Boomer Music Talk with Richie Unterberger: French Rock: The Early Years
Mon July 11, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
As Bastille Day approaches, author and rock historian Richie Unterberger celebrates France’s overlooked contributions to a major form of popular music in “French Rock: The Early Years” on Monday, July 11 from 6pm-7:30pm. Although few French rock performers are well known to English-speaking audiences, there have been numerous French stars who developed their own style or mimicked overseas trends with a twist. This program honors the music of several such acts from the 1960s and 1970s, from Johnny Hallyday and Françoise Hardy to Brigitte Fontaine and Metal Urbain.
