WEAVERS founding member Fred Hellerman praised Work o’ the Weavers in a recent newspaper interview with Elliot Cohen. It’s short and very sweet and you can read it at the source. Thanks, Fred and thank you, Elliot:

Delighted to report that Work o’ the Weavers played to a sold-out, SRO, singalong, standing-ovation audience of 600+ March 3rd evening in Bethesda MD that raised over $20,000 for the local Habitat Interfaith Build project. Many, many thanks to Dee Aronson and her team of extraordinary volunteers who worked their tails off to bring it all together. Speaking for the quartet, we had a truly wonderful time sharing the timeless Weavers songs and timely story.
It was a very gratifying experience on all fronts.
“Talk about having a great time! I have had many shows here at my home and I can’t remember when I had this much fun at one. The voices of the audience filled my home with song. The (Work o’ the) Weavers show was well organized. It was narrated by each group member and then punctuated with song, great song. I sang along all nite.” –Lee Shapiro, Sharon House Concerts (June 2013)
Since its 2003 inception Work o’ the Weavers has played to enthusiastically participatory audiences in 28 states, Canada and Israel. Here are some highlights!
