The music of the late Phil Ochs shaped an entire generation. When he tragically took his own life in 1976, he left behind over 100 songs which continue to be performed by musicians of conscience around the world. His classics like "Changes," "There But For Fortune," and "I Ain't Marching Anymore" remain as relevant and inspiring today as they were back in the '60s. Tonight, a lineup of fabulous artists carries on the tradition by bringing Phil's music to our stage in an evening celebrating this great artist and activist.
Greg Greenway's music blends the passion of
Richie Havens, the lyrical guitar of James Taylor, and
the rhythmic and political influences of Peter
Gabriel, the Police and a wealth of Third World
Artists. His debut recording, A Road Worth Walking
Down, was nominated for two Boston Music Awards and is
still receiving national air play. His third cd,
Mussolini's Head, was released this year to very
favorable reviews. He performed at Carnegie Hall in
the New York Singer/Songwriter Festival which was
broadcast on NPR's World Caf in 1994. Greg was born
in Virginia and now makes his home on Cape Cod in
It's sure to be an inspirational night, with each performer singing one of Phil's songs and one original, interspersed with plenty of anecdotes and reflections on Phil's life and legacy.
