The next Middleburgh Library concert will be at 7 p.m. Wednesday, featuring political satire singer Roy Zimmerman. Zimmerman’s “decidedly lefty” original songs are about class warfare, creationism, same-sex marriage, guns, marijuana, abstinence, Republicans, ignorance, war and greed, according to a media release.
Zimmerman founded and wrote all the material for the comedy folk quartet The Foremen, who recorded four albums, two of them for Warner/ Reprise Records. The Foremen were featured on NPR’s “All Things Considered,” and many other syndicated talk radio shows.
