Music + Revolution: Greenwich Village in the 1960s

Join us for a transporting evening of song and stories presented by musician and writer Richard Barone in celebration of his new book, Music + Revolution: Greenwich Village in the 1960s.

This edition of Soul of the City: Live @ MCNY will feature musical performances by Barone and guest artists including Steve Addabbo, David Amram, Guy Davis, Carolyn Hester, Terre Roche, and Suzanne Vega, reminiscences from artists who were part of the '60s Village scene, and a slide show of the photography of David Gahr.  

Special guests include Delores "Dee" Dixon, Stephen Petrus, Terri Thal, and Douglas Yeager.  A book signing with the author of Music + Revolution will follow.

Soul of the City: Live @ MCNY is a new series of intimate concerts featuring a wide range of New York City artists, both upcoming and veteran, performing acoustic sets and sharing the personal stories behind their music.

About the book, Music + Revolution: Greenwich Village in the 1960s:

Even before the Beatnik Riots of 1961, New York City’s Greenwich Village had been the epicenter of revolutionary developments in American music and culture. But the 1960s were a time of particular turbulence and creative ferment, as a new wave of writers and performers inspired by the folk music revival of the 1950s created socially aware and deeply personal songs that spoke to a generation like never before.

Message and music became one and mirrored society. Author Richard Barone unrolls a freewheeling historical narrative, peppered with personal stories and insights from those who were there.

About the Author:

Richard Barone is a recording artist, performer, producer, professor, and author. Since pioneering the indie rock scene in Hoboken, NJ as frontman of The Bongos, Barone has worked with artists in every musical genre including Donovan, Lou Reed, and folk legend Pete Seeger.

He has produced concert events at Carnegie Hall, the Hollywood Bowl, and SummerStage in Central Park. His album, Sorrows & Promises, is a celebration of the 1960s music scene in Greenwich Village, where Barone lives.

He currently teaches the course “Music + Revolution” at The New School’s School of Jazz & Contemporary Music, serves on the Advisory Board of Anthology Film Archives, has served on the Board of Governors of The Recording Academy (GRAMMYs), and hosts Folk Radio on WBAI New York.
