Phil Ochs Song Night

Acoustic Cafe

Our Lady of Mercy Academy
25 Fremont Ave
Parkridge, NJ
USA

An all-star cast consisting of Kim & Reggie Harris, Magpie, John Flynn, Pat Wictor, Greg Greenway and George Wurzbach will perform THE SONGS OF PHIL OCHS at the Acoustic Café on Saturday, November 17th. Phil Ochs Song Nights commemorate the life and music of Phil Ochs, while also highlighting new talents making music in the spirit that Phil made his music. Phil was one of the seminal figures of the 60's Folk movement and his classic songs live today in the hearts of fans and performers alike. The evening will be hosted by Phil's sister Sonny Ochs, who is still an active figure in the folk community and she will add historical and biographical notes to put these songs in the context of the era and the times. Phil was perhaps the most incisive topical songwriter of the times, an artist whom Bob Dylan alternately admired and envied. A measure of the greatness of his songs is that most of them are still getting more and more relevant as they approach their 50th anniversaries. Tickets $20 advance online, $22 at the door. www.cafeacoustic.org 201-573-0718 Doors at 7:30. Refreshments, wheelchair accessible, free parking.Proceeds benefit the OLM Haiti scholarship program.
