July 8, 2018 @ 12:00 pm
Join us in the park for another free noontime concert. Bring a picnic and a lawn chair and enjoy!
The legendary ‘Folk Revival’ of the Sixties happened over 50 years ago but the songs of hope and social justice that defined it, still resonate today. Toronto folk roots duo ‘Sue and Dwight’ have created a series called ‘Where Have All The Folk Songs Gone’, a sing-a-long tribute to the songs of the late 1950’s and early 1960’s.
It’s a sing-a-long tribute because the songs are so familiar the audience couldn’t be stopped from singing along even if they tried! A four piece ensemble comprised of Sue and Dwight, Michelle Rumball, and Tony Laviola. takes the audience on a musical journey sharing stories and providing historical context highlighting the importance of the songs, which are performed in the style true to the period.
Audiences are transported back to the coffeehouses of the 1960’s Folk Revival. The show includes folk classics like ‘If I Had A Hammer’, ‘Blowin In The Wind’, ‘Walk Right In’, ‘Turn Turn Turn’, ‘Tom Dooley’, ‘Five Hundred Miles’ and many many more.
