The Influence of American Rock 'n' Roll on the Beatles

The Influence of American Rock 'n' Roll on the Beatles
Wednesday, March 2, 6:30-8 PM

 Free program. Registration required.

Before the Beatles ever wrote their own songs or performed on stage, they were inspired to do so by American rock 'n' roll records. This 90-minute multimedia program will illustrate the influence of Carl Perkins, Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry, Little Richard, and other American recording artists from the 1950's on the Beatles through side-by-side comparisons and musical analysis of Beatles covers and original recordings.

Aaron Krerowicz is a professional Beatles scholar with an A.D. from the University of Hartford, The Hartt School; a M.M. from Boston University, College of fine Arts; and B.M. from Butler University, Jordan College of Fine Arts.
