In the Blue Mountains for one night only, George Mann (US) is a songwriter's singer who would just as soon share stories and songs from the long history of folk music as sing his own songs.His concerts are singalong sessions as well as history lessons.

George brings his experience as a union organiser and educator to his concerts - stories and songs about real events and the struggle for a better life.
He has played the Illawarra Folk Festival several times and performed for most of the folk clubs in Australia, and will be at the Kangaroo Valley Folk Festival and touring Australia in October 2022.
