Grammy Award winner and pop icon Maureen McGovern’s moving musical memoir chronicles the hope-filled years of the 1960s, through the dark years of Vietnam, Watergate, and the Civil Rights Movement, the AIDS crisis, and on to today and the hope of a better tomorrow.. Best known for her breakout hit, the Academy Award-winning “The Morning After,” McGovern returns to her roots as a folk singer as she performs the classic songs The New York Times has dubbed “the second half of the Great American Songbook,” including Bob Dylan’s “The Times They Are a-Changin,’” Carole King’s “You’ve Got a Friend,” The Beatles’ “Let it Be,” Joni Mitchell’s “All I Want,” Paul Simon’s “America,” Laura Nyro’s “And When I Die,” and many more.
