Program Description

Event Details

Join the Library's own musicologist, archivist and musician Tony Traguardo as he looks at classic songs from the 50s through the 70s whose lyrics were based on true stories and real people. John Lennon and Carly Simon are among many musical artists who have created works that are autobiographical, while Bob Dylan, Deep Purple and Gordon Lightfoot are a few of the songwriters who were affected enough by true events to write about them. In this multimedia program, Mr. Traguardo will reveal the fascinating stories behind some of popular music’s greatest story songs.
