George Mann

A former union organiser and activist based in Ithaca, New York, George Mann sings songs from the last century of the labour and social justice movements, and his own songs are powerful and funny takes on the state of the nation. His concerts are part sing-along, part history lesson, and he can make you shout for joy, send chills down your spine or bring tears to your eyes in the same set. He also specialises in historical and educational workshops/theme concerts and presentations on folk music, labour and social history, and some of our most beloved folksingers.  He has a keen interest in labour and social history, and, while maintaining a touring and performance schedule of more than 200 gigs each year, including dozens of nursing and veterans homes, George has recently turned his eyes toward the nation’s veterans and the effects of two long wars on soldiers and their families.  Never boring, never dull!

The Newcastle People’s Chorus

The People’s Chorus is a union choir with an emphasis on social justice, peace and workers’ rights, and is celebrating its 34th year!  Our members combine their concern regarding these and other social and global issues with a love of singing.
Our presence can be seen – and heard – at various venues, including the annual May Day march and gathering, the Illawarra Folk Festival, and anywhere we’re asked to sing to support unions and workers’ rights, the plight of refugees, the environment, and many other issues that concern our members and the wider community.
New members are always welcome. We don’t have auditions; we consider that enthusiasm is more important!
