Lauren Fox: Canyon Folkies Over the Hills & Under the Covers

Mar 21

Lauren Fox: Canyon Folkies Over the Hills & Under the Covers 

Pollak Theatre - 8 PM

Returning to the Pollak stage after wowing audiences last season with her recreation of the love story between Leonard Cohen and Joni Mitchell that resulted in some of the biggest hits of their careers, Lauren Fox's new show is wistful journey through a time and place where today's musical icons became legends. From the mid-sixties to the early-seventies, something magical took place in Southern California...and it all happened in a bucolic stretch of hills, just above the Sunset Strip, called Laurel Canyon. Jackson Browne, Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, The Byrds, The Mamas & The Papas, The Eagles, and Crosby, Stills & Nash, to name just a few, all lived, loved, created, and collaborated there. Lauren Fox tells the story of this epic time in American music history, and sings the songs that it inspired.
