Credits: 3

This course, taught by recording artist/producer Richard Barone, explores how 1960s Greenwich Village NYC became the epicenter of a revolutionary movement in the history of American music. A new wave of writers and performers, inspired by the folk revival of the late fifties, created introspective, socially-aware, deeply personal songs that wove traditional folk with the blues, jazz, R&B and rock that were flourishing in Village clubs. These young writers – Bob Dylan, Tim Hardin, Janis Ian, Fred Neil and Phil Ochs, to name just a few – created songs sprung from personal, contemporary experience, as well as from the headlines, that transformed popular music and still resonate today. Students are encouraged to attend “Music + Revolution: Greenwich Village in the 1960s, hosted by Richard Barone”, a free concert at SummerStage in Central Park NYC on August 12, 2018, as a prelude to this course.
