Soundtrack of the 60s

Exhibit at The Berkeley Historical Society  October 8, 2017 - April 1, 2018 While Berkeley did not have the large ballrooms of San Francisco, it had a variety of small clubs and medium sized venues that saw many legendary performances during the decade of the 1960s. The Fall 2017 exhibit of the Berkeley Historical Society will focus on these venues and the unique contribution of Berkeley musicians to 1960s music. The exhibit draws upon the extensive archives of Country Joe McDonald, as well as little known photographs from the Historical Society and several private collections. From small folk singer gatherings in private homes to public stages, Berkeley provided a rich milieu of opportunity for cross genre inspiration and creativity. Country Joe and the Fish, the Joy of Cooking and Creedence Clearwater Revival all had their start in Berkeley. A timeline of major national and international events will provide context for local musical developments.

Clothing and other artifacts of the period will also be on....
