Southern Oregon's Pete Herzog opens for Mann

Southern Oregonians were joined by State Representative Peter Buckley at the Grass Shack in Phoenix Monday evening for some great food, music and a vision for our evolving health care system that will include everyone. No one will be excluded when Oregon moves to a single payer health care system that will focus directing money to health care instead corporate profit. The current fragmented non-system driven by the bottom-line has turned into a national disgrace.

The concert was moved inside because of the cool and changing weather. The thirty five folks attending the concert heard Southern Oregon’s own Pete Herzog who opened the first set. Then headliner George Mann entertained the crowd with stories and song for the second set. The last song of the evening Woody Guthrie’s “This Land is Your Land” had Herzog and Mann strumming guitars and leading the singalong with a tune we all know and love to sing.
