The Songbook of James Connolly, Irish Revolutionary
Songs of Freedom is the name of the songbook edited by James Connolly and published in 1907. Connolly's introduction is better known than the collection for which it was written, containing his oft-quoted maxim:
"Until the movement is marked by the joyous, defiant singing of revolutionary songs, it lacks one of the most distinctive marks of a popular revolutionary movement, it is the dogma of a few and not the faith of the multitude."
Please join us to talk about, sing and celebrate both the new release of the 1907 James Connolly Songbook, and the Songs Of Freedom CD, bringing the rollicking revolutionary anthems to a new generation of rebels in the 21st Century.
Suggested donation of $10 per person is requested but not required. Wheelchair accessible.
The event is co-sponsored by The event is co-sponsored by: Peninsula Peace and Justice Center, Peace Action of San Mateo County. San Mateo Green Business Alliance, Whole Building Supply, PM Press, and Reach And Teach.
