March 3rd at 7:00 pm West Bethesda Folk Music Concerts and The Williams County Historical Society will be presenting Jim Hall & Cindy Morgan and their program “Patriots & Protestors from the 1700s to Today”.
In the U.S., we have a long history of politically-themed music, with songs of protest and songs of patriotism both well-represented. Exploring the journey from the birth of the United States until present day, we’ll look at songs from both sides of the spectrum at crucial points in our nation’s history. Many of these songs are familiar, but they become more interesting as you hear the stories of how they came to be.
If you are looking for live performance music opportunities this summer you will find many options. Some free, others with an entry fee. Wineries and shopping malls can be good locations to check out.
