Work o' the Weavers

Monday, January 24, 8:00 PM

Unitarian Universalist Church of Silver Spring
$14 advance/$17 door

If I Had A Hammer, Midnight Special, The Sloop John B, Goodnight, Irene, This Land Is Your Land, Tzena Tzena, Wimoweh, House Of The Rising Sun, Michael Row The Boat Ashore, were all written or first popularized by The Weavers who inspired the likes of The Kingston Trio, Peter, Paul & Mary, Joan Baez, Don McLean and Bob Dylan.
David Bernz, James Durst, Mark Murphy and Martha Sandefer trace the development of the Weavers from the ravages of the Great Depression and the burgeoning union movement through the Second World War and the McCarthy era to the 'folk boom' of the '60s. With faithful adherence to the original arrangements, Work o' The Weavers, provides an echo of their music and insight into a story that resonates in these troubled times when an American's right and indeed, responsibility to dissent is once again being challenged.
