Springsteen and His Layered Lyrics

July 16 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Bruce Springsteen expects attentiveness of his listeners. How do we know this? Over the past 50 years, Springsteen has written songs and created music that have been experienced by countless fans. But many don’t know the extent to which his work has been influenced by the American folk tradition. Through experimental reinterpretation and the creation of new traditions, The Boss has worked within known folk traditions, but at the same time, created new sounds and messages. In this session, presented by Dr. Prudence Jones, a Professor at Montclair University, participants can learn about some of the works that have influenced one of Jersey’s most celebrated musical artists. This program is funded by the New Jersey Council for the Humanities.
