“Folksinger, songwriter, activist, historian, and educator, Tom Neilson provides a voice for all who believe in the power of music to effect change. His award-winning songs of humor, compassion and political  affairs have been performed in 16 countries on 5 continents. His lyrics are celebrated for their sophistication, political astuteness, and wit.

“Recently selected as a Finalist in the Kerrville Folk Festival, he was referred to as the “Jon Stewart of folk music.” With long standing involvements with groups working for peace and justice, you will hear his music at the gates of military bases, nuclear plants, on union lines, and to free political prisoners such as Leonard Peltier and Mumia Abu-Jamal.”
