New "My Music" PBS Pledge Special Celebrates the Greatest Singers and Songwriters of the Classic '50s & '60s Folk Era

Featuring Vintage Footage of Folk Legends plus New Live Performances by Roger McGuinn of The Byrds, Barry McGuire and more

PITTSBURGH, Nov. 22, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- TJL Productions announced today that PBS will broadcast JOHN SEBASTIAN PRESENTS FOLK REWIND during the December pledge period. Hosted by John Sebastian of The Lovin' Spoonful ("Do You Believe In Magic"), the latest installment of the popular "My Music" series features a treasure trove of historical footage not seen in over four decades, plus exciting new concert performances by legendary artists who continue to thrill audiences today.

Sebastian takes viewers through the extensive archival material, sharing the stories behind the music as he uncovers classic folk performances from the '50s and '60s. But the vintage footage is merely the prelude to the final act of this PBS pledge event - an exciting new concert featuring some of folk music's most enduring artists. All the original members of The Chad Mitchell Trio reunite to perform Bob Dylan's anthem "Blowin' In The Wind." Jesse Colin Young of The Youngbloods offers the generation-defining hit "Get Together." Barry McGuire belts out his 1965 chart-topper "Eve Of Destruction." And Roger McGuinn of The Byrds delivers an unforgettable encore of two of his biggest hits - "My Back Pages" and "Turn, Turn, Turn."

The "My Music" series is dedicated to the preservation of American music and is produced exclusively for PBS by TJL Productions.
