Music at Lily Pads presents I’ve Got a Song – A Living History of the McCarthy Era


Music at Lily Pads is pleased to present A Celebration of the McCarthy Era, featuring artists Nancy Hood and Barry Brown.

Written and performed by Nancy Hood with narration and musical accompaniment by Barry Brown, “I’ve Got A Song!” depicts Nancy’s childhood experiences growing up in a leftist family during the McCarthy Era. Complementing the stories is a musical selection ranging from spirituals to union songs, haunting love ballads to humorous tunes of social significance. A backdrop of family photographs and newspaper clippings completes this living history lesson that spans the mid-‘40s through the early ‘60s. Evoking laughter and tears, this program draws the audience into a child’s courageous struggle with adversity and persecution.
