Richard Barone – “Sorrows & Promises: Greenwich Village in the 1960’s” with Steve Addabbo
In the 1960’s, NYC’s Greenwich Village was the epicenter of a revolutionary movement in the history of American music. A new wave of writers and performers, inspired by the folk revival of the late fifties, created introspective, socially-aware, deeply personal songs that deserve to be considered as a key part of the American Songbook. These writers – Bob Dylan, Tim Hardin, Richard Fariña, Fred Neil and Phil Ochs, to name just a few – changed the “folk” repertoire from traditional songs to songs sprung from personal, contemporary experience. This freewheeling evening, featuring songs from Richard Barone’s new album “Sorrows & Promises” and more, pays tribute to that exciting era, exploring the lasting legacy of artists and songs that still resonate today. Richard will be joined by Steve Addabbo and special guests to be announced.
Copies of "Sorrows & Promises" will be available on LP and CD for purchase and signing.
