Anne Feeney, Rest in Power (July 1, 1951 – February 3, 2021)
Join us in Celebrating the life and legacy of Anne Feeney Memorial April 3, 2021
Anne Feeney was an award winning activist folk song-writer and singer. Anne performed music designed to “comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable.” Over her 35 year performing and recording career she had spent her waking hours with people who are trying to make a difference in this world: people on strike, or in a union or community organizing drive, or defending women's rights, the environment, human rights... working to end poverty and racism and teaching peace. Anne has toured North America and Europe playing thousands of shows, released 12 recordings, and wrote the classic protest song “Have You Been to Jail For Justice” made popular by Peter, Paul, & Mary and featured in several films. She received the Joe Hill award from the Labor Heritgage Foundaton in 2005.
In late 2020 Anne was in rehabilitation for a fracture in her back when she contracted pneumonia related to COVID-19. She passed at UPMC Shadyside hospital in Pittsburgh on February 3, 2021, aged 69, with her family by her side. A virtual meorial is planned for April 3, 2021. RSVP and information here.
