Roger McGuinn of The Byrds at Folk Fest
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.
