Studium West at Peninsula College Forks is proud to present “Origins of Rock ’N Roll: The 50’s” by Sally Milici on Friday, November 8, 2019 at 7:00 pm. This combination lecture and performance will feature an exploration of the roots of Rock, from Gospel to Country to Rhythm and Blues. Milici will discuss some of the leading artists as rock evolved in the 50’s, including Chuck Berry, Bill Haley and the Comets, Carl Perkins, Fats Domino, Buddy Holly, Hank Williams, Ritchie Valens, Everly Brothers, and Elvis.
The program will weave biographical and historical details with live music samples performed by Milici and the talented musicians of Boothill Express: retired Deputy Sheriff Dave Lenahan on bass; Tim Hulbert on drums; and Ken Lambert, with vocals and lead guitar.

Milici is a well-known performer in the community, playing guitar and singing in the West End bands, Therapy Session and Boothill Express.
