Swords Into Plowshares Peace Center and Gallery invites you
to a time and place to kick back and relax with friends
at our new Peace Cafe in the gallery for a summer evening
with the music of Julie Beutel in a coffeehouse setting.
The evening will include a light meal of soup and bread with coffee, tea and lemonade.
Singer, song-leader, guitarist, teacher, activist & mother
Julie Beutel is a Detroit native.
She has traveled in several countries in Europe and Central America,
working with Witness for Peace in Nicaragua during the war for almost 2 years.
She sings at coffeehouses, concerts, fundraisers, funerals,
memorial services, weddings, schools, libraries,
senior centers, and house concerts. She has sung in jails,
subway stations in Europe, soup kitchens, bars,
nursing homes, churches, trains, plays, and peace marches.
She has sung at the bedside of dying friends.
She sang to a crowd of over 20,000 in DC (part of an anti-nuclear march),
and once sang to 248 empty chairs. (There were two people in the audience.)
She has hosted more than 55 house concerts in her home
featuring local acoustic musicians, and has led sacred singing/drumming circles.
Julie is not afraid to address painful, awkward, controversial or funny issues
in the songs she sings. She especially loves the chance to sing what she
passionately feels is the truth.
