Calling All Folk Music Fans

On Sunday, December 3, 2017 at 2:00 PM, Ocean County Historical Society, 26 Hadley Avenue, Toms River, NJ, will host NJ resident, journalist, and freelance writer, Michael C. Gabriele.  This popular author will present via Power Point his third book on NJ history, New Jersey Folk Revival Music, History and Tradition.

Learn how NJ shaped folk revival music into an art form, beginning with the bawdy tunes sung in colonial-era taverns to the folk songs that echoed through the Pine Barrens, to the 1800s and “Guitar Mania,” through the 20th century studio recordings in Camden.
