Family Folk Chorale celebrates The Traveling Wilburys
Arlington Town Hall - 730 Massachusetts Avenue, Arlington, MA, USA
This seasonâs concert will be a fun-loving intergenerational twist on the fabulously singable tunes of the Traveling Wilburys! Come lend your voice to the rich sound of Family Folk Choraleâs varied voices blended joyfully in harmony.
âWith such an array of rich harmonies among friends and palette of solo voicesâa full spectrum from Roy Orbisonâs stratospheric crooning to the grit of Dylan and Pettyâit is easy to hear the Traveling Wilburys music as a natural, stylistic match for what the Family Folk Chorale does.Â These are great songs for a heart-full and energizing afternoon of singing, dancing, enjoyment!âÂ Â
âChris Eastburn, Family Folk Chorale Artistic Director
Many will sing along easily to the well-known âHandle Me with Care,â and likely hum and sing the infectious âEnd of the Line (Itâs All Right)â for days afterwards!Â Weâll move with the kids as they perform the ultra fun âWilburyÂ Twist.âÂ Emotions will move as well, with moments of profound depth such as during George Harrisonâs âHeading for the Light,â further brightening the overall sunny fun of the program.Â Â
The set includes some other gems: Orbison and Pettyâs âYou Got It,â Harrisonâs tribute to John Lennon, âAll Those Years Agoâ (sung by the Wisdom group), and âGot My Mind Set on Youâ from the Harrison-Lynne recording.
