The Roots of Rock & Roll


Libraries rock! Milford Library welcomes Brian Gillie on July 25 at 6:30pm. Fast-paced, interactive and hip, Brian Gillie’s musical performance “The Roots of Rock ‘n’ Roll” is unlike any history lesson you will ever see or hear. Gillie sings and dances his way through this one-hour retro-groove. History, humor, costumes, props, original sound bites, stand-up piano-playing, radio commercials, impersonations and attitude serve to reveal the sound of rock ‘n’ roll through its first fifteen years. Meet the personalities and hear the songs that shaped the music of doo-wop, Motown, girl groups, surfin’, soul, novelty tunes and much more: Little Richard to Coasters, Chuck Berry to Beatles, Elvis to the Four Seasons.

Gillie was formerly a full-time performance/educator with Arts for Learning CT and the CT Commission on Arts and Tourism.

This program is free and open to the public.

Parking is limited; please consider parking at Lisman Landing and walking over Hotchkiss Bridge.
