In May 2017 don’t miss:
Leon Rosselson and Robb Johnson’s celebration of the life and writings of Tom Paine
The Liberty Tree
Saturday May 6th 2017
Civic Hall, High Street, Totnes, TQ9 5SF
18.00 Doors open. Wonderful soup and bread from the Kitchen Table
18.15 – 19.15 Discussion of Tom Paine’s ideas about land. (All you need is an interest in land, peace and social justice).
We have just republished his Agrarian Justice (the proposal for a Universal (Basic) Income funded by Land Value Taxation) and his Proposal that Louisiana be Purchased (his proposal for avoiding war between the USA and France). Both of these ideas are highly relevant to our situation right now.
19.30 The Liberty Tree. This evening brings together two of Britain’s greatest singer-songwriters, Robb Johnson and Leon Rosselson. Their songs pull no political punches and lift the spirits of anybody with any sort of concern about contemporary life, politics and society.
They are re-united to perform The Liberty Tree, their tribute to Tom Paine so this is an opportunity not to be missed. They interweave some of their most-loved songs (including The World Turned Upside Down and Red and Green) with readings by and about Tom Paine. For a review of their performance in March see http://www.morningstaronline.co.uk/a-feb1-Inspirational-performance-of-The-Liberty-Tree#.WPNh1VBtnwd
