Family Folk Chorale Celebrates the Music of Creedence Clearwater Revivial
Family Folk Chorale
Sunday, November 17, 2019, 3-5pm
Arlington Town Hall
730 Mass Ave, Arlington, MA
Fifty years ago Creedence Clearwater Revival was the hottest selling band in the world, supplanting even the Beatles in 1969 and becoming one of the most beloved bands in the history of rock. CCR was powered by their lead guitarist and Grammy winning songwriter John Fogerty, a master of infectious melodies, powerful song structuring and evocative lyrics. Join us for a lively and inspiring afternoon to celebrate the music of CCR, which helped anchor the peace movement and won fans across generations.
Sing, clap and dance along with us to the familiar sounds of Proud Mary, Have You Ever Seen the Rain, Dont You Wish It Was True, Midnight Special, Down on the Corner, Fortunate Son, and many more.
Bruce Springsteen described Fogerty creating a world of childhood memory...a landscape of swamps, bayous, endless rivers...back porches, hound dogs chasing ghosts, and bad moon rising straight out of the blues tradition. With a series of albums chock-full of hit songs, Creedence virtually owned the US Billboard Top 40 in 69 and the early 70s.
Bring your friends and family, memories and anticipation to an afternoon you wont soon forget!
"The Family Folk Chorale is what folk music is all about or what it should be all about people coming together as a community, crossing generations, and singing because its what they love to do."
- Matt Smith, Manager,
legendary Club Passim, Harvard Square
