Joe Hickerson in Connecticut

Anyone who lives in the New Haven vicinity or who will be going there for the upcoming NOMAD festival has an opportunity to hear Joe Hickerson in an intimate house concert on Friday, November 14, 2003, beginning at 8:00 PM. That's the evening before the festival starts. The concert will take place in Hamden, CT, just north of New Haven. For information and directions, please call Willa Horowitz at (203) 248-0291 or e-mail her by using this clickable link:

For those who don't already know, Joe Hickerson is a "vintage pre-plugged paleo-acoustic folk singer." He is the person who, in 1960, added the last two stanzas to Pete Seeger's Where Have All the Flowers Gone? thus rounding out the story. Joe's remarkable recordings on the Folk Legacy and Folkways labels span a 45-year era from 1957 to 2002. Joe is also a folklorist, ethnomusicologist, archivist, and librarian, and for 35 years he served as the Librarian and Director of the Archives of Folk Song and Folk Culture for the United States Library of Congress.

If you cannot attend the house concert, you will have a chance to hear Joe Hickerson at the NOMAD festival itself. He will be performing at 1:00 PM on Saturday, November 15. Check the revised schedule when it becomes available
