February 16, 8:30PM
DC Black Box Theater
Musical performance by the political activists and singer-songwriters, Pat Humphries and Sandy O, of the group Emma's Revolution!
"Boasting gorgeous close harmonies and unsinkable tunefulness, Emma’s Revolution (the Emma is Goldman) is a classic, globetrotting folk duo comprised of activist singer/songwriters Sandy O and Pat Humphries. Their music is progressive, socially-conscious, confrontational and shot-through with intelligence and cutting humor; [their songs have been] played for the Dalai Lama, covered by Holly Near and [they] count the great Pete Seeger among their admirers. Newest disc 'Revolutions Per Minute' is a front-to-back gem."
-- Iowa City Press
"The powers that be can control the media but it's hard to stop a good song... Pat's songs will be sung well into the 22nd century."
-- THE Pete Seeger
"Emma’s Revolution makes a tremendous impact on those who are privileged enough to hear them perform. They are lighthearted, funny, witty, approachable, intelligent women with so many interesting stories and songs. I think that their voices are so important because they do not simply expect their audience to sit back and take in their music on its merit. They are willing to hear opposition, to discuss a difference of opinions. If society is ever really going to solve anything, we need to be able to communicate as openly with one another about our concerns, our fears, our intentions, and our future."
-- Student at Buena Vista University
