Songs of the Vietnam War with the History Singers
Saturday, Nov. 11, 2023 2 – 3 p.m., Forest Park Public Library Austin Room
The History Singers (John and Kathryn Atwood) are live in concert at the Forest Park Public Library. The music of and about the Vietnam War, for and against, was heard in a variety of places: the radio, protest rallies, and in Vietnam where American fighting men accessed music — some of it their own version of protest songs — through the records they brought along and the bands hired to entertain them. Songs of the Vietnam War is a combination of all these musical genres and features live performance along with the playing of a few 45s. We look at all of this as a musical phenomenon; we don’t take sides one way or the other. The intense emotions created by the war expressed itself in the music and that’s what we present. We hope this program will help to bring healing and closure for our fighting men and bring that period to life for those too young to remember it. 7555 Jackson Blvd., Forest Park.
