Music + Revolution: Greenwich Village in the 1960s Brings Great Lineup To Central Park

(NEW YORK, NY) -- Richard Barone has lined up a star-studded cast for Music + Revolution: Greenwich Village in the 1960s on Sunday, August 12 at 7:00pm at SummerStage in Central Park.  It's an evening of songs by written by the artists who shaped the decade.  Admission is free.

From the beatnik riots to the summer of love, 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 alongside the pop songs being written uptown. These writers – Bob Dylan, Tim Hardin, Janis Ian, Fred Neil and Phil Ochs, to name just a few – changed the “folk” repertoire from traditional songs to songs sprung from personal, contemporary experience, as well as from the headlines. This freewheeling concert, hosted and curated by Richard Barone, who pays tribute to that exciting era on his recent album ‘Sorrows and Promises’, celebrates the lasting legacy of that pivotal decade along with an eclectic roster of artists from then and now performing songs that still resonate today.

Featured performers include Richard Barone (host/MC), John Sebastian, Jesse Colin Young (of The Youngbloods), Melanie, José Feliciano, Maria Muldaur, Jenni Muldaur, Marshall Crenshaw, Jeffrey Gaines, Nellie McKay, David Amram, Happy Traum, The Kennedys, Tammy Faye Starlite, Anthony DeCurtis (Rolling Stone editor), Cindy Lee Berryhill, Steve Addabbo, Joe McGinty, and Jeordie. Visuals provided by historian Stephen Petrus, co-author of Folk City. Special cameo appearances by Elvis Perkins, Syd Straw, WFUV’s John Platt and more.

Guests must follow the rules and regulations of neighborhood parks. Strollers are prohibited in the venue unless you are attending Central Park Family Day. Restricted items include glass bottles, cans, coolers, alcoholic beverages, controlled substances, weapons, folding chairs, bikes, scooters, rollerblades, skateboards, beach umbrellas, laser pointers, video cameras, selfie sticks, cameras with 100MM+ lenses, pets, and drones. Please note that all bags are subject to search and concert attendees may be hand-screened with an electronic wand by SummerStage security personnel.
