Description

At Town Hall on CD

In February 1965, Norman Petty recorded Carolyn Hester in concert at New York City's Town Hall. Hester's clear, keening voice, accompanied by George Tomsco's guitar, poured forth with the combination of wistfulness and idealism that characterized the era's folk movement. Equally at home with traditional songs and the work of the era's singer/songwriters (among them Tom Paxton and Phil Ochs), and unafraid of something as ambitious as her own musical setting of Whitman's Captain, My Captain, Hester conveys an intimate involvement with everything she sings. This 24-song CD is a wonderful document of special concert by an overlooked treasure of the folk era.
