CMP & ZAZA MUSIC PRESENT
An evening with ROGER MCGUINN
Legendary former Byrds frontman and founding member, Roger McGuinn returns for a string of UK dates this Autumn. The Bryds’ era defining songs like “Eight Miles High”, “Mr Tambourine Man”, “Turn, Turn, Turn” and “All I Really Wanna Do” became classics of the new folk rock sound.
McGuinn’s trademark Rickenbacker 12 string sound has influenced generations of musicians and this superb show will draw from his huge back catalogue, including his Grammy-nominated project, “Treasures From The Folk Den” and his critically acclaimed 4 CD Box Set, “The Folk Den Project.”
McGuinn pioneered folk-rock and, by extension, country-rock, influencing everyone from contemporaries like the Beatles to acolytes like Tom Petty and R.E.M. in the process.
“Music would be a very, very different place if it hadn’t been for Roger McGuinn” (Rolling Stone)
