1960’s Show Recalls Turbulent Era, Raises $ for Foodbank
Civil rights sit-ins. Bell-bottoms. Anti-war marches. Student Power. Afros. Mini-skirts. Hippies. Riots. Space flights. The generation gap.
Those hallmarks of the turbulent 1960’s will be rekindled Friday November 8 at this year’s annual “Spirit of the ‘60’s Coffeehouse”:
Date: Friday Nov. 8 at 7:30 p.m.
King Avenue Methodist Church
299 W. King at Neil in Columbus 43201
Bill Cohen will lead a candlelit, musical, year-by-year journey through the era, with live and familiar 1960’s folksongs, “news reports” of sixties happenings, displays of anti-war buttons and posters, and far-out sixties fashions.
Plus, Bill will also challenge the audience with sixties trivia questions.
Proceeds from the suggested $10 donations (at the door) will go to the Mid-Ohio Food Bank. Refreshments will be available at no extra charge. Free parking is also available in the lots just South and West of the church.
The show begins at 7:30 p.m. in the church basement, but get there early for a good seat.
The program is suitable for ADULTS and MATURE TEENS.
It’s the 34th year of sixties coffeehouses for Bill. He’s performed the show more than a hundred times now at colleges, churches, synagogues, conferences, high schools, and middle schools across Ohio and beyond.
