I will be presenting the story of the Berkeley Folk Music Festival and the Northern California Counterculture at the upcoming conference Contested Legacies: The Counterculture After Fifty in San Francisco. There will also be panels on various aspects of the 1960s counterculture. I will be chairing the Music and Counterculture Working Group, which features an amazing lineup of scholars.
