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 will trace the historical roots and evolution of the movement, and will be invited to perform the music in class throughout the course.
