Roger McGuinn

When: Fri., May 3, 8 p.m. 2013

If you've ever lost yourself to a comfortably jangling guitar or been swept up by an airy, easygoing hook, you owe some of the experience to Roger McGuinn. As lead singer and guitarist for The Byrds, he helped carve out a more graceful niche in psychedelic pop and folk—kinetic but never alarming, pillowy but always powerful. McGuinn released a series of solo albums after parting with the band, but after 1977's Thunderbird, he didn't issue another LP until 1991. Evidenced by his Folk Den website, on which he records and posts a different traditional folk song each month, his recent pursuits have hewed to acoustic delicacy, exploiting the calming qualities of his tender croon. —Jordan Lawrence
