American Folk Music: Golden Ag
(OLLI Class and Events)
The folk music that emerged in the 1950's has lasted 60 years and will last a lot longer. Why? Because of the confluence of people, politics, philosophy and social awareness that came out of the post-war era which ushered in a new age of enlightenment. This course will examine the soundtrack of that period and how folk music became integrated into the larger world of popular music. Starring: Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, The Kingston Trio, Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Peter, Paul and Mary, Phil Ochs, Judy Collins, and many more.
