DON HENRY, JON VEZNER & SALLY BARRIS in concert
Unitarian Church - North
Mequon, WI
Share this event:




Grammy Award winner Don Henry's songs have been recorded by legends like: Ray Charles, Patti Page and Conway Twitty
By country crooners like: Gene Watson, John Conlee and B.J. Thomas AND By young hit makers of today like:
Blake Shelton, Lonestar and Miranda Lambert .
.....and the list goes on.
And he's shared the stage with performers as diverse as
Joey Ramone to Keith Urban.

The wit and wisdom of Don's songs are widely renowned whether it's campfire favorites, the hilarious "B.F.D." and biker lullaby "Harley", to the wonderfully poignant tribute to Martin Luther King "Beautiful Fool", and of course his Grammy Award winning country classic "Where've You Been".

Grammy award-winning songwriter, Nashville based, Jon Vezner is a tunesmith of rare sensitivity and dry wit. His catalogue of recorded songs, topped by the poignant "Where've You Been," reflects his straight-to-the heart sensibility and emotional awareness. Vezner weaves the particulars of his own feelings with the lives of people he has known into universal themes that deeply touch listeners' emotions.

Vezner was honored with a Grammy for "Best Country Song" and the Nashville Songwriters Association "Song of the Year" in 1990, for "Where've You Been", the true story of Vezner's grandparents, co-written with Don Henry, and recorded by Kathy Mattea. "Where've You Been" was also honored as "Song of the Year" by the Country Music Association (CMA) and the Academy of Country Music (ACM).

Sally Barris is an A-list Nashville songwriter who has had songs covered by such top-level artists as Kathy Mattea, Martina McBride, and Lee Ann Womack. Her song "Let The Wind Chase You", recorded by Trisha Yearwood and Keith Urban, received a Grammy nomination for vocal collaboration in 2009.

While her writing credits mightily impress, fans and peers are most captivated by her bright spirit and expressive mountain soprano.  Dirty Linen says "Barris knows how to write lyrics that are as forthright as a stream of clear water and how to support them with melodies that share that quality".

When Sally is not touring solo, she is known as "Sister Waymore" in the power trio; The Waymores with Tom Kimmel and Don Henry.
