Exactly one hundred and one years after the October Revolution, Subversive Theatre is proud to host this heartfelt folk music tribute to the revolutionary spirit that makes the world go round featuring internationally renowned folk musician/activist Si Kahn and special guest Mary Ramsey
Proclaimed the “Poet Laureate of the North Carolina AFL-CIO”, Si Kahn and his breath-takingly understated blue collar bluegrass ballads have been moving audiences for over 50 years. An inductee of the Blue Ridge Music Hall of Fame, Si Kahn has toured with Pete Seeger, Andy Irvine (Ireland), Cathy Fink & Marcy Marxer, John McCutcheon, Joe Jencks, Maria Dunn (Canada) and The Looping Brothers (Germany). His many songs — such as Aragon Mill, Gone Gonna Rise Again, Go To Work On Monday, Wild Rose of the Mountain and Rubber Blubber Whale — have become part of the oral folk tradition, and are sung in folk clubs and living rooms, at demonstrations, and on picket lines around the world.
Rolling Stone’s Geoffrey Himes describes Si’s unique musical style as “A poetic detail and an ironic understatement unknown in political folk music since Dylan’s early folkie days.”
Johnny Cash’s daughter Rosanne put it this way: “I put Si in the same category as Woody Guthrie, as Pete Seeger, and in a strange way, with my Dad, who shared his righteous sense of humanity, and his love of the ‘meek’, who he truly believed would ‘inherit the earth.’” — Rosanne Cash
Mary Ramsey is half of Buffalo’s critically-acclaimed folk duo JOHN AND MARY. In 1995 she stepped up to the plate replacing Natalie Merchant as the lead singer & songwriter of 10,000 MANIACS enjoying great success with her top 40 hit “More Than This.” Sporting violin and viola, Mary has toured the world even playing for troops in Kuwait and Bahrain. Mary has performed with various orchestras across the country along with her work as a performer and music director at Buffalo’s Irish Classical Theatre.
