Good Morning, Musicologists! We’ve got a fine Monday all lined up for you today to get you back into the work week with an ever-so-gentle nudge.
Here’s today’s musical lineup:
11:00 a.m. Jeff Lynne’s ELO Live at Wembley Stadium, London, UK, June 24, 2017
Jeff Lynne, musician extraordinaire, a Wilbury Brother, and producer of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, took the stage at Wembley in 2017 with his main band, Electric Light Orchestra, one of the finest bands to come out of the seventies. We have it live here for you later this morning.
3:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of The Lovin’ Spoonful
Formed in New York City by singer-songwriter John Sebastian and guitarist Zal Yanovsky, the Spoonful was one of the best bands of the Laurel Canyon scene. They were known for a string of masterful hits from the mid-to-late sixties. They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2000 and the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 2006. We put them In the Spotlight today.
7:00 p.m. Singer-Songwriter Series: The Music of Joni Mitchell
Joni Mitchell gets her second airing as our featured artist in the Singer-Songwriter Series this evening. She will make another appearance later in the week as well.
