It’s time to get back in the groove. Rock author and historian Richie Unterberger is there to inspire you, as he presents and discusses rare clips of some of the best outdoor music fests. Clips from the 1967 Monterey Pop Festival, 1960 Newport Jazz Festival, 1965 Newport Folk Festival and 1970 Isle of Wight Festival will be featured. You’ll see how Janis Joplin, Bob Dylan, Ray Charles, and Leonard Cohen moved crowds and turned music festivals into cultural phenomena.
Richie Unterberger is the author of numerous rock history books, including volumes on the Beatles, the Who, the Velvet Underground, Bob Marley, and 1960s folk-rock, which played a large part in the 1969 Woodstock Festival. He teaches courses on rock history at several Bay Area colleges, including the University of San Francisco and San Francisco State. His next book, to be published by Taschen in 2021, is San Francisco: Portrait of a City.
