So, what will you hear at our Folk Music Night?
You'll hear local talent performing traditional folk songs, as well as songs
written by such singer/songwriters as
Gordon Lightfoot, Jackson Browne, Tom Paxton, Harry Chapin, Paul Simon, James Taylor, John
Denver, John Prine, Joni Mitchell, and Laura Nyro. You'll probably argue that some of what
you hear isn't really folk music, and you'll be right! (For example, songs from
the Beatles and the Everly Brothers.) You'll also hear original compositions
performed by the up-and-coming local artists who have written them. You'll hear
music performed on guitar, piano, bass guitar, mandolin, banjo, fiddle, mountain (lap) dulcimer, flute,
harmonica, ukulele, autoharp, recorder, trumpet, tambourine, maracas, harp,
tibetan singing bowls, and maybe even a "harp
guitar". You might even hear yourself singing along. So, try us out. You'll be
glad you did!
