Award-winning folk singer and activist Tom Neilson will be performing at Granite Peak Unitarian Universalist Congregation, 882 Sunset Ave, at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, March 3.
Dubbed “The Jon Stewart of folk music,” Neilson sings satirical, political songs about such topics as mines, pipelines, GMOs and the Trans-Pacific Partnership. At the forefront in helping communities organize against water privatization, mountain-top removal, nuclear energy, incinerators, fracking and toxic waste, Neilson’s travels are reflected in his songs, intertwined with farm roots and connected to social justice.
