Chatting About Music– The Counterculture of the Sixties: Where Have All The Flowers Gone?
Presented by Garry McGurrin
Wenesday, November 21
10:30am – 11:30am
Remember the pop music of the sixties?  An Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka-Dot Bikini? Send Me the Pillow You Dream On? Dance the Loco-Motion?  “For me, the rock & roll music wasn’t serious,” declared Bob Dylan, but “folk music was filled with more despair, much deeper feelings.” He was part of a counterculture that sported beads and headbands, and developed a taste for hallucinogenic drugs and a disdain for capitalist values. Come join us on this fun and interactive discussion. Let’s chat about music! This is a free presentation. All in the community are welcome and encouraged to attend. Please note and respect that our centre is scent free. Please register in person or call Front Reception to reserve your spot.
