A 60s Folk Revival Concert: Part Two
Victoria Folk Music Society weekly gathering, Doors at 6:30, Feature Concert at 7:30pm — no open stage tonight. 1110 Hillside Avenue, $8 cash only, Everyone welcome!
Those of us (most of us?) who grew up in the 1960s will remember it as an exciting time of innovation, “trad” mixing with “singer/songwriter” to create a potent musical mix with sooooo many great songs! This evening, the second installment hosted by Denis Donnelly, will again be dedicated to the music of that era, with many more of your favourite Victoria Folk performers bringing in songs they learned then and that they have loved and never forgotten. We’ll have songs from groups like Peter Paul and Mary, maybe even the Kingston Trio, and then of course Dylan, Donovan, Joan Baez, Pete Seeger, Gordon Lightfoot, Tom Paxton... the list is endless! And we’ll not only have songs from the North American Revival but also songs from the wonderful British Folk Revival, as strong there as it was here, with musicians re-discovering the deep wealth of trad song in the British Isles. When Denis first started asking people to come and perform, the response was so overwhelming that we had to schedule two full evenings! Due to the VERY FULL program, there will not be time for any Open Stage performers tonight, but, as always, there will be boundless opportunity for all to sing-along throughout! Don’t miss this concert – Part One in April was epic and Part Two promises to be just as amazing! Plan to come early to get a seat as the April show sold-out!!
