Betty and the Baby Boomers

22nd September 2017 @ 7:00 pm

Betty and the Baby Boomers

Clifden Arts Festival is delighted to welcome back Betty and the Baby Boomers. The group first performed here in 1993. Over many visits since, the students in the Boomers’ audiences back then have grown up; their children now listen to the group in Clifden’s schools. The Boomers are older too, but their music is timeless, featuring songs by Pete Seeger, Woody Guthrie, Bob Dylan, and others who shaped the ‘baby boomer’ generation in America.

Betty Boomer, Jean McAvoy, Paul Rubeo, Steve Stanne, and Robert Bard create distinctive arrangements for these classics as well as recent songs in that tradition, original compositions, and selections inspired by their experiences in Ireland.

“Exquisite harmonies that grab your heart and lyrics that tickle your brain and stir your soul” – Middletown NY Times Herald-Record
