The “Beat Generation” - A Cultural Review of the 1950s Through Music is a multimedia presentation that highlights the cultural nuances of the 1950s. This presentation features live acoustic music and audience sing-alongs, coupled with audio and video clips highlighting the best (and sometimes the worst) of the 1950s. The decade of the 1950s conjures up images of the Korean War, the beginnings of the Cold War, the Civil Rights movement, the Hula-Hoop, and Elvis, to name just a few. The music reflected the times and we pay tribute in this presentation to many of the greats: Chuck Berry, Buddy Holly, Jerry Lee Lewis, Ray Charles, Little Richard, James Brown, Fats Domino, Pat Boone, and others. This hour-long presentation is suitable for all ages and it is family-friendly.

The presenter is Fran Hart, founding member of the Beatles tribute band 4EverFab. This program is supported in part by a grant from the Charlton Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.

No registration is required. Additional parking across Main Street at Town Hall.
