Faith is a legend in her own time. She's been singing protest songs in SF since 1937 and she joined the Grannies a couple of years ago...at the age of 90

Mary always wears a clever sandwich board
§Grannies Eserat and Pat Make a Point
by Miel/Robertson Tuesday Oct 30th, 2007 12:28 AM

Profits for Exxon, Shell and Amoco? The cost is paid by YOU, sing Grannies "Essie" and Pat

§Cindy greets mandolin player Patrick Fahey
by Miel/Robertson Tuesday Oct 30th, 2007 12:28 AM

Patrick keeps us honest...we have to sing in a "key" in order for him to accompany us. Most Grannies could not sing in key if their life depended on it!
§You too can be a Granny-in-Training!
by Miel/Robertson Tuesday Oct 30th, 2007 12:28 AM

For young folks years away from getting gray hair and wrinkles, there is always the Granny Groupie or Granny-in-Training designation...see our GIT at left!
