A former union organizer, George Mann has toured for years and produced the “Hail to the Thief!” anti-Bush CD series featuring such great artists as Tom Paxton, Utah Phillips, Anne Feeney and Billy Bragg. He sings songs from the last century of labor and social activism and his own songs are powerful and funny takes on the state of the nation. He has also done much work with veterans and anti-war organizations, and his new CD is “Patience in These Times.” http://www.georgemann.org
