The Beatles, The Sixties & Popular Culture


Between 1962 and 1970 The Beatles released 22 singles, several EPs and 11 albums. The total number of songs in the Beatles canon is 211. The Beatles produced lots of different kinds of music – folk, rock, country, rockabilly, soul blues, doo-wop – and they invented new genres like psychedelic music and heavy metal. American and English culture of the 1960s is reflected more in the music of the Beatles than in that of any other group. Their rise coincided with a vital shift in the relationship between the two countries and a change in the significance, relevance, and artistic ambitions of popular music. Join Professor Yudkin in a celebration of their music and their impact on popular culture.

Professor Yudkin will participate in a LIVE Q&A immediately following the pre-recorded lecture. This event is FREE but you must REGISTER to participate.
