Schedule Change: Popular Folksinger Ross Altman Steps in for Fred Blanco at The Found Theatre This Sunday!
2010-10-08 · By Editor
Due to unforeseen circumstances, Fred Blanco will not be able to perform his one-man show, “The Stories of Cesar Chavez,” on Sunday, October 10, 2010 at 2 p.m. at The Found Theatre.
The good news is that a worthy replacement has agreed to step up: “A Mighty Hard Road: From Woody Guthrie to Cesar Chavez,” a concert by popular folksinger Ross Altman. Ross played to a packed house at The Found last year, and has also generously participated in our fundraisers for Doctors Without Borders. The Found thanks him for graciously stepping in to allow the show to go on! Because it is part of their Family Friendly Sunday program, tickets for this performance are a ridiculously low $5 for all ages. A perfect opportunity to enjoy an afternoon of rousing labor tunes!
Mr. Altman has asked that it be announced, this event will be presented as part of Daniel Pearl World Music Days, which takes place in the month of October to commemorate the murder of the Wall Street Journal reporter in Pakistan four months after 9/11. October 10 is Daniel Pearl’s birthday. Starting in October 2002, an annual commemoration of music in the spirit of “Harmony for Humanity” has been celebrated worldwide, with literally thousands of musicians from all countries and genres presenting their work in the context of this broadly ecumenical effort to bridge cultural and religious differences at home and abroad. The Found Theatre is extremely proud to be represented by Ross Altman as part of this program.
The Ross Altman’s “A Mighty Hard Road: From Woody Guthrie to Cesar Chavez” performance is Sunday, October 10, 2010 at 2 p.m. at The Found Theatre, 599 Long Beach Blvd., Long Beach, 90802.
Tickets for the event are $5 for all ages. For reservations call 562/433-3363.
Note: All other performances of “The Stories of Cesar Chavez” will occur as planned. Visit the Found Theatre website for details.
