Wednesday, Oct. 5 at 7 p.m.—RUTLAND—Beatles music scholar Aaron Krerowicz will explore the history and reach of the legendary band in a talk at Rutland Free Library on Wednesday, Oct. 5, 7 p.m. His talk, “The Beatles: Band of the Sixties,” is part of the Vermont Humanities Council’s First Wednesdays lecture series and is free and open to the public.
In his multimedia presentation, Krerowicz will explore the band’s music beginning with the band’s seminal visits to Hamburg, and continue through Beatlemania to “Abbey Road.” The program will include audio clips of music and excerpts from interviews with band members.
Despite being born 15 years after the band broke up, Krerowicz is America’s only full-time professional Beatles music scholar. In 2011, he won a research grant through the University of Hartford in Connecticut and since has presented his findings more than 250 times throughout the U.S. and England. His appearance as part of First Wednesdays will be his 114th speaking engagement this year. He has authored four books on the Beatles. For more on Krerowicz, visit AaronKrerowicz.com.
