This lecture and multi-media presentation series will investigate the cover songs performed by the early Beatles, show how that music influenced their own work, and study their own songwriting from Quarrymen days through their first two EMI singles. Precursors to be examined will include Chuck Berry, The Coasters, Lonnie Donegan, The Everly Brothers, George Formby, Buddy Holly, Carole King, Little Richard, Carl Perkins, Elvis Presley, The Shadows, Phil Spector, Larry Williams. Over six meetings on successive Mondays from 31 October through 5 December (5:30-6:15 PM, EST, each evening), expect lively discussion as Walter Everett draws on a lifetime of scholarship and Jack Petruzzelli and Cameron Greider share their perspective as recording and touring musicians.
You may cancel a booking no later than five days before the first meeting for a refund of 50% ; cancellations later than that will be charged at the full rate.
