Also 4/18 Songs/Letters: Spanish Civil War
Hi Folks, (El Salvador Trip is June 26-July 3; slots available)
Here's a heads up about two great upcoming events:
Sat. April 12-Phil Ochs Song Night; Lexington, MA;
www.joyfulnoisecoffeehouse.org, or 781-861-0142. For years Sonny Ochs
(Phil's sister) has organized these very well attended events as
benefits for local causes. This event is at one of my favorite
coffeehouses, the Joyful Noise in Lexington, and includes Greg
Greenway, John Flynn, Magpie, Emma's Revolution, Chris and Meredith
Thompson, David Roth, and Yours Truly, (that would be Dean Stevens).
Fri. April 18; George and Ruth; Songs and Letters from the Spanish
Civil War; First Parish, Watertown, MA; www.tremedalconcerts.org;
Dan and Molly Watt team up with musicians Tony Saletan and Silvia
Miskoe to present a deeply moving tribute to Dan's parents, George
who served in the Lincoln Brigade, and Ruth, who wrote letters from
New York, and organized delivery of material aid. Their beautiful
correspondence is interspersed with multilingual songs from that
struggle against fascism in the years leading up to World War II.
this is a gem of an event, not to be missed!
...and while I have your attention, mark your calendars for Sat. Jun
14; Sweet Chariot Festival South in West Roxbury.
Love Ya!! DEAN
