Award-winning songwriter Janis Ian will perform at the Mauch Chunk Opera House this Friday.

The stop in Carbon County is part of a 10-day tour throughout the northeast.

"It's a solo show, just me and the guitar," said Ian. "We just finished two sold-out crowds in Providence, where I've never played before. I think people have a better time than they expect."

When Janis Ian was launched into the spotlight in 1967 with "Society's Child," a song about an interracial relationship and a white girl's disapproving parents, she tapped into the nation's growing rage over interracial relationships.

"Society's Child" was written by Ian when she was just 14 years old. The song was banned from many radio stations, and one station in Atlanta that did play the song was burned down.
