Judy Fjell and Nancy Schimmel
Judy Fjell grew up in Montana listening to folk-protest music on the radio and was so inspired to sing the repertoire that she bought a garage sale
guitar and taught herself to play. Nancy Schimmel, the daughter of Malvina Reynolds, experienced firsthand her mothers protest stories and songs in
Berkeley, California. Nancy Schimmel truly knows the life of Malvina Reynolds better than anyone else alive today.
When Judy and Nancy met at a Fjell concert in Oakland, California, in the mid-eighties, they began a conversation and collaboration which
continues to the present. Each Malvina Reynolds concert is a one-time-only celebration of the life of this American songwriter, who collaborated
regularly with Pete Seeger and whose songs are still performed forty years after her death. Malvinas song Little Boxes is currently known from the
Weeds television series. It has also been seen on YouTube by 13 million viewers in Walk Off the Earths brilliant cardboard box set video. Kodak
adapted Turn Around, Malvinas song about her daughter Nancy for its television ads in the sixties. A civil rights sit-in at San Francisco's Palace
Hotel inspired Malvina to write It Isnt Nice, still a favorite at protest gatherings. Other well-known Malvina songs are What Have They Done to
the Rain, Magic Penny, God Bless the Grass, and Morningtown Ride, which was a top hit in England for several weeks. Judy and Nancy will
also perform several of the songs they have co-written in the spirit of Malvina.
