Brewer and Shipley in Concert
WPKN presents Benefit Concert featuring Folk-Rock legends Brewer & Shipley
7:30 p.m., Thursday, March 11, 2010
Edmond Town Hall, Newtown, CT
Recognized as one of the most successful folk rock duos of the 70's, Brewer & Shipley have remained true to their original form throughout 3 decades. Although best known for their Top-10 signature song, "One Toke Over The Line," which permanently etched their names in rock history by becoming an anthem of the 70's counter culture, Michael Brewer and Tom Shipley were by no means a one trick pony. In all, the duo landed three singles on the Billboard charts and had the pleasure of working with such notables as Mike Bloomfield, Leon Russell, Jimmy Messina, and the late Jerry Garcia.
Opening act Andew Vladeck is an award-winning singer-songwriter and well-known performer on the alt-folk scene in NYC. The banjo player, guitarist has just released his latest effort, "The Wheel" on End Up Records, which includes "The Songs you Inspire," which won first place in the Int'l Songwriting Competition. Vladeck is also a founding member of The Honey Brothers.
