Sixty Plus Lecture: Folk Music Revival
Enjoy clips from the folk music of the early 1960s — music that we all know well. Included are performances by artists such as Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Judy Collins, Pete Seeger, and Peter, Paul & Mary. Richie will also discuss the folk revival’s impact on that era’s popular music and culture as well as how it influences music and artists today.
San Francisco resident Richie Unterberger is the author of numerous books on popular music including a two-part history of 1960s folk-rock. He teaches rock, folk and soul courses at several Bay Area universities including OLLI, SF State and Dominican University.
