Adelaide Fringe 2023 event

Laurel Canyon is a suburb in the In the Hills of Los Angeles, In the 1960s it was rural, rugged and cheap country style living five minutes from Hollywood Boulevard. A free spirited counter culture grew there and it became a beacon attracting dreamers and artists. Jackson Browne said “Laurel Canyon was a place that gave you permission to ask who you were?  

 By the 1970s: the hills of Los Angeles were alive with a new sound – an amazing group of young singers and songwriters were at the dawn of their legendary careers. Fleetwood Mac, The Eagles, Linda Ronstadt, Crosby Stills & Nash, Neil Young, Carole King, James Taylor, Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne, America, The Byrds and many others made their home in the rural idyll of Laurel Canyon.
