Slated to perform this year are Chris Buhalis; Wanda Degen; Michael Hough; Dick Siegel; Laz, San and Emily Slomovits; and Paul Tinkerhess.

As a musician, songwriter and activist, Seeger's songs were an integral part of the protest movement in the 1960s. "If I Had a Hammer," "Where Have All the Flowers Gone" and "Turn, Turn, Turn" are but a few of the songs made famous by him and other artists.

Thursday, May 2, 2013. 8 p.m. $10. The Ark is located at 316 S. Main St., Ann Arbor. 734-761-1800.
