Celebrate Memorial Day next Monday at the Lobero Theatre with an evening of great American folk music, beginning at 7:30 p.m., preceded by a buffet from Woody’s Bodacious BBQ at 5:30 p.m. in the tent behind the Lobero. There’s a second performance on Tuesday evening, May 28 at 7:30 p.m. “The Lonesome Travelers in Concert” is a musical event that takes audiences on a journey down the rivers and streams of American Folk -- from the hills of Appalachia to the nightclubs of San Francisco and New York; from the 1920s to the 1960s. Written and directed by third-generation Santa Barbara native James O’Neil (an Ovation and NAACP Award-winner), with Musical Direction by Tony nominee Dan Wheetman and Trevor Wheetman, the concert is by nine artists who create musical portraits inspired by folk immortals such as Pete Seeger, Woody Guthrie, Joan Baez, Bob Dylan, The Carter Family, Cisco Houston, The Almanac Singers, The Weavers, The Kingston Trio, Peter Paul & Mary and others whose music and influence changed American music – and America itself – forever.
