Journey back in time as Caroline Doctorow performs folk songs of the early ’60s, including the work of icons such as Pete Seeger, Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Tom Paxton, Donovan, and Richard and Mimi Fariña. She will also perform some of her original compositions and discuss the songwriting process, as well as what it was like to grow up with her father, the late world-renowned author E.L. Doctorow.
Caroline Doctorow is a chart-topping Americana folk singer-songwriter, with a stirring voice that recalls Judy Collins and Sandy Denny, and a style that echoes the great ’60s folk songwriters. In addition to eleven solo albums, she also released the first retrospective of the work of Richard and Mimi Fariña, called Another Country, which received critical acclaim. Ms. Doctorow tours with her folk band The Steamrollers.
This event is made possible by Richard P. Garmany through a grant awarded by the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving. The Farmington Libraries will be hosting a variety of performances throughout the year as part of the Richard P. Garmany Music Series.
