Rock n Roll history this Wednesday November 9, in Wellsville


Cort Dunham and Friends to play at the David A. Howe, show starts at 6:30

The late 60s and early 70s was a golden era in Rock n’ Roll music in Wellsville and a time when dozens of young men and a few women, took their tambourines, guitars and their drum sets and made music that will be remembered when Cort Dunham takes the stage at 6:30 p.m, this Wednesday at the David A. Howe Library.

In June, Dunham was a featured speaker for the Thelma Rogers Genealogical and Historical Society. The talk was so crowded, entertaining, and popular, that the TRGHS program organizing committee decided to give him an encore.

“Cort’s talk was fun, very interesting and a treat for both locals and newcomers. It was so entertaining that when we walked out of the library that night, we were already talking about bringing him back,” one of the committee people recalled.

Dunham has played his guitar in many local bands over the years and with hundreds of other local musicians from the legendary Zoar to the 74 Boys at Music on the Lawn.

Dunham, with the help of another long-time vocalist and harmonica player Rich Shear will relive those musical glory days Wednesday in the Nancy Howe Auditorium.

“The 1970s were great years for Rock n’ Roll music in Wellsville, but I want to emphasize the people who made it fun and who were the roots of Rock n’ Roll music here,” Dunham said recently.

The public is once again invited to hear the stories, to see the memorabilia and to enjoy the music as they listen to the reminiscences of a Rock n’ Roll music man. The event is free and hosted by the Thelma Rogers Genealogical and Historical Society.
