This is not your father's folk music... insightful... humorous... you just have to hear it."
-- Neil Fagen Performing SongwriterIn January 2001, Chandler teamed up with longtime friend and personal hero Anne Feeney. Based in Pittsburgh, PA, Feeney is the granddaughter of an intrepid mineworkers' organizer, who also used music to carry the message of solidarity to working people. After two decades of community activism and regional performances at rallies, Anne took her message on the road. Since 1991 Anne has traveled to the frontlines in 40 states, Canada, Mexico, Ireland and Sweden.Her anthem "Have You Been to Jail for Justice?" is being performed by Peter, Paul and Mary. Dubbed the "minister of culture" to the movements for economic and social justice and human rights, Anne is "the best labor singer in North America" according to Utah Phillips. Their acclaimed 2002 release "Flying Poetry Circus" includes seven folken word selections totalling 40  minutes.
