Southern Folk - The Cumberland Trio!

Date: 
Thursday, August 9, 2012 - 7:00pm
Program: 

In 1962, three students at the University of Tennessee formed a folk group, calling themselves the Cumberland Trio. In 1963 they won the Annual Intercollegiate Folk competition in Jacksonville, FL, earning them a spot on ABC-TV's "Hootenanny" show and a recording contract. But success eluded them. Two of their early recording sessions-- a studio effort with Chet Atkins and a live concert recording-- would not be released for 40 years, and only recently was a third set of tracks, recorded in New York City in 1963-64 rediscovered and restored.

William Wallace & Derek Lovitch

Date: 
Sunday, August 5, 2012 - 9:00pm
Program: 

Inquiry welcomes WILLIAM WALLACE Director of the Worcester Historical Museum. Bill talks about the exciting new “Worcester Talks” program in which the museum is recording people talking about their experiences and memories of Worcester in the 1960s. This was a time of real transition for the city, a period of cultural change, political protests and the “smiley face”. So tune in, turn on and hear about how you can be part of this project OR go to the museum’s website for contact details at: http://www.worcesterhistory.org.
