Join us in a celebration of Phil Ochs' life and legacy with performances by dozens of musicians and artists, interpreting the protest anthems of the '60's and '70's as well as their own original compositions across multiple languages, genres, and musical styles. Ochs (1940 – 1976) was an American protest singer and songwriter known for his wit and humor, humanism and activism, insightful lyrics and distinctive voice. He wrote hundreds of songs in the 1960s and ’70s and released eight albums. Ochs performed at many political events, including anti-Vietnam War and civil rights rallies, student and labor events, in addition to many concert appearances at such venues as New York City’s Town Hall and Carnegie Hall.
