ANN ARBOR, Michigan - The Ark presents An Evening with Roger McGuinn , Saturday, May 16 at the Michigan Theater in Ann Arbor. Show time is 8:00 pm.
A founding member of the pioneering 1960's folk-rock band, The Byrds , Roger McGuinn was inducted in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1991, along with fellow band members David Crosby and Chris Hillman.
His distinguished vocals and rich, melodic guitar style turned songs like "Turn Turn Turn," "Eight Miles High" and "Mr. Tambourine Man" into Top Ten hits and cemented his place in rock and roll history.
The Byrds combined the melodic, upbeat pop of the Beatles with the message-oriented lyrics of Bob Dylan to create a new amalgam that would become known as folk-rock. They, in turn, served as a huge influence on the Eagles, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, and later R.E.M.
