EVDOL 079 — The Birth of Rock ‘n’ Roll

Brad Balliett, Doug Balliett
Beginning with blues, dixie, skiffle, and swing, progressing through rhythm and blues and folk, and culminating in the advent of rock ‘n’ roll, this course charts the birth of     an American art form. Drawing together the disparate threads of music, social climate, and politics that created this new kind of music over the course of the 1950s, many artists are considered, with special emphasis on historic figures like Fats  Domino, Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly, the Everly Brothers, Bill Haley, and on into the artists of Motown.
