CT Folk at Home: Happy Traum
Time & Location
About the Event
In collaboration with River Spirit Music, CT Folk is pleased to present Happy Traum, with special guests John Sebastian and Cindy Cashdollar. Happy will tell his story in a combination of song and narrative, aided by vintage photos and music clips related to his participation in the New York folk revival, including the legendary 1961 “Folk Riot” in which musicians protested for the right to perform in Washington Square Park. Traum’s eloquent memories of the history he helped to make will be part of the performance; the audience will also enjoy the music for which Happy Traum is beloved.
River Spirit Music and CT Folk are also thrilled to announce that two of Happy's friends and well-loved Woodstock neighbors will also join him on the historic Bearsville Theater stage: John Sebastian (a mainstay of the Greenwich Village folk scene & frontman for the Lovin' Spoonful, with a further prodigious musical career) and Cindy Cashdollar (renowned dobro player and slide/steel guitarist).
