About the performers:
Charlie King is a musical storyteller and political satirist. Pete Seeger hailed him as "one of the fine singers and songwriters of our time." Charlie has been at the heart of American folk music since the early 60s. His songs have been recorded and sung by Pete Seeger, Holly Near, Ronnie Gilbert, John McCutcheon, and Arlo Guthrie. He and Tret have been performing online lately, and this is their first in-person appearance since the pandemic.
"If we had more Charlie Kings in the world, I'd be less worried." -Peggy Seeger
Tret Fure began her career at the age of 16, singing in coffeehouses and campuses in the Midwest. At 20, she was performing as guitarist and vocalist for Spencer Davis, touring with him and penning the single for his album Mousetrap. She recorded her first album in 1972. Some career highlights include winning the South Florida Folk Festival Singer/Songwriter Competition in 2 out of 3 categories (Best Overall and Best Up-Tempo Song), winning the Women in the Arts Jane Schliessman Award for Outstanding Contributions to Women's Music, and winning the A Still Small Voice 4U songwriting competition with her song "Monuments." 2023 brings Tret's 18th album, Lavender Moonshine, a CD addressing the times in which we live. Besides touring and recording, Tret teaches guitar and songwriting, paints pet portraits on commission, and has even published a cookbook, Tret's Kitchen.
