October: Folk Music
It's American as apple pie--folk music.
From 1957-1965, folk music legends like Pete Seeger led local get-togethers known as hootenannies while clubs, such as The Gaslight and Gerde's Folk City, dominated the Greenwich Village scene. A young musician fresh from the Iron Country of Minnesota began was influenced by Seeger, Joan Baez, the Kingston Trio, Woody Guthrie, Harry Belafonte, and others. His name? Bob Dylan.
At the same time and in the same clubs, new acts brought folk music to the mainstream. Peter, Paul, and Mary became the first folk music "superstars." Simon and Garfunkel joined the hit parade and more followed.
Mark entertains audiences with the folk songs they know and love. He also engages with storytelling, humor, and audience participation. Your group will love the interaction, memories, and great music.
