Presented by

Folk Roots Pioneers: A Hootenanny

With Sheldon Shands and Guests

Woody Guthrie, who had a Jewish wife and wrote klezmer music, is the undisputed progenitor of folk music, as it came to be known in the late ‘50s when singers such as Dave Van Ronk began to rule a cool new coffee house scene that Bob Dylan was about to blow wide open. Our concert will focus on these early years - the era of Pete Seeger and the Weavers - before Joni, and Joan and Judy began singing for “fortunes and those velvet curtain calls.
