Carl Tilchen sings at Paddy's
By Janet Van de Werfhorst
On Saturday, March 3, songwriter/singer Carl Tilchen honored the 100th anniversary of the birth of Woody Guthrie at Paddy's Coffee House in Union City by singing his most famous song, This Land Is Your Land. Carl's Concert also featured a Bruce Springsteen hit, We Take Care Of Our Own. Tilchen is best known for his original songs including: It Isn't Nice To Occupy Wall Street and The Guerilla Gardener. The audience wondered how safe is Google's Car No Driver and cheered for Tilchen's newest song We're all Face Bookin,'
Carl entertained the audience with his unique version of the jazz song Autumn Leaves in Spanish, and English, and The Hammer Song he learned from Pete Seeger and a gentle lullaby, Changes, by Phil Ochs. Everyone sang with Carl to Michael Row Your Boat Ashore.
