Music with Betty and the Baby Boomers

16th September 2018 @ 2:00 pm

The 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

A refreshing reminder of the halcyon days of American folk music. – Sing Out! US folk song magazine
