LIVE FROM LAUREL CANYON - "Songs & Stories of American Folk Rock" is a journey through a very special time in American popular music. A time when an entire generation of youth felt abandoned by their own culture and were searching for a sound that helped define them; a sound that shared the protest & awareness of folk music and the attitude and look of rock music. Join us as we follow these legendary artists & share stories on how they ended up in the Canyon and how this California neighborhood of like-minded artists influenced the music that was created. Follow the twists and turns of the side roads off of Laurel Canyon Boulevard between 1965 and 1975 and you'd find some of the musicians who redefined American popular music and inspired the "LA sound" of the early 70s; artists like the Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, the Doors, Crosby, Stills, and Nash, Neil Young, James Taylor, Joni Mitchell, Carole King, Jackson Browne, Linda Ronstadt, America and the Eagles.
