The latest generation of our singalong shows, 'Get Together - 60’s Singalong' hit the ground singing last Wednesday night at the Free Times Cafe. A robust and energetic crowd of 57 filled the music room and spilled out into what we lovingly refer to as the VIP Lounge. No matter where you were seated though, the air was full of voices! The crowd included many of our wonderful regulars, brand new faces, and members of singing groups Choir!Choir!Choir! and Shout Sister Choir. The singalong movement is growing!
Beginning with the Folk Revival and ending with Woodstock, the 1960’s witnessed the Civil Rights Movement, Vietnam War, and the birth of the Peace and Love generation. The music of the 60’s reflected these transformations as traditional folk merged with electric instruments to give birth to the Folk Pop, Folk Rock and Singer Songwriter eras.
Picking up where our Folk Revival show left off in 1965, the new show covers songs all the way up to 1970. Old favorites like Puff The Magic Dragon and Walk Right In were joined by new favorites For What It’s Worth, California Dreamin’, The Sound of Silence, One Tin Soldier and others.
Here's the full setlist:
Thanks to everyone who came out to sing with us. It couldn't have been a better way to start the 'new' era.
