Featuring Beckie Menzie, Laura Freeman, and Marianne Murphy Orland
Sunday, Sept. 16, 2 p.m. and 5:30 p.m.
Join Laura Freeman, Beckie Menzie and Marianne Murphy Orland as they celebrate the ladies of the ’60s: Leslie Gore, Mary Wells, The Supremes, and more. When we talk about music from the 1960s, most people think of Bob Dylan, The Beatles and Jimmy Hendricks, but that is really just part of the story! In a small window of about eight years, music changed forever with the birth of a genre most historians don’t even acknowledge – the birth of Bubble Gum Pop. Suddenly, the airwaves were jumping with the sound of women. No–girls…teenage girls and their teenage problems. Join Laura, Beckie and Marianne as they celebrate the sounds of The Vandellas, The Marvelettes, The Supremes, The Ronettes, Dionne, Dusty, Leslie, Mary and more!
