Rock-N-Roll 1965-1973: Vietnam-Woodstock (Metropolitan Museum of Art)
Travel back in time to 1965-1973 and hear the distinctive Rock & Roll music of the Vietnam War / Woodstock era. Songs from a variety of iconic performers, including a few from Motown that we’ve discussed in our previous sessions.
This is a musical history program where we will provide the historical context of various topics with an emphasis on pop culture (as opposed to music theory) including selected video recordings and biographical from various artists.
The historical items will be provided via pictures and video so viewing the presentation on-screen is recommended, but you are also free to just listen to the program via audio-only.
Your host for this program is Robert Kelleman, the founder/director of the non-profit community organization Washington, DC History & Culture.
