Word*Rock*&Sword returns for Year 4 at Le Poisson Rouge. This concert is a part of the eight day city-wide Word*Rock*&Sword: A Festival Celebration of Women’s Lives. Founded by Singer/Composer/Producer /Activist Toshi Reagon as a call to women and all the people who love them, Word*Rock*&Sword aims to put an end to violence and inequality for women on the planet. They also celebrate, uplift, and share their gifts with our communities.
Toshi Reagon is a versatile singer, songwriter, and musician whose inspiring work spans across American folk to funk to blues. Her musical mastery has landed her various awards as well as gigs at power venues including Carnegie Hall and Madison Square Garden, but Reagon can just as likely be found performing at a local intimate club or music festival, either solo or with her band, BIGLovely.
