The history of early American & British popular music

About this Event

Rock and roll is a genre of popular music that originated in the United States during the late 1940s and early 1950s.

The style is a combination of African-American blues, boogie woogie, jump blues, jazz & gospel, along with Western swing and Country music.

Although elements of rock and roll can be heard in blues recordings from the 1920s, and in country records of the 1930s, the genre didn’t acquire its name until the 1950s.

The initial response of the British music industry was, to attempt to produce exact copies of American records, but this changed in1958, when Britain produced its first "authentic" rock and roll song and star, as Cliff Richard and the Drifters reached number 2 in the charts with “Move it”.

Following this success, a flood of guitar based bands formed in Britain. This led to the music of many British groups, including The Beatles, have their music travel back across the Atlantic in a period which came to be known as The British Invasion.
