Library Fall Concert Series 2016
Sing Along to the History of the 1950’s and 60’s through Popular Song!
Join New York Blues Hall of Fame inductee, Marc Black, for a musical tour through these two historically defining decades. You’ll sing along with wonderful songs as diverse as Itsy Bitsy, Teeny Weeny Yellow Polka Dot Bikini and Blowin’ in the Wind, as well as tunes by artists ranging from Dean Martin to George Harrison. In addition to the music and discussion, this popular program features a slide show that’s sure to slide you right back in time. Marc will also perform his own group’s top forty hit from 1967… ‘Happy’ by the ‘Blades of Grass’.
Marc plays a finger style blues in the traditions of Mississippi Hurt and the great Tim Hardin. A proud road warrior, he was inducted into the New York Chapter of the Blues Hall of Fame in June of 2014. Marc has performed and recorded with Art Garfunkel, Taj Mahal, Richie Havens, Rick Danko and Pete Seeger to name a few. He was recently named Folk Artist of the Year on ABC Radio, and a winner at the Kerrville Folk
Festival. Marc’s song, No Fracking Way, recorded with John Sebastian, has become a worldwide anthem for the movement. His Pictures of the Highway CD has reached #6 on the Folk DJ Chart, while one of his youtube videos has been viewed more than 50,000 times! He has been very involved in campaigns for social and environmental justice, including his current project, a multimedia campaign called Sing for the Silenced.
In the words of folk legend, Happy Traum, “Marc is a master at spreading the joy of music.”
