Modern History of Folk Music from the 60s – Part 3
The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Florida International University is hosting a lecture series in collaboration with Brockway Memorial Library. This lecture is the third in a four-part series titled: Modern History of Folk Music from the 60s and will explore Country music as an alternative sound to the Beatles in the ’60s. From Loretta Lynn to Johnny Cash, country music was just another component of America’s historical roots. Enjoy the sounds of some well-known, and perhaps not so well-known sounds of country music from the 1960s.
This session is the second of four in a series; however, it is not necessary to attend all four Saturdays. Each session may be attended individually. Registration is required. This program is funded in part through a Florida Humanities Greater Good: Humanities in Academia in partnership with Florida International University.
Date/time: September 24 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm
Presented By:Michael Stock, host of "Folk & Acoustic Music" on WLRN
