The songs that he wrote and performed have changed and insured millions to keep on keepin’ on, hold firm to principle, and not be deterred in the face of adversity.

Roger McGuinn (Mr. Tambourine Man, Turn Turn Turn) not only lived history, he made history with his fearless sense of experimentation. As the leader of the influential 60s group, The Byrds, he was on the leading edge, combining the rock beat of the Beatles with the folk sensibilities of Bob Dylan, to create the genre known as “folk-rock.” Roger’s solo career began in 1973 and has yielded 10 albums, a Grammy nomination, and extensive touring and performing for enthralled audiences ever since. In addition to touring, Roger has been busier than ever spearheading his acclaimed Folk Den Project, playing select dates with country superstar Marty Stuart and The Fabulous Superlatives and opened The Montreal Folk Festival.
Tickets: $92 / $77 / $57

Celebrating decades of music and his recent album Haven’t Got the Blues (Yet), Loudon Wainwright is, in the words of The New Yorker, “as good as he’s ever been. Almost 40 years into his recording career, he has not only retained his sharpness of wit but also has learned to cut with greater skill.” From an enfant terrible who was once compared to Bob Dylan, the folksinger-songwriter’s music “varies from good-timey folk to spare folk-blues. If his voice has thinned a bit, he still conveys the jovial intimacy of a born storyteller whose public self-mockery exorcises demons,” hails Stephen Holden in The New York Times.
Tickets: $57 / $47
