Van Morrison is a music icon. However, if you know only 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 39 albums and hundreds of songs. We will meander through his early albums, Astral Weeks and Moondance, his R&B-infused rockers such as Caravan and his Celtic-inspired musings and travel through his recent albums of blues and jazz standards. We will note his biographical details and the artists who inspired him and were inspired by him. We will explore Van as an artist, consider the themes he explores, and discuss how we personally respond to his music. The focus will be on listening to and discovering Van’s music, talking about how it affects and moves us and what Van is trying to tell us. Facilitated Discussion; Listening to Music or Other Audio.
