After 50 years of performing and 40 years of songwriting, the quite well known and extremely well traveled, Charlie King celebrates by releasing another record and making a Midwest March tour. The retrospective album So Far, So Good contains 40 songs to mark the 40 years of musical storytelling and political satirizing that is King’s trademark. Charlie’s had original songs recorded by folk luminaries such as Pete Seeger, Holly Near, Ronnie Gilbert, John McCutcheon, Arlo Guthrie, Peggy Seeger, Chad Mitchell and Judy Small. He’s also garnered several national and international song awards in the justice, peacemaking and labor camps, proving that writing important songs about social events can and does make a difference in bettering our world. Or in Charlie’s words, “What I most value in a song is the way it helps us see an old reality in a totally new light.” On Sunday morning he presents a sincere, heartfelt and first person tribute to the late, great Pete Seeger during the ALUUC morning service at 10:30.
