Songbirds: Women in Folk
Songbirds: Women in Folk By Patricia Shih A multi-media presentation with live audience-participation singing   Saturday, September 27th 3:00 pm   Multiple national award-winning singer-songwriter Patricia Shih brings a multi-media presentation to Manville Public Library.  In this show Patricia highlights five women – Ronnie Gilbert of the Weavers, Joan Baez, Mary Travers of Peter, Paul and Mary, Judy Collins and Joni Mitchell-- all giants in folk music who have influenced generations of contemporary artists.  Combining projected photos, recorded narration and music Ms. Shih brings the era of the great “folk boom” of the 1950s – 1970s straight into her listeners’ hearts and minds.   Some song samples will be original recordings from the artists themselves, but Patricia sings full versions of these artists’ most beloved songs live.   And, true to her mission of creating community and lifting spirits, she invites her audiences to sing with her.  This presentation is lively and spirited, touching on history, biography and music.    Registration for this event begins September 1st.
