New Jersey Folk Revival Music – History and Tradition
October 24, 2017 @ 7:00 pm
Author and historian Michael Gabriele will discuss his recent book, New Jersey Folk Revival Music, and explore the chronological narrative of the evolution, traditions, and history of folk revival music in New Jersey.
Folk revival music is a “living history” that builds upon time-honored traditions. New Jersey Folk Revival Music documents the Garden State’s vast contributions to this musical genre and examines the effects of folk revival music on local history and culture, as well as how it has changed lives—those on stage and those in the audience.
A representative from the Folk Project will provide an overview of the 40 year history of the organization, and its role in the New Jersey folk music scene. A musician from The Folk Project will play for 15 minutes. A question and answer period will conclude this program.
The event will take place in the Library’s lower level meeting room.
The program is supported by the Friends of the Library.
