Roger McGuinn, aka Mr. Tambourine Man, not only lived history, he made history with his fearless sense of experimentation. As the leader of the influential 60s group The Byrds, he was on the leading edge, combining the rock beat of the Beatles with the folk sensibilities of Bob Dylan, to create the genre known as “folk-rock” His groundbreaking work on The Byrds Sweetheart Of The Rodeo album, is widely credited with ushering in the genre.
The Byrds disbanded in 1973, and was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1991. Inspired by folk singer Pete Seeger, McGuinn began his lifelong dream of a solo career. Now more than forty years later, the three time GRAMMY nominee tours the world delighting audiences with shows as mesmerizing and magical as ever. He delivers the gift of an evening with a master, that is as intimate as it is spellbinding. He guides his audience along a journey of story and song, populated by the “old friends” they expect to hear, as well as some new acquaintances from the folk music that Roger so passionately embraces.
