David Rovics grew up in a family of classical musicians in Wilton, Connecticut, and became a fan of populist regimes early on.

By the early 1990s he was a full-time busker in the Boston subways and by the mid-90s he was travelling the world as a professional flat-picking rabblerouser.

These days David lives in Portland, Oregon, and tours regularly on four continents, playing for audiences large and small at cafes, pubs, universities, churches, union halls and protest rallies. He has shared the stage with a veritable who’s who of the left in two dozen countries, and has had his music featured on Democracy Now!, BBC, Al-Jazeera and other networks.

David’s essays are published regularly on CounterPunch and elsewhere, and the 200+ songs he makes available  free on the web have been downloaded more than a million times.

Most importantly, he’s really good. He will make you laugh, he will make you cry, he will make the revolution irresistible.

Come hear David on Tuesday September 10 from 6pm,

Kulchajam, 1 Acacia St, Arts & Industry Estate, Byron Bay. 

Supports are Tim Stokes, Pico Infinity, Backdeck Rehearsal.

All profits go to Meca (Middle Eastern Children’s Alliance) aiding children deprived by war.

Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
