Oates will also discuss his 2014 induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, and how his sound was shaped by the early days of rock and roll, traditional American folk and blues and the soul sounds of the Philadelphia streets. Dr. Jason Hanley, Vice President of Education and Visitor Engagement for the Rock Hall, will lead the discussion.

After the interview, Oates will perform a short acoustic set, playing some of his favorite tunes for fans in the intimate theater. Concluding the day, fans will get a chance to meet Oates during a book signing of his memoir, Change of Seasons, at 3 p.m. in the FYE store inside the Rock Hall.
