Singer Anne Feeney Performs at UNF in World Peace Concert
Contact: Joanna Norris, Assistant Director
Department of Media Relations and Events
Nationally known singer, songwriter and activist Anne Feeney will perform on Friday, Nov. 11, in a world peace concert at the University of North Florida’s Student Services Auditorium (building 14, room 1700), beginning at 8:00 p.m. The concert is free and open to the public. A $10 donation is suggested.
The Pittsburg-based performer says her music is designed to “comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable.” Better known as “the union maid,” Feeney’s bottomless song bag draws on Irish, bluegrass, traditional, labor, pop, folk and contemporary material.
She’s as likely to sing a traditional song or an obscure gem by one of her many friends in the singer-songwriter circuit as she is one of her own award-winning songs. Feeney’s anthem “Have You Been to Jail for Justice?” is featured on Peter, Paul and Mary’s “In These Times” CD and also on “Carry It On.”
This concert for world peace is sponsored by the UNF Chapter of Amnesty International and the UNF Chapter of the United Faculty of Florida. For more information, contact Stan Swart at (904) 620-1654.
