WELCOME

THANKS FOR STOPPING BY…

 Thanks for stopping by. I’ve been making music, “seriously,” since 1998, when I teamed up with Julius Margolin and began a decade of fun and frustration, singing for the cause of unions and in eight years of protest against a stolen election and illegal president. Julius never once would concede that George Bush was president…. I accepted it and fought. We produced three CDs of our music and four CDs in the “Hail to the Thief” compilation series that ended, thankfully, with “Farewell to the Thief!” in 2008.

Along the way, we made a film about Julius (“A Union Man”), got to know some wonderful people and musicians, and played for people on both coasts and in between. When Julius faced his final illness in the summer of 2009, he did so with the love and support from literally hundreds of people all over the world who knew of his dedication, determination, and love for the struggle. Julius died on August 24, 2009, one week after his 93rd birthday, leaving me as a solo act. But he is and will always be a part of my work and he has left an impressive body of work on his own. See www.georgeandjulius.com for more info about our work together.

In 2010, I released a solo CD, “Songs for Jules and Bruce,” and the veterans CD compilation “Until You Come Home.” You can find out more about this compilation of songs that speaks of the horrors of war and the struggle of our military families at www.untilyoucomehome.com. A second volume was released in 2016… and I keep putting out CDs about every two years.

My newest CD is “The Coronavirus Sessions” and is being released in early October. More info, videos, lyrics, etc. are coming, but first we have to get the CD out.

Thanks so much to Debbie Wager and Jung le Han for the website work and design!

Please feel free to e-mail me at george@georgemann.org with any questions, comments, thoughts, etc., and especially if you or your union, organization or group are interested in booking a concert, educational/labor/folk history workshop, or a showing of the film “A Union Man.”

NO touring planned until next year at the earliest, maybe Florida in February and the west cost in the spring… but we’ll have to see.
