GET TICKETS: 1st Anniversary Celebration!
1. Festival (Film)
Festival depicts the American folk revival of the 1960s through observing the annual Newport Folk Festival between 1963 and 1966. The film is an amazing historical document of a rich cultural moment, setting the stage for the more revolutionary developments of the later 60s and 70s. American genres from gospel to jazz to black spirituals readily intersected at the festival, producing a scene not of “folk music” but as a rich stew of Americana.
The big names are all there, including Pete Seeger, Peter, Paul and Mary, Donovan, Joan Baez and Bob Dylan. But unlike the more canonized and better-known 60s festival documentaries like Monterey Pop, Woodstock and Gimme Shelter, Festival presents a relatively diverse and inclusive notion of what would come to be called the “counterculture.”
2. Come make a “Who Are You” Collage! (All Ages)
Laura Numsen is a Maryland Institute, College of Art graduate who’s taught art, writing, and culture in schools, colleges, and eldercare settings. She also leads SoulCollage® and Vision Board retreats, helping people of all ages tap into their inner wisdom.
