They are delighted to bring David Rovics back to the Kitchen Garden Cafe as part of his Meanwhile in Afghanistan World Tour. This event is being run jointly with Red Bird Sky, Sky, who will be providing the support act on 10 June.
In the mid 90’s David was a full-time busker in the Boston subways and by the mid-90′s he was travelling the world as a professional flat-picking rabble-rouser. He now tours regularly on four continents, playing for audiences large and small at cafés, pubs, universities, churches, union halls and protest rallies. The 200+ songs he makes available for free on his website, Songs of Social Significance, have been downloaded more than a million times. Most importantly, he’s really good. He will make you laugh, he will make you cry and he will make the revolution irresistible.
