The Sixties Series: British Invasion & the American Pop/Rock Era  

This course explores the rise of many innovative artists that created new sounds that captivated a generation, and whose influence endures five decades later. Starting with the British pop and rock acts that invaded our shores in the 60’s (The Beatles, Dave Clark Five, The Animals) to the counterculture psychedelic and progressive groups (The Who, Pink Floyd, Cream). From our own shores we will discuss the remarkable Brill Building songwriters (Carole King, Burt Bacharach) to the art of Bob Dylan and Phil Spector to the California magic of Brian Wilson (Beach Boys). Our journey will examine folk rock, r & b, pop/soul and the infamous rock festivals that defined an era.
