Benefit Concert for Mass Peace Action with Tom Neilson and Lynn Waldron.
Tom Neilson, Ed.D. combines art with activism. He has received over two dozen awards, to include two song of the year awards from Independent Musicians. In 2017, he received the Arab American Women Association Award for Education About Palestine Through Performance Art. In 2015 he was nominated for the United Nations Nelson Mandela Award for Lifetime Achievement in Peace and Justice. Says Michael Stock of WLRN, Miami, FL, “Tom does a great job of reminding people of what is really important, and the power of folk music to say it.” Tom’s wife, Lynn Waldron, will join him in performance. Her activist work includes working with the Sugar Shack Alliance to prevent new fossil fuel infrastructure in New England. She joins Tom as actress and singer in the Jobs With Justice annual “Voices of Labor History” production to celebrate and honor May Day. She also sings in a hospice choir where small groups sing at bedside for the critically ill and dying. They live in Greenfield, MA. Learn more about Tom and hear some of his music on his website
