Holly Near brings to the stage a unique combination of highly trained vocal power, delightful humor and poetic reflection. For over 40 years, Holly has fused cabaret, folk and spoken word in to a sound track for progressive thinking. The repertoire weaves through Holly’s own deeply moving compositions to songs by such luminaries as Dr. Bernice Reagon and Ferron to great classics like Rogers and Hart’s “Where or When”. Her powerful voice has creatively articulated the complexities of social change activism since the early seventies. With critical thinking as a major element in her songwriting, she has been a unifying force connecting the issues that so challenge the lives of activists, educators and community. Holly says, “Now that Pete Seeger, Odetta, Mary Travers, Maya Angelou, Ruby Dee and so many other elders have left us, artists of my generation are no longer elders in training. We are the elders.” Joining her tonight are Bay Area favorites Tammy Hall and Jan Martinelli.
