Musician Roger McGuinn, co-founder of The Byrds, will speak about his career and his efforts to preserve folk music in a free public lecture on March 1 in the Hanes Art Center auditorium at UNC.
The appearance will celebrate the twentieth anniversary of McGuinn’s folkden.com project and is part of the #CHAT16 Festival at UNC. Every month for two decades, McGuinn has recorded a song, printed the lyrics and chords, put a personal touch on it, and made the content freely available for download.
Audience members are welcome to bring their guitars and play along to Byrds songs with McGuinn after the discussion.
