Instructor: Scott Bridges - The best protest songs are not dead artifacts, pinned down to a particular place and time, but are living conundrums. We'll spend four weeks exploring the contradiction and tension of sound and meaning within the structure of "song". The inevitable difficulty of contorting a serious message to meet the demands of entertainment is the grit that makes the pearl. The answer, my friend, is "blowin’ in the wind".
