KMUN presents

Women’s Music Pioneer -Holly Near

Coast Community Radio presents An Evening With Holly Near, Thursday October 18, 8pm at the Coaster Theatre in Cannon Beach.

Women’s Music pioneer, Holly Near, comes to the Coaster Theatre in Cannon Beach on Thursday, October 18, with a concert to benefit programming on the non-profit stations of KMUN 91.9FM Astoria and KTCB 89.5FM Tillamook.

Accompanied by her 4-piece band, the renowned singer songwriter once named Woman of the Year and nominated as one of the Women for Peace for the Nobel Peace Prize will introduce her latest CD release, Peace Becomes You.

“For the first time in the lifetime of many of our listeners,” says Tom Hartland, Development Director at Coast Community Radio, “peace and international cooperation have become mainstream political issues. As a voice of peace, Holly Near is among the great social change artists of our time.”

Holly Near’s credits include dozens of recordings and appearances with many of the world’s greatest activist artists including Pete Seeger, Joan Baez, Mercedes Sosa, Phil Ochs, Arlo Guthrie, Bonnie Raitt and many, many more.

“Peacemakers can’t force peace.” Holly told editor and author, Una Boyle, in herinterview for The Current, Coast Community Radio’s quarterly publication. “We are required to live it. When enough people live in peace, change happens.”

Another significant arena of Holly’s activism is the LGBTQ community. Her interest was both personal and political as she was one of the first celebrities to discuss her sexual orientation during a pioneering 1976 interview with People magazine.

Margaret Frimoth, one of the on-air programmers of women’s music on KMUN and KTCB, explains Ms. Near’s music this way. “Love is the foundation for understanding Holly’s songs about peace. The music exudes a kind of love that encourages listeners to join the chorus and change the world.”

An Evening With Holly Near is made possible with sponsorship from Escape Lodging’s Inn at Cannon Beach, and from Friends of Columbia Riverkeeper and the Columbia Pacific Alliance for Social Justice.

Tickets at $25 are available now from Cloud & Leaf Bookstore in Manzanita, Beach Books in Seaside, and from the Coast Community Radio station during business hours by calling 503- 325-0010. Additional information is found at CoastRadio.org.

Local and independent since 1983, Coast Community Radio has grown from more than 100,000 volunteer hours. Now rated the region’s #1 radio broadcast in total listenership, the stations of KMUN, KTCB and KCPB 90.9FM are membersupported and volunteer produced. Volunteer opportunities are available by calling Elizabeth Menetrey at the station.

Braasch’s book, Earth Under Fire: How Global Warming is Changing the World was named one of the 50 Best Environmental Books and Media by Vanity Fair.

A screening of the film POLITICS OF SAND, chronicling the efforts to keep Oregon’s ocean beaches public will be presented April 20. The Haystack Rock Awareness Program will present several beach programs over the 12 days.
