30 March 2017 (18:00),
Chancellor’s Hall, 1st Floor, Senate House
Join us for an explosion of radical sound and voice as we host a performance bringing together musicians with traditions of performing socialist and radical music. Featured performers will include Grace Petrie and the Raised Voices Choir.
The evening will be opened by the north London-based Raised Voices Choir, who sing for peace, justice and the environment against militarism, capitalism, racism and sexism.
Our headline act will be Grace Petrie, a folk singer songwriter and activist from Leicester.
She first exploded on to the national protest scene in 2010 with the emotive anthem Farewell to Welfare, which captured perfectly the spirit of the new wave of dissent in austerity Britain. Since then, she has written, recorded and toured relentlessly. Her unique takes on life, love and politics, and the warmth and wit with which they are delivered have won over audiences everywhere, and she has quietly become one of the most respected and prolific songwriters working in the UK today’.
Tickets are free and include a glass of wine or soft drink on arrival. The show will last for approximately 2 hours.
This event is part of the Radical Voices exhibition season which runs from 16 January - 31 March 2017. For more information or any problems and queries about booking please contact Senate House Library Events & Engagement by telephone on 020 7862 8417 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
