Thread Name: info pls: 60s music & spirituality
Subject: RE: info pls: 60s music & spirituality
I'm itching to leap into this discussion but hesitant because of all the anger and hostility. Having lived through the 60s I hear some valid points from both sides of the fray, especially as regards the idealism and nostalgia, but also the destruction and hypocrisy.
Anyway, music has always accompanied (perhaps inspired) some spiritual dimension for me, did then, continues to do so now. My music then tended toward solid lyrics, good musicianship, harmony. Groups like CSN, The Byrds, Beatles, Buffalo Springfield. And as it turns out, my music today tends toward solid lyrics, good musicianship, harmony. Groups like Nashville Bluegrass Band, King Wilkie, Seldom Scene, Ralph Stanley. Music is often a part of my experience of spirituality and continually demonstrates to me the beauty of the universe. This greatly helps during ugly times like now.
