18. November 2019 · Comments Off on Gary Kanter Concert · Categories: Recent Events

Gary Kanter at Tri-City Democrats

Let’s have a picnic and concert at Carl Baker’s house – 4501 W Lattin Ct, West Richland.

We’ll start the picnic at 6 and maybe do a bit of business before the music at 6:45 or 7.

Gary Kanter is a New York-born Songwriter/Humorist with a passion for topical songs in the tradition of Phil Ochs, Tom Paxton, and John Prine. His songs will make you laugh, cry, and think, though not necessarily in that order. His songs of labor and solidarity are reminiscent of labor icon, Joe Hill.

Gary has also taken on the mantle of “labor troubadour,” having organized and performed at numerous benefits for organized labor including two concerts to fundraisers for the Wisconsin recall elections. He had penned two labor songs at the behest of the Northwest labor community including “Northwest Union Call” and “Right To Work Is Wrong.” He recently performed both at the Washington State Central Labor Council held in Vancouver, WA (7/13). “Right To Work…” was requested by the president of his own union local, Musicians’ Association of Seattle (Local 76-493, AFM) and will be featured on its website for universal access. “Northwest Union Call” is currently being produced as a DVD. Both songs were featured on his third CD, “Forever Vigilant.”
