Performances of “My Back Pages” and “Turn! Turn! Turn!” by former Byrds leader Roger McGuinn are part of “John Sebastian Presents Folk Rewind,” which will premiere Nov. 27 on PBS and air throughout December as part of the network’s fund drive.

In addition to McGuinn and host John Sebastian, the former Lovin’ Spoonful frontman, the special will include performances by the Chad Mitchell Trio, Barry McGuire and Youngbloods singer Jesse Colin Young.

  1. Mr Roger McGuinn is An American Legend + the Burds Probably Americas Greatets ever Band ..who Thankfully Turned me on to Mr Bob Dylan Via Covering his Songs .

  2. Ah, yes, I agree with all the alcolades! Mr. McGuinn still porjects a powerful, emotion filled voice that captures and projects the true essence of his songs. I have only been fortunate enough to see him live in concert (1991, I beleive it was), and can tell you that if you ever get the chance to see him, do so. You will enjoy it immensely.
