Carol DenneyCarol is a Berkeley institution. The city's Commission on the Status of Women honored her for civil liberties activism in 2003, and the city honored her again in 2004 for homeless advocacy. She founded “Fiddlers for Peace” and serves as curator of the "Deep Poetry Project" and editor of the Pepper Spray Times. Jack Hirschman, former poet laureate of San Francisco, nominated her to the Revolutionary Poets' Brigade in 2010. Her songwriting is stellar. Her singing is strong. She'll be joined on stage by Steven Strauss on stand-up bass, as well as special guests, and the show will celebrate the release of her new album, Unless Of Course You Die. Don’t miss Carol Denney playing songs of joy, love, and political struggle.

 

Jim BrunoJim Bruno is a singer and songwriter from Chicago, now based in the Bay Area, who teaches songwriting at Foothill College as well as at the Freight. Shawn Colvin, Chuck Prophet, Mary Lou Lord, Thad Cockrell, and Laurie MacAllister have recorded songs that Jim has written or co-written. His recent album Alright Alright features clever lyrics and catchy tunes that often have a bittersweet, nostalgic feel – “We’d sing melodies made out of moonlight to the sound of old guitars.” The website acousticmusic.com says, “May he continue to write songs long into a brilliant future.”
