On Wednesday, November 28th, at 7:30 pm, Antioch University Santa Barbara will host a concert to raise funds for student scholarships. The event will feature inspiring songs and words with singer-songwriter Holly Near and actor Mike Farrell, capturing the history of social change in America.

This powerful evening is a tribute to the courageous men and women who have embodied Antioch’s mission of civic engagement in social, economic, and environmental justice throughout our nation’s history.

Holly Near has been an artist/activist since the late 1960’s. With 29 albums to her credit, she has performed folk and protest music with such iconic figures as Pete Seeger, Arlo Guthrie and Joan Baez. Her work for social change has won her awards from many organizations, including the ACLU and NOW. Holly Near was named Woman of the Year by Ms. Magazine and in 2005 was included in the list of “1000 Women for the Nobel Peace Prize.”

Mike Farrell played Captain B.J. Hunnicutt on the long-running TV hit M*A*S*H. He also starred on the TV series Providence and made numerous appearances on such shows as Desperate Housewives, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. An activist for many social and political causes, he has long been involved in Human Rights Watch, Death Penalty Focus and PETA, which named its humanitarian award after him. Traveling to Central America, he helped refugees from the civil war in El Salvador.
