About the Event

Our Virtual U series invites you to take a walk through musical history as we examine the influence of key artists, led by Age-friendly University educators Professor Stephen Armstrong and Dr. Gil Gigliotti.

In this session, “The British Invasion,” Professor Armstrong will discuss the musicians from Great Britain who became popular in the U.S. in the 1960s and 1970s. We’ll explore the influence of the Rolling Stones, the Who, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, the Beatles and others to understand how music mirrored the response to the times and how these artists changed American music and shaped our culture for generations.
