5/9/2019 - The Rutledge Summer Series: A Universe of Stories Willie and Jan Perform “Remembering 1969… Moon Landing, Woodstock and More”

On Friday, May 31, 2019 from 7-8:30pm, in the Kingsley Room, Willie and Jan will return to the Southbury Public Library to perform the music of Crosby, Stills, and Nash, Arlo Gunthrie, Joni Mitchell, The Band, Credence Clearwater Revival, and more.

Come to our Kickoff to our space-themed summer series and listen to the songs of 1969. 1969 was the year of the moon landing and Woodstock. Willie and Jan return to the Southbury Public Library perform the music of Crosby, Stills & Nash, Arlo Guthrie, Joni Mitchell, The Band, Credence Clearwater Revival and more. Get into the groove and listen to the 1960's tunes!

Willie Nininger is an entertaining and versatile Singer-Songwriter-Guitarist, well known for his extensive repertoire, spontaneous sense of humor and flat-picking guitar technique. Willie plays in clubs and concerts across the US and Europe. He has written songs for the “Captain Kangaroo Show” and kids’ TV “After School Specials” and has appeared on TV variety shows. He performs the National Anthem for the NY Mets annually.

Jan Scruggs, a lover of harmony, has a keen knack for impersonation, replicating voices in song from Skeeter Davis – “End of the World,” to a comedic rendering of the “All in the Family” theme song as Jean Stapleton. Jan sings and plays guitar with Willie and his band up and down the east coast and in England. She and Willie perform theme shows such as Irish, country, holiday, tropical, TV & movie songs, famous duets, oldies, originals, and tributes to such performers as the Beatles, Carole King/James Taylor, Paul Simon, Simon & Garfunkel, Leonard Cohen, Phil Ochs, and many more.

Like all Southbury Public Library programs, this presentation is free to attend and open to anyone regardless of town of residency. Space is limited and registration is required. Please call 203-262-0626 ext. 130 to register. The Rutledge Summer Series was made possible by the Charles H. and Ella Emery Rutledge Fund.
