Featured performers:

Sweet Honey In the Rock

Sweet Honey In The Rock is an internationally renowned Grammy Award® nominated female a cappella vocal quartet and one of most relevant musical collectives in music today; both as a performance ensemble and as an ambassadorial African American organization founded on the triumvirate missions of empowerment, education and entertainment. Over the past four decades they have created positive, loving and socially conscious message music and taken an activist stance toward making this planet a better place for all in which to live.

Emma’s Revolution

Emma’s Revolution has been described as smart, funny, and informative– like Rachel Maddow and Jon Stewart with guitars. Emma’s Revolution is the duo of award-winning activist musicians, Pat Humphries & Sandy O. Called “inspiring, gutsy and rockin’,” Emma’s Revolution’s songs have been sung for the Dalai Lama, praised by Pete Seeger, and covered by Holly Near.

Brother Sun

National Touring Artists Greg Greenway, Joe Jencks, and Pat Wictor have made their mark as veteran touring singer-songwriters, but Brother Sun is no songwriter’s round. The trio’s harmonies, as much as their lyrics, tell what they are about: warm as a campfire, stirring as a gospel church, rousing as a call to arms.

Josh White Jr.

Josh White Jr. was born with both music and activism in his blood. His music crosses genres, and his words and experiences bring people together. Whether telling a story or singing a song, Josh will provide the comfort and inspiration we will need on Inaugural night.

Tret Fure

One of the most prolific artists in the contemporary singer-songwriter arena, Tret Fure has released 15 albums and CDs over the course of her 46-year career. In addition to being a gifted songwriter, Fure has engineered and produced countless recordings by a variety of artists, including her own work.
