Music on the Mezzanine promises to be a 'hit'

A history of rock 'n' roll with Sean McCollough

In a quartet of Thursday evenings beginning October 11, one of Knoxville’s most beloved musicians, Sean McCollough, brings his extensive knowledge of music history to the 2nd floor mezzanine of Lawson McGhee Library for an unconventional, performance-laced romp through the history of rock ‘n roll. In the four-part series, McCollough will explore the roots of rock through the 1970s with lectures, discussions, stories, and live performances.
