Thursdays, Jan 7 – Feb 11, 7pm – 9pm. A 6-Week Online Course with Pete Elman.
How Rhythm & Blues and Celtic mysticism combined to inspire an artist for the ages.
Van Morrison’s amazing career has spanned 56 years, and in that time, he has produced 40 albums containing hundreds of his unique and original songs. His eclectic career has seen him range from the early blues-influenced days of his Irish band, Them, to his acclaimed twin masterpieces, Astral Weeks and Moondance, into the 1970’s where he parlayed R&B-based rock into superstardom. For the past 40 years, Morrison has eloquently displayed the ability to move between genres blending jazzy rhythm & blues and the Celtic folk of his ancestors, with healthy doses of rock & roll and country. In this class we will break down that extraordinary volume of work into six periods, chronicling the artist’s evolving development as a man and a musician.
