Berks County has a rich music history and we want to preserve it!
The Berks County Rock & Roll Hall of Fame was originally conceived following Berks History Center’s second Magical History Tour concert, which was held in August 2014. After two successful years of reunion performances by local musicians and bands from the 1960s and 1970s, the BHC wanted to honor and memorialize Berks County’s rich musical history in a way that would celebrate and commemorate the musicians and groups who made it so special. And so the Berks County Rock & Roll Hall of Fame was born.
The Berks County Rock & Roll Hall of Fame (BCRRHOF) is a permanent exhibit and storytelling project at the Berks History Center (BHC) that commemorates Berks County’s legendary contemporary music scene and celebrates the musical talents and history that make Berks County’s cultural heritage so unique.
In Tune – A Digital Storytelling Project
The BCRRHOF exhibit is complemented by “In Tune,” a digital storytelling project and video series that explores the history and personal experiences of Berks County musicians with interviews of members of the Berks County Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. “In Tune” was conceived and is produced by BCRRHOF member, Robert Yost, who, in addition to being a talented Berks County musician, is an established professional graphic designer, photographer, and videographer.
