On Friday, April 4th, 2008 at 8PM, the Inter-Media Art Center (also known as “IMAC”) in Huntington, Long Island will present a concert with singer/songwriter guitarist and founder of the BYRDS Roger McGuinn.
Roger McGuinn was already a veteran of the New York and Los Angeles music scene when he co-founded the group that would become the Byrds with Gene Clark and David Crosby in 1964. Just prior to forming the Byrds, McGuinn was performing solo at the Troubadour in Los Angeles, having earlier toured and performed folk music with the Limeliters, Chad Mitchell Trio and Bobby Darin as a guitarist and banjo player.
“Treasures From The Folk Den” released in 2001 includes traditional songs recorded by McGuinn and Pete Seeger, Joan Baez, Judy Collins, Odetta, Jean Ritchie, Josh White Jr., Tommy Makem, and Frank and Mary Hamilton. It was nominated for a Grammy as “Best Traditional Folk Album”. McGuinn’s latest release is a 4 CD 100 song box set of Rock, Electrified Blues and Folk titled “The Folk Den Project”
