We love these guys! They combine gospel, rock, blues and soul into a high energy melange that gets you smiling and moving. They’ve recorded with Van Morrison, Peter Gabriel and others. Here’s a profile on the Alligator Records’ website:http://www.alligator.com/index.cfm?section=artists&artistid=69.

David Lindley

This amazing multi-instrumentalist was Jackson Browne’s featured accompanist for years. He’s also worked with Ry Cooder, as well as Dylan, Rod Stewart, Warren Zevon and Linda Ronstadt. This will be an awesome show! www.davidlindley.com

Graham Parker and the Latest Clowns

Bloodshot CD Release Show. Britisher Graham Parker came out of the English pub band scene in the 1970s, filled with a scruffy R & B attitude that earned him an international following. These days he’s residing in New York State but is still making music that moves. We’ve hosted him several times at the Narrows and he’s become one of our favorites and a solid draw. Don’t wait to get your tickets for this one!

Jonathan Edwards

Jonathan Edwards came to fame with his toe-tappin’ anti-war anthem ‘Sunshine,’ which still gets played on the radio, decades later. He’s one of the funnest artists to see in concert, which is why we’ve had him at the Narrows several times. www.jonathanedwards.net
