It is time for a change in Western Pennsylvania.
Aaron Anthony is making a strong charge at unseating Keith Rothfus in the 12th District. Here is your chance to meet Aaron up close and personal, and to experience the amazing music of Rachel Baiman and her band.
Aaron is a father, a teacher, an expert in education policy, and a dedicated community servant. He lives with his wife, Lauren, and their two-year-old daughter in Shaler, PA. Aaron is committed to ensuring that all people have access to quality education, healthcare, childcare, and job opportunities. He’s seen the world, traveling to over 45 countries, only to realize that the best change he could make is right here at home. With steadfast support for evidence-based, compassionate policy solutions, he is running to represent Pennsylvania’s 12th Congressional District in 2018. Learn more about Aaron HERE.
In many ways, Shame, the new album from 27-year-old Nashville Americana songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Rachel Baiman, is an exploration of growing up female in America. “I wasn’t necessarily trying to write songs that would be easy to listen to,” Baiman says of the project, “I wanted to write about reality, in all of it’s terror and beauty.” From the title track about abortion politics, to love, sex, and abuse in relationships, to classism and inequality in her re-write of Andy Irvine’s working class anthem “Never Tire of the Road,” the album is ambitious in its scope, yet remains cohesive through Baiman’s personal perspective. Despite the serious subject matter, the overall feeling of the album remains light, with the tongue-in-cheek “Getting Ready to Start (Getting Ready)” and feel-good anthem “Let them Go To Heaven.” A departure from her stripped-down work with progressive folk duo 10 String Symphony, Shame is lush and varied in instrumentation and musical texture. Rachel is also a social and political activist and the founder of Folk Fights Back. Learn more about Rachel HERE.
