In 1961, while The Beatles were performing for the first time in Liverpool, a teenager by the name of Bob Dylan was singing at a Folk Festival in a small, East Coast town across the pond. It was Branford, Connecticut. Such begins Renzoni’s odyssey exploring our state’s contributions to the genre— through sock hops, billboard charts, band interviews, and raw photographs (see Joe Sia’s Jimi Hendrix shot at Yale), this CT resident/rock enthusiast highlights musicians both in and out of the limelight. Because in the end it isn’t about the big crowds and bright lights, but the garage-jamming, down home, grassroots love for the music. ~Ellen
