The roots of American folk music with special guest star & folk legend Peter Yarrow of Peter, Paul & Mary! The story of folk music is truly the story of an ever-changing America. Experience the enduring power and popularity of American folk music with Lonesome Traveler, the stirring concert version of the acclaimed Off-Broadway musical that the New York Times called “illuminating… revelatory… achingly beautiful.” The show celebrates the music of great folk artists including Woody Guthrie, Lead Belly, Pete Seeger and the Weavers, Gordon Lightfoot, Peter, Paul and Mary, Bob Dylan, The Byrds, Donovan, Cat Stevens, Don McClean, James Taylor, Van Morrison with a special tribute to Leonard Cohen.
Charismatic young singers and multi-instrumentalists return us to a time when music brought us together – when it changed us. Complete with period costumes, this unforgettable concert event features romantic duets, patriotic songs, church hymns, union anthems and songs of protest, taking us from the 1920s to the 1960s and beyond– from the front porches of Appalachia to the nightclubs of San Francisco and New York – from the festival stages of Newport to the sound stages of Los Angeles. Songs like: “If I Had a Hammer,“ “Puff The Magic Dragon,” “This Land is Your Land,” “This Little Light of Mine,” “Blowin in the Wind”, “Like a Rolling Stones”, “Turn, Turn Turn”, “American Pie”, and “Hallelujah”.
Folk legend Peter Yarrow of Peter, Paul & Mary has enthusiastically endorsed the show and will be appearing in this production of the show as a special guest star.
An inspiring evening of great music, Lonesome Traveler: The Concert makes its Central Florida debut, presenting a revealing perspective of the roots forever embedded in our culture and bringing together audiences of all ages. Presented by Pop, Rock & Doo Wopp / Praia Entertainment Group.
