Anne Feeney (born July 1, 1951) is a political activist, folk musician and singer-songwriter. Anne Feeney was born in Charleroi, Pennsylvania to Annabelle Runner and Edward J. Feeney. She has a sister, Kathleen, born May 3, 1953. The family moved to the Brookline section of the city of Pittsburgh in 1954. She graduated from Resurrection elementary school in 1964. Feeney graduated from Fontbonne Academy, a Catholic girls' high school run by the Sisters of St. Joseph, in 1968. After saving for one year, she purchased a Martin D-28 guitar that she retired from service after 40 years. The Vietnam War and Civil Rights Movement were influential events that shaped her politics and songwriting. Feeney was also influenced by her grandfather, William Patrick Feeney, who was a mineworkers' organizer and violinist who also used his music in the service of political and labor causes.show more
