Love's Gonna Carry Us - Western MA

Advance tickets have closed. It is still possible to buy tickets at the door. 

We are going to have a good crowd tonight, so you may want to arrive a little early to get the best seats. 

Those who buy tickets online will be on the "will call list" as you come in. And please remember to bring your mask (preferably a KN-95 or N-95).  

You are invited to an evening of songs of joy, resilience, and justice on Friday, March 31st at 7:00 pm, at Mt Toby Friends Meetinghouse in Leverett MA.

This concert is a benefit for Trans Asylum Seekers Support Network which organizes assistance to one of the most at risk groups seeking asylum in this country.


  • Buy a ticket now (at left) at whatever price you feel you can afford—or buy a ticket at the door (space permitting).
  • Suggested donation is $20 for adults.
  • Refugees and under 18 free. No one should stay away for lack of funds. 
  • Although our website asks for a shipping address, no paper tickets are being mailed out. If you buy tickets now, you will be on a "will call" list at the door.

(Note: this page can be confusing on a phone. It may be easier to read if you hold your phone horizontally—in "landscape" rather than "portrait" view. The boldface ticket prices in left hand column—"$20.00 ea$30.00 ea$10.00 ea, etc.—refer to the ticket level above not the the ticket level below.)

COVID precautions:

  • Please plan to mask during the concert. (Annie & Peter will not be masked while performing.)
  • The room where the concert is held is well-ventilated.
  • We encourage you to self-test prior to concert. Please stay away if you have a recent exposure.
  • There is ample onsite parking at the meetinghouse.

Group singing during concert:

  • Audience will be invited to join in on most songs. We will listen to Annie's voice on some songs.
  • Annie & Peter will be leading the audience in singing out of their songbooks Rise Up Singing and Rise Again on many songs. 
  • Bring copies of these songbooks if you have them. Copies of songbooks will be available to buy or borrow at the concert. 

There is amble onsite parking available at the meetinghouse. Watch for white sign with rainbow flag on the left before crossing bridge.

We hope you can join us for this great evening of singing!

(The name of this concert is inspired by the title track of Fred Small's 1989 debut album.)
