Music Memoir by Charlie Karp at WHS @ Westport Historical Society Tickets
Aug 21 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Music Memoir by Charlie Karp at WHS @ Westport Historical Society |  |  |

On Monday, August 21st, from 7 to 8:30 pm, music legend Charlie Karp brings his “Musical Memoir” to Westport Historical Society. Doors open at 6:30 pm.

Ever since he opened for The Doors while still at Coleytown Junior High, Charlie Karp has been making his mark on the world of music.

Karp became a local legend in 1970 when, in the middle of his junior year at Staples High School, he was invited to join the Buddy Miles Band. At age 16, after recording his first 45, Karp began touring internationally with Miles and contributed an original song to the band’s renowned Them Changes album. He opened for Jimi Hendrix at The Forum in Los Angeles and for Three Dog Night at the Cotton Bowl, recorded with Arthur Lee, and got his own record contract with RCA Records as the co-founder of White Chocolate with David Hull – all before age 20. From this unique perch, Charlie Karp had an up-close look at some of the all-time rock greats, while witnessing the transformation of the music industry.

Karp’s musical experiences have found their way into a new memoir, and now he will share some of those stories while performing the music that inspired him. In “Charlie Karp’s Musical Memoir,” playing his guitar alongside a keyboardist, the renowned rocker brings alive the magical soundtrack that shaped the years 1964 through 1972.

But the show is more than a concert. It’s also an inside look at what happened when the music business moved from 45s to albums, and from small concert venues to dedicated rock clubs, arenas, and then stadiums.

Reservations strongly suggested, call 203-222-1424.

There is a $15 suggested donation and light refreshments will be served.
