Journey back to the era of the 60's and 70's coffee houses...when the scent of clove cigarettes and incense wafted through the air....great intellectual haiku were written on tattered coffee stained napkins... War was raging abroad...cries for peace and love were in the air....and poets and musicians ruled the "open mic" scene around the country...this was the setting that launched the careers of many of our folk favorites: James Taylor, Jim Croce, Harry Chapin, Cat Stephens, Bob Dylan, Arlo Gurthrie and more... Yes, "the times they were a changin'....!" Join Jim Witter in his celebration of some of the most loved folk favorites.
