Grateful Dead: A Two-Part History of an American Phenomenon
The Grateful Dead played an innovative mix of American folk songs, original compositions, and free-form improvisations between 1965-1995. Yet more than fifty years after the band’s founding, its legacy is surprisingly alive. The band that grew up and out of the revolutions of the tumultuous 1960s found a way to mix everything from roots music to free jazz to rock into an "endless tour" that provided a cultural soundtrack for not only the 1960s, but also the paranoia of the Watergate years, the Reagan-soaked 1980s, and on to the jam-band present. Join two professors from Lake Forest College, Davis Schneiderman and Richard Pettengill, as they wax enthusiastically about the single most influential American rock group of all time, tracing the Grateful Dead phenomenon from the '60s to the present day. Part two of a two-part lecture. Registration is not required.
