Richard Barone: Sorrows & Promises Greenwich VIllage in the 1960's

Richard Barone's new album "Sorrows & Promises: Greenwich Village In The 1960s" casts light on the songs that sprang from the singer-songwriters in and around Greenwich Village during that pivotal decade. While Top-40 hit songs were being churned out uptown in the Brill Building and at 1650 Broadway, the downtown writers were weaving folk, blues, R&B and rock into songs that five decades later still sound fresh and inventive. Richard's choices cover a broad range of writers, from Buddy Holly, who was living and demoing songs in his Greenwich Village apartment just before he died, to up-and-comers like Paul Simon, John Sebastian (of the Lovin' Spoonful) and Janis Ian; to artists who were redefining folk music for a new generation: Bob Dylan, Phil Ochs, Tim Hardin, Fred Neil. Richard will perform songs from the album as well as other songs from the era, and will be joined by Steve Addabbo and special guests to be announced.
