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 proposal to share the rent of land for the benefit of all, and to resolve territorial disputes by financial not military means. (All you need is an interest in land, peace and social justice).
19.30 The Liberty Tree. This evening brings together two of Britain’s greatest singer-songwriters, Robb Johnson and Leon Rosselson, whose songs pull no political punches and have tracked our society over the last 50 years. They are re-united to perform The Liberty Tree, their tribute to Tom Paine, for the first time since 2011 – 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.
Please reserve a place in advance to be sure of a place (and soup). There is no fixed charge but donations on the night. Book now
A double CD is available.
