 Folksingers such as Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Phil Ochs, and Peter Paul and Mary had tremendous impact on the political  and social climate of the 1960s.  During this session we will analyze the music and message of these incredibly powerful performers.  During the early 1970s these “folksingers” were replaced with an equally talented group of “singer songwriters”, such as James Taylor, Cat Stevens, Carole King, and many more.  These performers were singing about very different topics than the folksingers of the 1960s, and we will analyze what this tells us about changes in American society taking place in this period.
