ALL AGES: THE BOSTON HARDCORE FILM

Date: 
Wednesday, August 1, 2012 - 10:00am
Program: 

Tonight on Inquiry we have a special discussion about the new documentary ALL AGES: THE BOSTON HARDCORE FILM. In the early 1980s a dynamic homegrown music scene evolved around local hardcore rock bands. This included bands like S.S. Decontrol, Gang Green and Jerry’s Kids. The fans were loyal, independent, and very supportive of the local musicians. This unique music scene became famous around the country for its fierce “do-it-yourself” ethic and chaotic audience participation.

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.

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.
