The Great Folk Song Revival at Russell Library

The Caroline Doctorow Duo performs Saturday September 24 at Russell Library
On Saturday, September 24 at 1:30pm, the Caroline Doctorow Duo will perform The Great Folk Song Revival in the Hubbard Room of the Russell Library. The concert is the first of the Fall Concert Series.

Daughter of renowned author E.L. Doctorow, Caroline Doctorow's original folk songs and her very personal tribute to songwriters of the '60s IS folk music at its finest. She will be concentrating on the work of performers such as Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Tom Paxton, among others. This promises to offer the listener a unique perspective of this significant period in our country's musical history.

Caroline Doctorow is a chart-topping folksinger and songwriter, with a stirring voice that recalls Judy Collins and Sandy Denny. In addition to eleven solo albums, she released the first retrospective of the work of folk icons Richard and Mimi FariƱa called AnotheCountry which received critical acclaim. She has just concluded a sold-out tour of venues in Tennessee, North Carolina, and Arkansas.

All programs at the library are free. The next concert in the series is presented by the classical FaReLa Duo on November 5. On December 8, Emil Altschuler and Thomas Pandolfi will present a night of Gershwin compositions.

This concert has been funded by The Friends' of Russell Library.
