Rise Again Songbook (7.5" x 10")

“The best, most exhilarating and glorious history of the United States: a singing history. It is more than a lovely songbook – it is a play-work-fight-freedom hymnal.”
Studs Terkel, writing about Rise Up Singing

After more than a quarter of a century, the long wait is over! From the creators of the best-selling songbook Rise Up Singing comes its much-anticipated companion, Rise Again: A Group Singing Songbook, with preface by Pete Seeger and foreword by Billy Bragg.

Conceived, developed, and edited by folk singers Annie Patterson and Peter Blood under the guiding hand of the late Pete Seeger, Rise Again is a treasure trove of lyrics and chords to 1,200 well-loved songs spanning genres as diverse as British Invasion, blues, country, jazz, Motown, composed folk, traditional ballads, gospel, Broadway, early rock ’n’ roll, alternative/indie artists, “pub songs,” and much more, arranged in 39 themed chapters, with commentary on the songs, cross-reference listings at the end of each chapter, and Artists, Cultures, and Titles indexes.

The format is the same as in Rise Up Singing but all 1200 songs are new (i.e. there is no overlap with the songs in the first book). The book has been released in two versions (both spiral bound): the 7.5” x 10” format and the 9” x 12” format.

We are proud to have four of Pat’s songs—“Bound for Freedom”, “In This Life”, “We Are One” and “Swimming to the Other Side”—included in Rise Again as well as our co-written song, “Sing People Sing.” We performed at a number of wonderful songbook release concerts in the Fall of 2015, where Peter & Annie let audiences know that “Swimming to the Other Side” was the reason they decided to make this second volume. And, we were moved to discover that “Sing People Sing” became the title of one of the themed chapters. Pete Seeger, presente!
