Roger McGuinn of The Byrds at Folk Fest

001_ROGER McGUINN jpg.jpg

Music critics say The Byrds changed the language of rock n' roll in the 1960s. With their blend of rock beats from The Beatles and that 12-string jangly electric guitar played by lead singer Roger McGuinn, their sound became known as 'folk-rock.'

Roger McGuinn is coming to Montreal for the Folk Festival on the Canal this Wedesday night.

At 71, the Rock and Roll Hall-of-Famer is constantly touring and he's got an on-going folk music project, the Folk Den.

Roger McGuinn spoke with Sonali Karnick on the phone from his home in Florida.
