The committed musicians of STEEL STRINGS & BREAK BEATS resist genre and fight for inspiring music by fusing the social justice roots of Hip Hop, the DIY ethics of punk rock, and the soapbox troubadour tradition of folk music. The tour's four diverse members are activists and organizers who use their music and poetry as powerful tools that support grassroots struggles for liberation. In addition to the bands' topical, uplifting, and crowd-rocking performances, the tour offers interactive workshops for students and community members who want to get involved with movements for revolutionary change.

WORKSHOPS INCLUDE: History of Hip Hop and Social Justice, Connecting the Dots of Climate Justice, Community Organizing 101, and more! Workshop descriptions are available in our online presskit.

Check out our music:

VeroniqueC's Eclectic Collab Project- Polka Haunt Us
Polka Haunt Us Progress Report No. 1, March 2008

Greetings Dear Fiends and Fans!

Well, we are happy to report to you that we are now in full-on production mode. We will be laying down our inaugural track, "The White Witch Of Jamaica" on Tuesday, March 11th, at Addison Sound (The Official Recording Studio of  Polka Haunt Us), with owner/engineer Robert Tepper.

It is an original ditty, lyrics by Veronique Chevalier & music by "Gee" Rabe, based on a legend about the infamous 18th Century serial murderess Annie Palmer, and is one of the most well-known horror tales from that fair Caribbean nation.

Our rendition marries Polka with Reggae, and showcases Gee's unparalleled accordion playing, as well as her kickass steel pan prowess. Rounding out this particular session will be Kirk Brundage- drums & percussion, Brian Netzley- bass, and Mateo Denali, doing a turn as  the voice of  the Devil himself..

Noted engineer Joe Chiccarelli (AKA THE "Joe" of Frank Zappa's "Joe's Garage"), has agreed to do our mixing, and Jann Castor will be our mastering engineer.

We will post the finished sound file of "White Witch" as soon as possible for your listening pleasure! Currently in various stages of completion, are compositions based on Japanese, Norwegian, Gypsy, Mexican, Brazilian, Argentinian, familiar Urban Legends, and All American Trailer Trash ghost stories, so that gives us nine of the lucky 13 songs that will be included on this compilation, to be released in plenty of time for Halloween this year.

If you have any favorite ghost or spooky stories from a region not listed above, that you'd like to see included, feel free to let us know. If we like it, we'll do it!

Stay tuned for updates...

Shannon Murray & Evan Greer East Coast Tour Booking!
Hi Everyone!
  Please get in touch if you are interested in bringing Shannon and I to play or offer a workshop in you're town. We'll be traveling down the East Coast, leaving Boston at the end of January and ending up in Florida in late February. Contact me: evan@riotfolk.org if you'd like to book something. Please don't leave comments here, I probably won't get them!

Also: anyone who goes to high school or college, please get in touch if you're interested in having us do a workshop in your school!

-Evan G

Shannon Murray and Evan Greer are activists, songwriters, and educators who use their music as a powerful tool for radical social change. They are members of the Riot-Folk! Collective, a group of 9 young musicians who support each other financially and work together to create and distribute music that teaches, provokes, heals, and inspires.

From singalongs to storytelling, tackling issues from climate change to feminism, Shannon and Evan's interactive performances and workshops are designed to directly support grassroots movements working for social and environmental justice.

This February, they will be leaving the car at home and heading down the east-coast via Greyhound bus to offer up some musical inspiration to people from all generations who wish to see a more just and sustainable world. They will bring with them stories and information about struggles for liberation happening in their hometowns and around the globe. On this tour, in addition to their anything-but-traditional performances, Shannon and Evan will be offering Connecting the Dots Workshops that weave together music, discussion, games, stories and images that illuminate the connections between different forms of oppression and avenues towards change.

Shannon and Evan's music is available for free download at www.riotfolk.org

“Music that the kids can relate to, a message that can't be ignored and a passionate delivery that really challenges!”

How many ready for revolution?

If someone presented you with a clear cause for government change, and you knew the system of government we have wouldn't allow it, would you be ready for revolution? With twenty people I could deliver the Houston area. It's not hard. And rifles are easy enough to find.
