From the recording Anne Feeney Sang
I was sad to hear the news that Activist, Musician, Labor Organizer and friend Anne Feeney has died of Covid-19. Anne survived 2 counts of Cancer but the virus took her on February 3, 2021. I met her around 1991 at her home in Pittsburgh while I was on tour there with fiddler Roberta Greenspan who couldn't wait to introduce me to Anne. She was bigger than life itself and an inspiration to me and so many countless others. Anne loved sing-a-longs as much as I do so I wrote this tune in this style on purpose. I hope you sing along. This song is free to share as a tribute to one of the best folksingers and songwriters I've had the privilege of sharing a stage with. Rest in Power, Anne and thank you for all your work for all of us.
I wrote the tune, played 2 acoustic guitars, bass, programmed the drums and percussion and sent it off to friends to add their parts. Vince Herman added vocals and slide guitar and his son Silas Herman played mandolin. Roberta Greenspan added fiddle and vocals. Chris Chandler added spoken word. Kris Deelane, Adam East, Hali Hammer, and Connie & Anna Cohen all added amazing vocals to remind us of what it's like to all sing together.
