Songs of the Sixties

SONGS OF THE SIXTIES: You don’t want to miss an unusual and free presentation at 6:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 15, in the first floor auditorium of the Augusta-Richmond County main library, 823 Telfair St., when longtime weekly music columnist, national book author and magazine writer Don “Ramblin’” Rhodes presents his informative program on 1960s civil rights freedom folk songs including Bob Dylan’s Blowin’ In The Wind; Peter, Paul & Mary’s If I Had A Hammer, Sam Cooke’s A Change Is Gonna Come, John Legend’s Woke Up This Morning and others. Videos of some performers will be intertwined with live renditions by Barbara Walker and Darlene Champagne singing and playing their guitars. This has been only presented once before at the Nancy Carson library in North Augusta and drew a large crowd who sang along on the grand finale number. Rhodes has been writing about music for 55 years and has three times won the Greater Augusta Arts Council’s Media Person of the Year Award as well as the Louis C. Harris Media Award from the West Augusta Rotary Club. He also has been a nominee to the Georgia Music Hall of Fame in the non performing category. Please call the Georgia Heritage Room for details. 706-826-1511
