Performing a variety of original songs and favorites from the past 
century of folk music, George Mann and Julius Margolin combine social 
and labor history with songs and a dose of slapstick wherever they 
perform. From picket lines and union events to cafés and concert 
settings, George and Julius have been singing together since 1998. They 
have released three CDs, 1999’s “Young and Younger,” “Miles to Go Before 
We Sleep” (2000), and “Just A Few Bad Apples” (2003), and have produced 
the “Hail to the Thief!” CD compilations featuring folk artists singing 
against the Bush regime.

Sponsored by the Boston IWW (Industrial Workers of the World). Proceeds 
will benefit the defense of Alex Svoboda and Jason Friedmutter. Alex and 
Jason are IWW members who participated in a rally in Providence, RI to 
pressure restaurants to pull business from a NYC food distributor where 
IWW members are organizing to unionize across an entire industy. Alex 
was thrown to the ground by police officers, resulting in a crippling 
leg injury, and arrested and charged with several crimes. Jason was also 
arrested at the rally.
