Music of peace and justice with Harmonic Insurgence

Poetry with Amityville local, Lois Walker

Open Mic: Maybe You?

What a great line-up! And, while Harmonic Insurgence, Lois, and Brian are the only scheduled performers, old PeaceSmithies know there are lots of surprises in store at the Open Mic after the show. We have had modern dance, satirical trios, and the recitation of eloquent manifestos. What can you share?
