Course Description

Van Morrison is a music icon. But if you only know Van's catchy, early songs like "Brown Eyed Girl," you have missed out on a treasure trove of fantastic music. We will journey through the Belfast Cowboy's forty albums and hundreds of songs, including his early albums Astral Weeks and Moondance, his R&B rockers such as "Caravan," his Celtic-inspired songs, and his more recent blues and jazz-flavored albums. We will also take note of important biographical details that inform his music and the artists who inspired him and were inspired by him. We will consider Van as an artist, his place in the pantheon of singer-songwriters, the themes he explores, and how we personally respond to his music. The focus will be on listening to and discovering Van's music and discussing how it moves us and what Van is trying to tell us.   Facilitated Discussion Listening to Music or Other Audio
