Even before the “Beatnik Riots” of 1961, NYC’s Greenwich Village was the epicenter of a revolutionary movement in the history of American music and culture. In the early 1960s and throughout the decade, a new wave of writers and performers, inspired by the folk revival of the fifties, created socially-aware and deeply personal songs that deserve to be considered as an important part of the American Songbook.

These writers – Bob Dylan, Richard Fariña, Janis Ian, Phil Ochs, to name just a few – changed the “folk” repertoire from traditional songs to songs sprung from personal, contemporary experience and the nation’s headlines; raising the level of political self-expression to high art. Message and music merged to became the voice of a generation.

This freewheeling evening features and is hosted by Richard Barone, who pays tribute to that exciting era on his recent album, “Sorrows and Promises” (produced by Steve Addabbo, who also performs in the show). Richard celebrates the lasting legacy of that pivotal decade with an eclectic roster of friends and special guests performing songs that resonate just as strongly today.
