“Without Chris Hillman acting as the connective tissue between West Coast country music traditions and the rock ‘n’ roll generations, from Buck Owens to The Byrds, there would be no modern country music.” – Dwight Yoakam
Chris Hillman, who pioneered country rock with the Byrds and the Flying Burrito Brothers, joins Bob Dylan Center Director Steve Jenkins for an evening of conversation covering Hillman’s six decades as a groundbreaking artist.
In addition to his seminal work in the 60s, Hillman went on to lead the hitmaking Desert Rose Band, winner of three Academy of Country Music Awards. Hillman’s recent projects include his acclaimed autobiography “Time Between: My Life as a Byrd, Burrito Brother, and Beyond;” the deluxe tabletop book “THE BYRDS: 1964-1967,” which Hillman curated with original members Roger McGuinn and David Crosby; a weekly SiriusXM show “Chris Hillman’s Burrito Stand;” and a sold-out 2018 concert tour with McGuinn and Marty Stuart and the Fabulous Superlatives celebrating the influential Byrds album “Sweetheart of the Rodeo.” The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer’s most recent album, 2017’s “Bidin’ My Time,” was produced by Tom Petty.
This event is made possible through the generous support of Tim and Mary Whelan.
