Mount Vernon –It feels very much like we are living in a similar time and place as experienced in the 1960’s that generated many songs of protest. For those old enough to remember the 1960’s, thoughts and memories of “Blowin’ in the Wind”, “The Times They Are A-Changin””, “Give Peace a Chance” and many others lead many of the protests of the time. Leading us on a journey through the music of the 60’s and playing and singing examples of that era will be Jeff Putnam, a veteran of the Chautauqua Series.
The program will be presented on Thursday July 14 at ThePlace@TheWoodward (120 S. Main Street in downtown Mount Vernon) at 7 PM and is brought to you on a donation basis.
The Chautauqua Series, organized and brought to you by the members of Elixir and supported in part through a grant from the Ariel Foundation, is the only year round Chautauqua Series in the United States according to the Ohio Humanities Council, presenting first person living history programs and Lyceum style programs that present historical journeys on a variety of topics such as this program of looking at the protest and folk music of the 1960’s.
The doors will open at 6 PM and the program will start at this first floor facility at 7 PM. For those with special needs such as wheel chairs, walkers and strollers, the members of the staff of the Chautauqua’s will make every effort to accommodate your needs.
