Event Details

The Folk Music Society of NY presents Happy Traum -- Coming of Age in the Greenwich Village Folk Revival and the Woodstock Scene (1954 - 1971), Friday, February 24th, 2017, 7:30PM at St. John's Church, 81 Christopher Street, Manhattan. Contribution: $25; members, $20; fulltime students and children under 15, $15. Doors open at 7 pm.  When online sales end, tickets will be available at the door on the night of the concert.

With colorful anecdotes and incisive memories, and the aid of vintage photos and music clips, Happy Traum relates some of his adventures as an active member of the New York folk revival; his arrest for civil disobedience; his participation in what has become known as the "Great Folk Singers Riot" in Washington Square; and his friendships with some of the leading folk artists of the day. Happy was a regular in the Washington Square Park jam sessions, studied blues guitar with Brownie McGhee, and met, among many others, a young Bob Dylan. Happy punctuates his remembrances with powerful renditions of songs and guitar solos from the folk era and beyond.
