PUTNEY – The Next Stage Arts Project and the Putney School are delighted to co-present a special live concert on Sunday, April 28, at 7 pm, featuring folk music icons from the film “For the Love of the Music The Club 47 Folk Revival.” Featured performers will include: iconic composer David Amram, Erik Lawrence of The Levon Helm Band, Alana Amram and The Rough Gems, Tim Eriksen and The Trio De Pumpkintown, Diamond Doves, Haley Reardon, and more. The concert will take place at Next Stage, 15 Kimball Hill.

“For the Love of the Music” is a documentary film exploring the rich history of Club 47, the iconic Cambridge, MA, folk music mecca from 1958 to 1968. Narrated by Peter Coyote, the film explores the influence the club had on a unique group of folk musicians, from the evolution of the ‘60s folk revival to the singer-songwriter era. The film, shot by Ezzie Films in Putney two years ago, culminated from a series of folk music events at the Putney School in 2011, based on an exhibition of photographs there from the New England Folk Music Archives. Several of the musicians in the film have strong ties to The Putney School, including a number of alumni.

The concert at Next Stage will celebrate the reunion of these extraordinary musicians, in the town where they first gathered.

Tickets are $25 or $20 for students and seniors and are available online at nextstagearts.org or Offerings in Putney. Proceeds from this event will benefit the Next Stage Arts Project and the Putney School.
