Marc Black, recent inductee into the NY Chapter of the Blues Hall of Fame, will perform the music program “A History of the 1950s and 60s through Popular Song” at 6:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 3, at the Winslow Public Library, 136 Halifax St. in Winslow.

This event can provide an opportunity for the audience to relive this colorful time in history.

In the presentation, Black uses a wide range of popular songs including surprising favorites like “Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini,” great rock tunes like “Blue Suede Shoes” and moving folk songs like Bob Dylan’s “Blowin’ in the Wind.” The show also will feature a performance of his own group’s hit from 1967 … “Happy by the Blades of Grass.”
