Jerry Burgan

Jerry Burgan who is the co-founder of the 1960’s folk rock group, “We Five”.   uses his music to tell stories about America.  The focus of his show is getting to the roots of the folk music that many of us grew up on.   In his show, he tells the stories of the people who brought the folk music of America to life.

 

This is the second time Jerry has played at our venue.  His wife, Debbie also from “We Five” joined him along with their long life friend Tholow Chan who accompanied them on harmony vocals and bass.

The three voices blended well making it obvious that they have been playing together for a long time.  Jerry’s stories behind the songs gave us insight and new information that many of had not heard before.
