CHICAGO – Rock royalty is coming to town, both in the presence of Jakob Dylan (The Wallflowers) and in a new documentary where Dylan explores the roots of the California rock sound of the 1960s, entitled “Echo in the Canyon” (many of the rockers back then lived in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Laurel Canyon). Director Andrew Slater will join Dylan for the film perspective, and Dylan will perform after the screening, taking place on June 21st, 2019, at the historic Music Box Theatre.

So much ink and retrospective media space has been taken up with the British Invasion of America, starting with The Beatles in 1964. Well, finally there is a documentary that goes back to the good old USA during that era, to give that folk/rock “California Sound” its due. It begins with the first jingle-jangle of the 12 string electric guitar from Roger McGuinn and The Byrds in 1965 on “Mr. Tambourine Man,” and resonates as the “Echo in the Canyon.”

“Echo in the Canyon” continues its limited release in Chicago on June 21st at the Music Box Theatre, 3733 North Southport, Chicago. See local listings for other theaters and show times. Rocker Jakob Dylan and director Andrew Slater will appear at the 7pm screening on June 21st on behalf of the film. Featuring interviews with Tom Petty, Roger McGuinn, Brian Wilson, David Crosby, Michelle Phillips, Graham Nash, Stephen Stills and Ringo Starr. Rated “PG-13”
