Highway Kind: A celebration of Townes Van Zandt
Highway Kind: A celebration of Townes Van Zandt
Thursday August 17th @ 8:00PM Tickets $20.00/$10.00
The Lilypad at Inman Square, Cambridge, Massachusetts

Portland, Maine based musician Seth Warner and his band will present the songs and stories from the life of legendary Texas singer-songwriter, Townes Van Zandt.

While finding success as a performing singer-songwriter was elusive and fraught with challenges, many of which were his own making - his songs touched and influenced many and still do to this day. Emmylou Harris, The Cowboy Junkies, Guy Clark, Willie Nelson, Nanci Griffiths, Steve Earle are just a few of countless artists that have covered Van Zandt's songs and specifically pointed to him as an inspiration. While not being exactly auto-biographical, Van Zandt's better known songs often deal with darkness and feature lonely, troubled characters infused with themes of leaving, life on the road and love left behind. Having toured as a soloist nearly constantly during his career and preferring dive bars to concert halls, Townes was a gifted and able performer, mixing in talking blues, choice upbeat covers and practicing his jokes and one liners with the audiences all along the way.

Joining Seth Warner at The Lilypad will be Mike Derosier on electric guitar, Duane Edwards on upright bass and Marty Joyce drums & percussion.
