The next Middleburgh Library concert will be at 7 p.m. Wednesday, featuring political satire singer Roy Zimmerman. Zimmerman’s “decidedly lefty” original songs are about class warfare, creationism, same-sex marriage, guns, marijuana, abstinence, Republicans, ignorance, war and greed, according to a media release.

In 12 albums over 20 years and on stages, screens and airwaves across America, Zimmerman has brought the sting of satire to the struggle for peace and social justice, hte r elease said.  Zimmerman’s stage show “Live From theStarving Ear” is 90 minutes of original satirical songs, many of them
co-written with his wife, Melanie Harby.

Zimmerman founded and wrote all the material  for the comedy folk quartet The Foremen, who recorded four albums, two of them for Warner/ Reprise Records. The Foremen were featured on NPR’s “All Things Considered,” and many other syndicated talk radio shows.
