United StatesWHO IS PMN/SFS? We're a network of:
Sound & recording engineers
Record & concert producers
using music and culture to promote progressive ideas and values. We're committed to working with and supporting grassroots and community organizations, to explore and present the diversity of people's culture. We learn from our communities and each other and we have fun doing it!
It Takes All Kinds...
We represent many social, racial, cultural, and ethnic communities as well as a great variety of musical and political interests. We are anti-racist activists, children's activists, feminists, labor organizers, lesbians and gays, and more. Our network stretches across the U. S. and Canada and includes other international members.
Music To Serve Our Needs
As PMN/SFS members we help develop, promote, and preserve people's music. We enjoy sharing our songs, stories, dances, and friendship with others who share the vision of a better world.
We Have A Lot To Offer
The People's Music Network for Songs of Freedom and Struggle provides access to the valuable resources and support of a network of musical and cultural organizers.
Open to everyone:
Two yearly gatherings where people can swap songs, share experiences, attend musical/organizing workshops and perform before a knowledgeable and sympathetic audience. The summer gathering is held in the country and the winter one in a city. We expand our ethnic and cultural base by holding the winter gathering in a different city each year.
Our next gathering will be Jan 27, 28, and 29, 2012 in Lawrence MA to help kick off the 100'th anniversary of the Bread and Roses strike. Save the date! More information will be posted here as it becomes availa
