Dulais Rhys, Professional Musician

The Beatles, their songs and their musical revolution arrived in the Bay Area 50 years ago today for a concert at the Cow Palace. The Beatles’ final public performance was at Candlestick Park two years and 10 days later. Paul McCartney commemorates that show at the last-ever event scheduled at Candlestick Park just a few days before this lecture at the Club. Come hear Rhys, a Welsh musician, outline the Beatles' history, songs, influences, form, stylistic development and legacy with musical examples, pictures and audience interaction. Singing along will not be discouraged!
