Description

Grammy Award winner and Pop icon Maureen McGovern’s moving musical memoir chronicles the moments that define the Baby Boomer generation, from the hope-filled years of the 1960s, through the dark years of Vietnam, Watergate, the Civil Rights Movement, the AIDS crisis, and on to today and the hope of a better tomorrow. Best known for her breakout hit, the Academy Award-winning “The Morning After,” McGovern returns to her roots as a folk singer as she performs the classic songs The New York Times has dubbed “the second half of the Great American Songbook,” including the music of Bob Dylan, Carole King, Randy Newman, The Beatles, Laura Nyro, and many more.
