Come to our Kickoff to our summer series and listen to the songs of 1960's. Willie and Jan return to the Southbury Public Library perform a variety of favorites from the decade including Simon & Garfunkel, the Beatles, the Everly Brothers, Sonny & Cher, Crosby, Stills & Nash, James Taylor and Carole King and more!
Willie Nininger of Southbury 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. While living in Switzerland he won the national “Entertainer of the Year” award. 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, Woodbury, 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 the 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.
