“The Folk Revival, Country Music, and Social Justice” at ICMC 2014

Diane Diekman, shown with James Akenson and Don CusicNashville, TN -- The International Country Music Conference (ICMC) is gearing up for their 2014 event. Each year, the ICMC presents topics of interest on bluegrass and traditional country music. The ICMC will do the ‘Big Reveal’ for the ICMC 2014 Thursday evening 22 May keynote event. Of course, the preceding social hour—with some great food—will feature socializing and informal picking. We are very pleased to announce that long term ICMC friend Ron Cohen of Indiana University Northwest and internationally known singer songwriter, activist Si Kahn will be presenting “The Folk Revival, Country Music, and Social Justice.” Ron Cohen has numerous books on the Folk Revival such as “Rainbow Quest: The Folk Music Revival and American Society, 1940-1970” and related topics and has frequently presented at ICMC. Cybergrass regularly covers the ICMC which frequently has quality bluegrass subject matter.

Theme by Danetsoft and Danang Probo Sayekti inspired by Maksimer
