New York Blues Hall of Fame inductee, Marc Black, will be your guide through an evening of song, storytelling and laughter through these two historically defining decades. You’ll celebrate wonderful songs as diverse as Itsy Bitsy, Teeny Weeny Yellow Polka -Dot Bikini and Blowin’ in the Wind, as well as tunes by artists ranging from Dean Martin to George Harrison. In addition to the music and conversation, this popular program features a slide show that’s sure to slide you right back in time. Marc will also perform his own group’s top forty hit from 1967 when he toured with The Doors, Neil Diamond, The Dave Clark Five and Van Morrison… ‘Happy’ by the ‘Blades of Grass’.

Marc Black is an eclectic folk-rocker who deals with life, and all its social and political challenges…one song at a time. Noted for his “timeless songs, deep grooves and excellent playing”, Marc was inducted into the New York Chapter of the Blues Hall of Fame in June of 2014.

He’s performed and recorded with many luminaries including Art Garfunkel, Rick Danko, Richie Havens, Taj Mahal and Pete Seeger. He was chosen by Levon Helm to play one of the Midnight Rambles and was recently named Folk Artist of the Year on ABC Radio. As legendary folk artist, Happy Traum, put it, ‘Marc is a master…spreading the joy of music with story and song’.
