S17A7 The Music of the Sixties Part One: Pure Pop and Lonely Avenues

The Music of the Sixties is a two-part series that will cover the music trends and styles of that decade and how they wove into the social trends of the era. Part one covers the years 1959-1966, and the focus will be on the styles that formed to appeal to the record buyer: Motown, Memphis Soul, New Orleans Rock and Roll, Brill Building Pop, and The British Invasion. Jazz Trends and the Folk Movement will also be covered. Part one will end with the release of The Beatles' album "Revolver" which ushered in a new era in record making.

Instructor: Bob Driver has been a blues performer/instructor for the past forty years and a full time guitar instructor/performer since 2002. His music education began in the 1970's when he played informally with traditional bluesmen such as John Jackson, Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown and Buddy Moss in their homes or at festivals. In the decade between 1980 and 1990 he opened for, or performed with, nationally known artists such as Jorma Kaukonen, Roy Bookbinder, Duck Baker, John Hartford, Reverend Billy Wirtz, Catfish Hodge and many others. In the summers of 2006 and 2007, Bob was an artist in residence at Camp Horizons in Keezletown, Virginia overseeing their guitar program. He has taught three classes for James Madison's Lifelong Learning program on the Swing Era, the history of the blues and the roots music that culminated in Rock and Roll.
