History of the 50’s & 60’s Through Popular Song

Wednesday, July 26

8:00 PM, Library Lawn*  (*Weather permitting, we’ll move inside in chance of rain)

Sing along to the history of the 1950’s and 60’s through popular song.  Join New York Blues Hall of Fame inductee, Marc Black, for a musical tour through these two historically defining decades.  You’ll sing along with wonderful songs as diverse as “Itsy Bitsy, Teeny Weeny Yellow Polka -Dot Bikini” and “Blowin’ in the Wind,” as well as tunes by artists ranging from Dean Martin to George Harrison.  In addition to the music and discussion, this popular program features a slide show that’s sure to slide you right back in time.  Marc will also perform his own group’s top forty hit from 1967:  “Happy” by the Blades of Grass!

Chairs will be set up, but feel free to bring your own seat or a blanket!
