We are eager to announce our headline and supporting acts, but you'll just have to wait!
The Mockingbirds, Choir
The Mockingbirds are Sacramento's first atheist choir, born from SacFAN in 2010. They sing secular-themed songs about religion, science, and pirates (to the pleasure of the Flying Spaghetti Monster).
Led by Andrea Griffith, the group has appeared at a number of area events including Darwin Day and HumanLight.
The Mockingbirds are performing twice at Freethought Day: at 12:30 PM and again at 5:05 PM.
Bill Potts, Poet
It's hard to say when Bill Potts got his start as a poet. Some are not sure he ever did. He did get some encouragement from one of his high school English teachers, who wrote on one of Bill's poems, "Doggerel, but good doggerel." This may explain Bill's later admiration of Ogden Nash (a veritable fountain of doggerel) and in particular Walt Kelly, the creator of Pogo. Kelly wrote both doggerel and stream-of-consciousness poetry (as Bill now does). As a strip cartoonist, Kelly specialized in political satire, with Pogo the possum and his fellow Okefenokee Swamp critters standing in for the real politicians. Bill has created some religious satire, although without cartoons or swamp critters.
Bill will be performing at our Reception and at Freethought Day, at 1:05 PM.
