A History of the 50’s & 60’s Through Popular Song

Press Release 5/9/17

WOODBRIDGE – Take a journey through time with eclectic folk-rocker Marc Black on Wednesday, May 24 at 7 p.m. at the Woodbridge Main Library. Marc will use a wide range of popular songs including surprising favorites like “Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini,” great rock tunes like “Blue Suede Shoes” and moving folk songs like Bob Dylan’s “Blowin’ in the Wind” to reflect on American history and culture.  He’ll be sure to get you singing and feeling good about where you are…and where you’ve been.

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.

In the words of folk legend, Happy Traum, “Marc is a master at spreading the joy of music.”

This event is open to free and open to all.  The Woodbridge Main Library is located at 1 George Frederick Plaza, Woodbridge, NJ.
