LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. --The Guess Who, Davy Jones, Herman's Hermits starring Peter Noone and other pop hit makers of the past reign over the Flower Power concert series April 21-June 11 at the 13th annual Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival in Walt Disney World Resort.
The spring shower of hit songs from the 1960s and '70s begins with opening-weekend performances by Nelson, known for their hit, "After the Rain," and covers of their father Ricky Nelson's music, including "Garden Party." Other oldie chart-toppers featured by some of the festival's 15 musical acts include "Happy Together," "Raindrops Keep Fallin' On My Head" and "Mrs. Brown You've Got a Lovely Daughter." The Guess Who, The Association, The Tokens and Tony Orlando of "Tony Orlando and Dawn" fame, are new to the concert this year. Arlo Guthrie, B.J. Thomas and The Turtles featuring Flo and Eddie are among returning acts in the musical series for the seven-week Flower Power concerts. Davy Jones, who has opened the festival during previous years, will perform this year during the popular Mother's Day Weekend.
