SEBRING — William Florian, former lead singer of the New Christy Minstrels, will be performing at Highlands Hammock State Park on Saturday, April 8 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Florian’s performance is the last concert of this season’s Music in the Park series.
Florian, who played with one of the most popular folk groups of the 1960s, will take concert-goers on a musical journey of folk and pop from those years and the early 1970s. He will be playing the music of Peter, Paul & Mary, the Mamas & the Papas, Pete Seeger, John Denver, Neil Diamond, and the Beatles as well as his own original, inspiring compositions. Highly interactive, he will engage the audience in singing along on Beatles’ favorites and play tribute medleys to Bob Dylan, John Denver and Neil Diamond.
A master entertainer, Florian peppers his ‘Those Were the Days’ performance with amusing stories about breaking into the business and shares anecdotes and warm memories of his fellow artists. This wonderful, intimate and uplifting show will delight all ages and bring smiles to aging baby-boomers who will recall the resurgence of folk music in cafes, coffee houses and folk clubs in cities across America from New York’s Greenwich Village to the San Francisco Bay. CDs will be available for sale at the concert. Check out www.florianmusic.com.
