No fee | No registration

This program will feature a new book, New Jersey Folk Revival Music – History and Tradition, that is a chronological narrative on the evolution, traditions and history of folk revival music in New Jersey. The story begins in the colonial days of tavern revelers and fiddle players in the 1700’s and moves to the advent of the “Guitar Mania” phenomenon in the mid-1800’s; to monumental recordings made by Woody Guthrie, the Carter Family, Paul Robeson, Jimmie Rodgers, and Cecil Sharp at the Victor studios in Camden during the early 1900’s. Progressing through more recent periods, the inspirational concert performances by legendary artists Joan Baez, Pete Seeger, and Bob Dylan are explored. The development and growth of music festivals and organizations throughout the state and the rise of bluegrass and new grass music recognizes the achievements of world-class New Jersey musicians.

A lifelong Garden State resident, Michael Gabriele is a 1975 graduate of Montclair State University and has worked as a journalist and freelance writer for more than forty years. His book underlines the notion that folk revival music is a “living history” that builds upon time-honored traditions. We are pleased to welcome back Michael Gabriele for a return visit to Medford Leas after his popular program in May 2015 on his book, The History of Diners in New Jersey.
