STEEL STRINGS & BREAK BEATS TOUR 2009
BROADCAST LIVE - EVAN GREER & FRIENDS


The committed musicians of STEEL STRINGS & BREAK BEATS resist genre and fight for inspiring music by fusing the social justice roots of Hip Hop, the DIY ethics of punk rock, and the soapbox troubadour tradition of folk music. The tour's four diverse members are activists and organizers who use their music and poetry as powerful tools that support grassroots struggles for liberation. In addition to the bands' topical, uplifting, and crowd-rocking performances, the tour offers interactive workshops for students and community members who want to get involved with movements for revolutionary change.

WORKSHOPS INCLUDE: History of Hip Hop and Social Justice, Connecting the Dots of Climate Justice, Community Organizing 101, and more! Workshop descriptions are available in our online presskit.
