Four Strong Winds: Celebrating Canadian Artists of the 60’s
March 27 @ 2:00 pm
As the sixties “Folk Revival” gained traction in the coffeehouses of Greenwich Village and other U.S. cities, a similar musical energy gripped Toronto’s Yorkville Village, where the likes of Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, Gordon Lightfoot, Ian & Sylvia, Leonard Cohen and Buffy Sainte Marie were starting their careers in one or more of the 40 clubs there. These Canadian artists highlight a show that begins with a nostalgic medley of songs that ruled U.S. pop charts in the fifties – songs that you didn’t know were from Canada.
In this powerful presentation, commentary, slides and live music are presented by Joan Friedenberg and Bill Bowen, who sing professionally as the PinkSlip Duo, while the lyrics are projected on a screen for audience sing along. Emotionally stirring music and intellectually stimulating narration and photography combine to make for a unique and unforgettable experience.
