Annie Patterson & Peter Blood Rise Again

Annie Patterson & Peter Blood

Rise Again: The Tour is underway as Annie Patterson and Peter Blood celebrate the release of their new songbook.   Rise Again, their new songbook, includes 1200 songs in 300 pages with graphics that give it “a home-grown, real  feel.” Creating this new songbook was their full-time project for three years. Now you can join in on the tour!

Annie and Peter are joined by an assortment of performing friends in California through Sept, the northeast US Oct-Nov, southeast US Feb-Mar 2016, and Ontario and mid-west US in Apr-May 2016.

Annie and Peter describe their ministry as one “to encourage group singing in a wide variety of settings - as a way to empower people's lives, build community, strengthen people's hope & resilience, and help create a just and peaceful world.” Their ministry, documented by a QuakerSpeak video, is minuted by Mt Toby Meeting (NEYM).

So beloved is their work, including Rise Up Singing which sold around 1 million copies, that they raised $33,983 from 481 people in less than 7 weeks. That 2014 Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign funded completion of their new songbook, publicity for Rise Again, building their new website to help people connect & sing, and taking the book on the road in 2015-2016!

You can continue to support their ministry in many ways:

Except where noted otherwise, all concerts are benefits for the new Carry It On Fund supporting organizations carrying on the work of Pete & Toshi Seeger.
