Central Hall, Westminster October 1966 concert program
Original vintage concert program for American folksinger and songwriter Carolyn Hester’s performance at the Central Hall in Westminster, London on Friday, 14th October, 1966, presented by Christian Aid, and with the Three City Four also on the bill. Dubbed “The Texas Songbird”, Carolyn Hester was one of many young Greenwich Village singers who rode the crest of the 1960s folk music wave. In 1961, Hester met Bob Dylan and Hester invited him to play on her third album. Hester remained relatively obscure throughout the folk revival. In the late 1960s, unable to succeed as a folk-rock artist, she explored psychedelic music as part of the Carolyn Hester Coalition before largely drifting out of the business. Together with Nancy Griffith, she performed Bob Dylan’s “Boots of Spanish Leather” at Dylan’s 30th Anniversary Tribute Concert at Madison Square Garden in 1992. Carolyn Hester continues to perform and tour to this day.
