Barbara Dane
Celebrating a Lifetime of Jazz, Blues, and Songs for Peace and Justice
Sat, Oct 21, 2017 at 7PM
Royce Hall

Outspoken and indomitable, Barbara Dane continues to sing out with wit, wisdom and swing. Cited as an inspiration by artists such as Bob Dylan and Bonnie Raitt, her rich history includes collaborations with greats like Louis Armstrong, Earl “Fatha” Hines, Lightnin’ Hopkins, The Chambers Brothers, Brownie McGhee and Sonny Terry. Taking a cue from early mentor Pete Seeger, Dane has never confined herself to one genre, singing at D.C. rallies, Mississippi Freedom Schools, the gates of military bases around the world and post-revolutionary Cuba. CAP UCLA hosts an evening of music, poetry and recollections with her friends, family and special guest artists including Tammy Hall Trio, Pablo Menendez and The Chambers Brothers, in celebration of her 90th birthday and honoring her artistry, activism and amazing life.
