$12 advance/$15 door


Folksinger and social historian Joe Glazer has been collecting, composing, recording and singing songs of workers, protest, politics and social commentary for more than 50 years. His voice and guitar have been heard in almost every state and in 60 foreign countries where he interpreted American life in song and story for the United States Information Agency. With more than 30 albums, CDs and cassettes to his credit, Joe's latest recording, "The Music of American Politics", highlights American political history as told through its campaign songs.

Join us as Mary Cliff, host of the WETA radio show, "Traditions", guides us through a retrospective of his music, while coaxing Joe to tell us the stories behind his fascinating life. Mary Cliff grew up in Arlington, and has been active in the Washington-area music community since high school and college in DC. In 1972 she was hired to host Classical Weekend at WETA, where she's been ever since. Traditions, her four hour Saturday night folk music program, is known for its breadth: a mix of traditional, revival, singer-songwriter, ethnic, world and kitchen music, with a strong emphasis on artists and performances in the greater Washington area. Outside her work at WETA, Mary Cliff is seen as festival MC, chamber music recording engineer, long-time volunteer and cheerleader for this area's music scene and its artists, especially those of the folk community.
