Songs of Protest Saturday Night with BAPsters!

This Saturday night at the Coffee at Chestnut & Pine, 492 N. Pine Street in Burlington there will a themed open mic night hosted by Jeff Peterson. The night will feature original compositions and standard songs of protest and social significance performed by local folks. The night will include performances by BAPsters Stephen Sullivan, Jacob Merseberger and your's truly, Sean Cranley.

The set list is below and includes a couple links where you can watch and/or listen to some of the selections. It's supposed to be warm Saturday, so come on out and join your neighbors in raising your voice and perhaps a glass and proclaim in the spirit of the great Dr. Tom Lehrer:

"Oh we are the folks song army
Every one of us cares
We all hate poverty, war and injustice
Unlike the rest of you squares" ;>
