March is Women’s History Month, and a pioneer of the women’s movement will be here on Friday. Holly Near has been combining music and activism since the 1960s.

She’ll perform a Ten Pound Fiddle concert on Friday night.

Near is noted for her anti-war and pro-feminist activism.

Current State's Melissa Benmark talked with Near about her start in television in the 1970s.
