Details

Civil rights sit-ins. Bell-bottoms. Anti-war marches. Student Power. Afros. Mini-skirts. Hippies. Riots. Space flights. The generation gap. Those hallmarks of the turbulent 1960's will be rekindled Friday September 30 at this year's annual Spirit of the '60's Coffeehouse. The event takes place at 7:30 p.m. in the basement social hall of the King Avenue Methodist Church. It's at 299 W. King at Neil in Columbus. Bill Cohen will lead a candlelit, musical, year-by-year journey through the era, with live and familiar 1960's folksongs, news reports of sixties happenings, displays of anti-war buttons and posters, and far-out sixties fashions. Plus, Bill will challenge the audience with sixties trivia questions. Proceeds from the suggested $10 donations (at the door) will go to the Mid-Ohio Food Bank. Refreshments will be available at no extra charge. Free parking is also available in the lots just South and West of the church. The show begins at 7:30 p.m. in the church basement, but get there early for a good seat. The program is suitable for ADULTS and MATURE TEENS. It's the 31st year of sixties coffeehouses for Bill. He's performed the show more than a hundred times now at colleges, churches, synagogues, conferences, high schools, and middle schools across Ohio and beyond.
