Roger McGuinn at Manship
Mr. Tambourine Man not only lived history, he made history with his fearless sense of experimentation. As the leader of the influential 60s group, The Byrds, he was on the leading edge, combining the rock beat of the Beatles with the folk sensibilities of Bob Dylan, to create the genre known as "folk-rock." Roger's solo career began in 1973 and has yielded 10 albums, a Grammy nomination, and extensive touring and performing for enthralled audiences ever since. Roger can provide an educational seminar which includes aspects of rock history, musical techniques, and computer techniques he uses in recording.
