George Mann is a New York-based folksinger who sings songs from the last
century of labor and social activism, and his own songs are powerful and
funny takes on the state of the nation. He also writes songs of hope,
healing, struggle and triumph, and for years he recorded and performed
with Julius Margolin, who was 93 when he died in August 2009.
His latest CD is "Songs for Jules and Bruce," with songs dedicated to
and inspired by both Julius Margolin and Bruce "Utah" Phillips. He also
produced the "Until You Come Home" CD, which features such folk legends
as Tom Paxton, Utah Phillips, Holly Near, Magpie, John Gorka and more
singing about the experiences of war and of returning home. Inspired by
the book "Voices of Vets," George created this CD to help welcome home
our returning service members and recognize the sacrifices they and
their families have made for our country.
