The Northwest Park Concert Series offers an evening of folk music with Betty and the Baby Boomers on April 6th at 7:30 p.m. at the Northwest Park Nature Center in Windsor, Ct.
To many Hudson Valley residents, Betty and the Baby Boomers (Betty Boomer, Jean Valla McAvoy, Paul Rubeo, Robert Bard, and Steve Stanne) are the voice of the Hudson River, having taught and sung about the river for more than 30 years. They have been recognized regionally – they “sing and play old-school folk like it was brand spanking new” (Kingston’s Daily Freeman); nationally – “a refreshing reminder of the halcyon days of American folk music” (Sing Out!); and internationally, with many bookings over the years for Clifden Arts Week, a well-known festival in Ireland. As Clearwater staff and board members, the Boomers worked with Pete Seeger, who regularly performed one of McAvoy’s original songs, “Down by the River,” included on his Grammy-winning album Tomorrow’s Children with the Rivertown Kids. The group wraps distinctive four-part harmonies and sparkling guitar and Dobro licks around songs from Seeger, Phil Ochs, and others who inspired their generation, plus contemporary and original material in that tradition.
The Northwest Park Nature Center is a smoke free, handicap accessible facility located in Windsor, Connecticut. Tickets are $17. For ticket information and reservations go on line at www.northwestpark.org or call the Park at 860-285-1886
