Traditional and contemporary, serious and silly, topical and whimsical. Betty and the Baby Boomers offer folk music in many forms. Their wide ranging repertoire is knitted together by outstanding harmony singing and distinctive arrangements which, while musically creative, call attention to the meanings of the songs, not just the style of presentation. Besides original songs from group member Jean McAvoy, the Boomers draw on sources including traditional folk, contemporary artists like Bruce Cockburn and Dougie MacClean, and classic folksingers of the likes of Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, and Phil Ochs.
“Betty and the Baby Boomers are a refreshing reminder of the halcyon days of American folk music.”
“Really, it’s rare around here to find a band with four good singers, and there was a real beauty to the bell-clear guitar accompaniment…for lovers of good folk they are highly recommended.” The Woodstock Times
