On Stage This Week: Roger McGuinn Of The Byrds
As the founder of The Byrds, Roger McGuinn is firmly established as an indisputable industry icon.
From his signature twelve-string Rickenbacker sound to his instantly recognizable vocals on hits like “Turn, Turn, Turn,” “Eight Miles High” and “Mr. Tambourine Man," McGuinn didn’t just make music; he made history.
That feeling continues today as Roger offers concerts that are 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.
Roger McGuinn now runs a website called Folk Den. It includes his recordings of folk songs, some dating back centuries.
McGuinn plays the Sangamon Auditorium Thursday night. Ticket information available here.
