The truth is not the facts, the world is not the maps, everyday the concrete cracks and the new grass unfurls like an analog girl in a digital world. -- Judy Gorman
Judy Gorman toured for many years as a full-time musician, performing in clubs, festivals, universities, and peace and social justice events in over 10 countries and 49 states. Her passionate, bluesy vocals and energizing songs are infused with the vision that another world is possible.

Pete Seeger says Gorman "shoots the arrow straight to the heart...[and is] a wonderful singer and musician." German Public Radio calls Gorman's songs "real music in a sea of mediocrity." and the Boston Globe describes Gorman's voice as " dark, rich" and says she "brought the idea of international solidarity within reach. No small feat."

As a long-time progressive musician, and member of the War Resisters League, she will sing about issues of peace and justice with what many have found to be a soulful and sensitive touch.

The event is a benefit for The War Resisters League, the 84 year-old nonviolence organization

There will be a sliding scale donation starting at $10 (More if you choose, less if you can't: no one turned away.)
