Hootenanny in Warren March 14

The Hootenanny Is Back !!!

East Bay folk-song balladeer Barry Brown is inviting all to bring their vocal chords and lungs to a sing-out of America’s favorite folk-songs at a revival of the mythic ‘1960s’ folk genre in Warren, RI.

The hootenanny is slated for the Coffee Depot (608-2553), a popular gathering spot in Warren, on Sunday March 14. The address is 501 Main Street. Starting time is 3:30pm. Song-sheets of the lyrics will be handed out to the crowd, and Brown’s guitar will supply the backing. He will also sing solos, including an original song or two from his newly released CD album Roots and Wings.

Special guests “The Raging Grannies” will sing several of their topical songs. Brown, a musician and guitar teacher for 45 years, will lead the people in familiar sing-out tunes. The songs will include traditional American folk-songs, as well as the many original tunes composed in the 1960s and performed by such legends as Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Pete Seeger, Johnny Cash, and Peter, Paul and Mary.

$5 suggested donation, $2 students. For further information call 254-2291.
