An Evening with Roger McGuinn
Co-Founder of the Byrds
Saturday, May 2 at 7 p.m.
As the leader of the influential 60s band The Byrds, Roger McGuinn was on the leading edge of music. Combining the rock beat of the Beatles with the folk sensibilities of Bob Dylan, The Byrds created the genre known as “folk-rock.” McGuinn’s solo career has yielded 10 albums and a Grammy nomination. Experience his signature 12-string Rickenbacker guitar technique and you’ll know you’re witnessing a music legend.
"McGuinn's sparkling, chordal 12-string Rickenbacker riffs on the Byrds' early hits were the sonic bridge between folk and rock." - Rolling Stone
