“In the early 1960’s, there was a scene forming in the Greenwich Village neighborhood of New York City,” concert organizers said in a press release. “Emerging from legendary venues such as Café Wha and the Bitter End, this movement would blow new life into traditional folk music and produce such legendary and influential artists as Bob Dylan, Simon and Garfunkel, James Taylor, and Cat Stevens.

“Then came the 1990’s, which saw the resurrection of the storied Greenwich Village tradition through a band called Burlap to Cashmere. Celebrating folk music from the 60s, 70’s and beyond, this show takes audiences on a journey back in time to the magical stage of Greenwich Village, where it all began.”

The Harlingen Concert Association has been presenting internationally-acclaimed artists to the community since the 1930s. This all-volunteer, nonprofit organization is committed to enriching the cultural life of the Harlingen area through live performances.
