An American protest singer and songwriter, known for his "sharp wit, sardonic humor, earnest humanism, political activism, insightful lyrics and distinctive voice", Phil Ochs wrote some of the best known songs of his generation, including "I Ain't Marchin Anymore", "There But For Fortune", "Love Me, I'm a Liberal", "Draft Dodger Rag", "Power and the Glory", and "When I'm Gone". Still relevant and powerful today!
Phil Ochs was a tour-de-force, performing at political rallies, anti-war demonstrations, civil rights rallies, organized labor events, colleges, universities, New York's Town Hall and Carnegie Hall, and the 1963 and 1964 Newport Folk Festivals.
He wrote hundreds of songs, produced eight albums, and toured all over the United States, Chile, Argentina, South Africa, Australia, and New Zealand. He helped form the Yippies along with Abbie Hoffman, Paul Krasner, and Jerry Rubin.
His major influences were Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Bob Gibson, Merle Haggard and Buddy Holly.
Join us in this very special evening as we celebrate the life and creative brilliance that was Phil Ochs; a spokesperson for his generation whose relevant songs continue to be sung today.
