Peter Mayer & Emma’s Revolution
Saturday, November 16, 2019
First Unitarian Universalist Church of San Diego
6:00pm VIP Reception
UURISE is proud to present Peter Mayer and Emma’s Revolution together in concert. This is the first time the two acts will perform on the same stage.
ABOUT UURISE and THIS EVENT
The mission of Unitarian Universalist Refugee and Immigrant Services and Education (UURISE) is advancing justice and human rights for immigrants and refugees. The goal of this fundraising event is to seed a new program which will allow UURISE to offer clients micro-loans for the required government fees. This program will remove a financial barrier that prevents so many from applying for immigration benefits (e.g. citizenship, DACA renewal, sponsoring a family member, etc.)
ABOUT THE ARTISTS
In the spirit of Emma Goldman’s famous attribution, “If I can’t dance, I don’t want to be part of your revolution,” Emma’s Revolution brings their uprising of truth and hope to concerts, festivals, conferences and justice events. The duo has given thousands of performances throughout the US and around the world in Canada, Chile, Korea, Scotland, England, Israel, Palestine, Nicaragua and Cuba. Emma’s Revolution consistently delivers performances so powerful, audiences leap to their feet to demand more.
Minnesota’s Peter Mayer has been singing and songwriting full-time for over 20 years, performing in venues across the United States and beyond. He writes songs for a small planet–songs about interconnectedness and the human journey–songs about life on earth and the mysterious and wondrous fact of our existence. He also writes songs about dress hats, pumpkins and pajamas, and even love and freight trains just like a good folk musician should. His music has been performed by artists like Kathy Mattea, David Wilcox, Claudia Schmidt, Anne Hills, Priscilla Herdman, Darryl Purpose, Billy Jonas, and Ronny Cox, to name a few. His work has been included in song books, church hymnals, and folk radio playlists across the country.
