This 3 day course will be a “Readers Digest” review of the Vietnam war told through the popular music of the period. The 60s and 70s are a time of incredible civil disturbance and unrest. The country is being ripped apart, but yet somehow the artists and musicians of the time are inspired to write and perform music that gives identification and maybe a significance that can only happen through art and music. We will look at many prominent singers and groups, but will spend a little more time on Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young whose music so captured the impact of those years.

3 Sessions: Wednesdays at 4pm – 5:30pm, December 2, 9, and 16 – $15
