter of United Faculty of Florida. For information, contact Stan Swart at sswart@unf.edu or 620-1654.
