Folk music was slowly declining in popularity in the 1970s as popular music fans were drawn to Rock, a rising genre, and to the rock artists writing and performing their own material. They were an extraordinarily talented crew, worthy of the close attention this course will give them. Mr. Joyce offers us an exploration of the careers of the dynamic singers and songwriters of the decade where Rock became a major musical industry. The talents and careers he examines will include such artists as Carole King, Elton John, James Taylor, Joni Mitchell, Jim Croce, Billy Joel, Bruce Springsteen, and many others. They made the 70s a rich musical time. Come have a listen!
