Pete Seeger and Bob Dylan Birthday Month!

Both Pete Seeger and Bob Dylan were born in May so we did mini-set tributes to each of them into last night’s monthly singalong at the Free Times Cafe. That’s not hard to do as both were such prolific and huge contributors to the Folk Revival.

We had a great crowd...a nice mixture of new folks and regulars. It was multigenerational too! One young gal who came across a listing for the show online, brought her 1960’s folk fan parents to club.  And a son who brought his mom for the first time to last month’s show and they decided then and there they would become regulars!

We debuted four new songs last night...’Eve Of Destruction’, ‘John Henry’, ‘Girl From The North’ Country, and ‘There’s A Meetin Here Tonight’. 

We’ve decided to continue our monthly show at the Free Times Cafe throughout the Summer again this year. Rumour has it the June show with it’s Canada 150 theme will be a hot ticket so reserve early.
