Why See Sweetheart of the Rodeo?
Celebrate Sweetheart of the Rodeo 50 Years after Its Release
To celebrate the pioneering album of the country rock genre 'Sweetheart of the Rodeo,' the Byrds co-founders, Roger McGuinn and Chris Hillman present a 50th Anniversary performance. The album was widely acclaimed for its spearheading of a new music genre.
The Byrds formed in California in 1964, and enjoyed moderate success before the career defining release of their sixth studio album, which helped to form the genre of country rock; a move into alt-country and Americana. The album became a classic which held an influence over country rock music to come. 35 years after it was released, the album was ranked number 117 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 Greatest Albums.
The concert will see Roger McGuinn and Chris Hillman joined by Marty Stuart and The Fabulous Superlatives to perform the whole innovative album in full.
