Twenty-one people braved the impending winter storm to attend our Friday at the Ford concert yesterday. Our performers were Kathryn and John Atwood, who sang songs heard at coffeehouses during the 1960s. My favorites of the night were "Mr. Tambourine Man," "Big Yellow Taxi," "You've Got to Hide Your Love Away," "North Country Maid," "5D," and "Song for a Seagull." Also, Paul Simon's "America." The couple would like to take their performance/lectures to other libraries. Contact information is on their website www.historysingers.com.
