More at Wheeler Library...

The Ovation Guitar, built in New Hartford Connecticut, played a significant role in the singer/songwriter explosion of the late 60's and throughout the 70's . The advancements in live sound systems led to ever increasing concert sizes requiring an acoustic guitar that was yet to be produced. The Ovation Guitar Company stepped up to fill that void and propeled the singer/songwriter to the forefront of the music scene in that era. In this presentation Jim will not only explore the history of the Ovation guitar, but the role it played during this period. Jim will present through pictures, stories and playing live music by artists such as Glen Campbell, Cat Stevens, Simon & Garfunkel, Bread, John Denver and more how these artists used the Ovation guitar to push their songs and careers to the top of the charts. Free & open to the public. Please register below.
