Keith Crocker

Join us as we trace the creation of the folk rock movement by analyzing the influence of

Bob Dylan on the Beatles and the Beatles’ effect on electronic sound of the Byrds. Dylan’s

introspective lyrics brought a mature subject matter to the forefront of the Beatles’ writing,

yet the Beatles’ twangy guitar sound bounced back to the United States and gave an

electrical undercurrent to folk fused music of the Byrds. Trace the power of inspiration via

lyrical analysis and clips of each artist in action.

1 – 2:30 p.m.1 session

Monday, January 23Fee: $30

I'm registered! Come join the fun...
