David Rovics will be playing a fund-raiser for Palestinian Political Prisoners in Swansea this month. The US folk singer is coming to The Garage (Uplands) on Monday 24th.
David Rovics (http://davidrovics.com) lives in Portland, Oregon and tours
regularly on four continents, playing for audiences large and small at
cafes, pubs, universities, churches, union halls and protest rallies. He
has shared the stage with a veritable who's who of the left in two dozen
countries, and has had his music featured on Democracy Now!, BBC,
Al-Jazeera and other networks. He has written over 20 songs on Palesitne,
from 'Rachel Corrie' and 'Jenin' to the 'Occupation' and 'The Mavi
Marmara'. He will be supported by Andy Jones, who, as a member of Boys from
the Hill also played in the refugee camps of Palestine, a political poet,
The Granarchist and a young up and coming local singer 'Ciara'. DJs will
play World Music until late. The proceeds will be donated to Addameer
Palestinian Prisoner and Human Rights Organisation.
