Livingston Taylor

& Jonathan Edwards

+ From top-40 hits I Will Be in Love with You and I’ll Come Running, to I Can Dream of You and Boatman, the last two recorded by his brother James, the creative input of Livingston Taylor has continued unabated. His musical knowledge has inspired a varied repertoire, and he is equally at home with a range of musical genres—folk, pop, gospel, jazz—and from upbeat storytelling and touching ballads to full orchestra performances. Livingston has never stopped performing since those early coffeehouse days, shared the stage with major artists such as Joni Mitchell, Linda Ronstadt, Fleetwood Mac, Jimmy Buffett, and Jethro Tull, and he maintains a busy concert schedule, touring internationally.

+ Warm as summer sunshine, real as the truth, intimate as a long overdue visit between old friends … such is a Jonathan Edwards concert. Four decades into a stellar career of uncompromising musical integrity, the man simply delivers, night after night – songs of passion, songs of insight, songs of humor, all rendered in that pure and powerful tenor which, like fine wine, has only grown sweeter with age.

Tickets start at $55

VIP seats are $65

Broken Arrow: The Music of Neil Young

Broken Arrow performs the music of Neil Youngfeaturing both the rockin’ electric Crazy Horse tunes and the more acoustic, pedal steel driven country rock material. The band delivers these classic songs faithfully while taking them out on some jamming excursions and tastefully tweaking some of the arrangements.

These guys always have audiences on their feet singing along and demanding encores at every show with favorites that include Cinnamon Girl, Heart of Gold, Only Love Can Break Your Heart, and, of course, Southern Man.
