Kings of Friday Night —The Lincolns
by A.J.B. Johnston • PHOTOS • 192 pages
SMALL-TOWN NOVA SCOTIA and the life-altering power of 1960s rock-and-roll come alive in this thoroughly researched and personal book about The Lincolns, the legendary Truro band that reached across cultural, racial, and religious divides to kindle hope and change in audiences across Nova Scotia and New Brunswick—at dances and on campuses, from Yarmouth to Sydney, and north to Sackville, Moncton, and Saint John.
Award-winning historian John Johnston has interviewed widely to portray not just the musicians and their audiences, but the era in which they flourished and the issues of the day.
