When the Beatles landed in New York and appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1964, they seemed to have come out of nowhere; however, the young Brits of the late 1950’s and early 1960’s had been brewing their unique interpretation of American rockabilly and rhythm & blues for years.
In this class, Dr. David Deacon-Joyner will present a lively multi-media narrative of the roots of British rock, its dominance on the American scene, and its contribution to the evolution of rock, fashion, and popular culture that gained the respect and attention of music scholars and performers of jazz and classical music.
