The Huntington Library, Art Museum, and Botanical Gardens recently welcomed back Muse/ique for its program titled “Laurel Canyon.”
In the early 1960s, the famed Laurel Canyon was a creative hub for break out musicians of the day.
As Artistic Director Rachael Worby narrated and shared insights to the musical history of the canyon, Muse/ique took the audience on a musical journey, which reflected on the history and the groundbreaking artists who were part of this creative movement.
With their own take on hits from The Mamas and The Papas to Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, to Linda Ronstadt and Joni Michell, Muse/ique revealed the hidden “oasis where singer-songwriters converged to reinvent how music was made and played.”
This first series of Muse/ique performances hosted by the Huntington will be followed by “Route 66 and Highway” June 22-23 and “Whittier Boulevard” July 20-21.
