Santa Cruz Indymedia & SubRosa are pleased to present Ryan Harvey from Baltimore, MD, engaging folk singer, incredible story teller, organizer and writer. He will be joined by Nomi, a fabulous folk from the Bay. Don't miss this show.

This event is a Record/CD release tour for Ryan Harvey's new album "Ordinary Heroes"!!

Ryan Harvey, a part of the Riot-Folk Collective, has been writing & performing in social justice activist circles for over 10 years. From intimate basement shows to large rallies, Ryan has been "making folk a threat again" with his songs being a critical analysis of war, oppression and movements of resistance.


Ryan is touring the United States and Europe this summer to release "Ordinary Heroes", a collaborative album with violinist/journalist/documentarian Michael Fox. The recording, which is dedicated to the life of Howard Zinn, explores contemporary political issues while emphasizing social movements in American history.

The aim of the album, Ryan says "is to spread a hope that's grounded in practicality, a hope that's born from an understanding that things improve when people organize to change them."

Ryan's songs can be downloaded for free at Songs and info from Riot-Folk members can be found at

As a collective, we agreed that the purpose of the website was to promote SubRosa, not to provide an online place for lively and invigorating debate. We hope that the space itself is where conversations on the nature of anarchism and local projects will take place. That said, we occasionally approve comments that are informative or reflect a viewpoint we feel it is important for website visitors to read.
