Marvin Gaye, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles, Sex Pistols, Beyonce, Nirvana, David Bowie, Lady Gaga, Tupac, Justin Bieber, Madonna… is a certain song playing in your head? Do these artists bring up nostalgic memories for you? How did they change the world as you know it? If you enjoy talking about music and popular music, then come and join our study group, “Popular Music Through The Decades.” We’ll get to discuss popular musicians from the 50’s onwards: everything from the fun songs they had, to the style they promoted, to the political issues they brought up, and how they changed society. This study group will look at popular musicians through the decades and revisit them with a nostalgic, fun, but critical eye.
