As the leader of the influential 1960's group The Byrds, Roger McGuinn was on the leading edge, combining the rock beat of The Beatles with the folk sensibilities of Bob Dylan, to create the genre known as “folk-rock.” The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer brings his granny glasses, his jingle-jangling 12-string and his encyclopedic mastery of American music back for another solo flight of songs and stories — mixing many of rock’s timeless classics with a portfolio of traditional treasures from the singer-guitarist’s formidable Folk Den Project, which Rolling Stone called "damn near perfect".
Workshop and Guitar Circle: This workshop will include the history of The Byrds' musical revolution and contemporary technical information - highlighting the computer techniques McGuinn uses in recording. Bring your guitar to participate in the Guitar Circle! Please call 732.263.5715 to reserve your place.
