"Folk Music and Protest in the Sixties." by Military Historian Larry Yates

Idea is to talk about folk music in the 1960s and how it changed as the decade became more violent. 

Larry  >Diplomatic/Military Historian

Larry has spoken to the Skeptics other times on titles like : "We Don't Need Stinking History", "The Cold War: What it Was and How We Survived to Talk About It" "Why We Go to war"  And now this.  This should be fun plus he said he will bring his banjo.

We'll go to the Blue Moose afterward.

    Where have all the folk songs gone? I’m just asking. Where have all the folk songs gone, long time ago. Where have all the folk songs gone? Off to YouTube everyone. They’ve all been digitized; stored and categorized.

    There's more, but I won't . . . What a great evening of revisiting songs of protest sung against war and injustice. Perhaps these songs deserve more credit for helping bring about the social upheavals of the 1960’s; they were more than just a backdrop to the era. Larry Yates did an outstanding job of taking us back in time with song and his talented handiwork on banjo and guitar. A great evening for all; thanks Larry for your insightful and entertaining presentation.
