Between 1965 and 1975, Laurel Canyon Boulevard, located in the Hollywood Hills of Los Angeles, was home to many of the musicians who redefined American popular music and inspired the “L.A. sound” of the early ‘70s – artists like The Mamas & The Papas; the Byrds; Crosby, Stills, and Nash; Neil Young; James Taylor; Joni Mitchell; Jackson Browne; Linda Ronstadt; the Eagles; and more. This show follows these legendary artists and shares stories on how this neighborhood of like-minded artists influenced the music that was created. Sponsored by The Pete and Pat Curran Family.
The Kent Arts Commission cares deeply about the health and safety of our patrons, artists, staff, and community. In keeping with the policies of our host venues (Kent School District), we will require Spotlight Series audiences to wear masks indoors. We will also maintain social distancing between seating groups. We recognize that situations change rapidly and will review and re-evaluate routinely based on School District policies, as well as state, county, and CDC guidance.
