Meeting House Presents Jill Friedman, Tang, Self-Suffice, David Giardina, and friends
Building on a Pete Seeger style sing-along the show will segue to rap and hip hop from Tang and Self-suffice, to Jill's jazz, blues and soul, to inspirational flute and sax from Mixashawn and Spanish guitar from David Giardina.

 Jill Free (aka Jill Friedman) began her singing career after learning of the injustices of our society during the early 70s and saw the power of using music as a form of protest. Jill has dedicated her life to community activism and singing music for social change. As a member of the Peoples Music Network, Jill has performed with the likes of Pete Seeger, Alvin Carter, Sr., Mixashawn Rozie and Bread and Roses, and has traveled from Ashville, N.C. to Chicago, IL, Jamaica, West Africa and beyond, bringing songs of freedom and struggle, love and life. Jill can be seen singing with children from the Hartford community or sitting in with local jazz and blues bands around town, and is one of Hartfords biggest believers that music transcends our differences and has the power and energy to bring people together in peace and community!

Tang was born and raised in Hartford, CT and the Greater Hartford area. He has been involved in the Tri- State arts scene for years involved in productions like Afropunk Battle of the Bands, Under the curtain (A Hip- Hop cultural exchange between Russia and USA), and WNPRs Where we live show. He has hosted the Trinity International Hip Hop Festival, has his own station, and has been featured on the cover of Connecticut newspapers Hartford Courant & CTNOW. Tang brings various Hip-Hop flows with a cultured perspective, with which he spreads peace, love, and positivity.

With roots in the sixties folk- rock culture, Dave studied classical guitar with Sharon Isbin and Philip Defremery, Jazz with Sal Salvador and Bob Kobus and Flamenco with Mario Escudero and Paco Pena (Spain). He also played in master classes for John Williams, Manuel Barrueco, Ben Verdery, Abel Carlevaro, and Oscar Ghiglia.Considered a versatile, superb performer by other musicians. Dave expresses an irresistible toe-tapping energy as effortlessly as he traces a delicate melodic line.  He brings to each performance an extensive repertoire and years of training in different traditionsthe clarity and precision of classical technique, the explosive and exotic sound of flamenco, the smoothly shifting harmonies of jazz, the exuberant energy of traditional Latin music and the classic power chords  and riffs of rock n roll.

Lee Mixashawn Rozie was called away for a family emergency and won't be with us, but sends his love and best wishes.
