Chris Hillman & Herb Pedersen with John Jorgenson

Chris Hillman and two former members of the Desert Rose Band will appear in an intimate acoustic concert  at the Wildey Theatre.

Joining Chris Hillman in this acoustic appearance are Herb Pedersen on guitar and John Jorsengon on guitar and mandolin.

CHRIS HILLMAN was one of the original members of The Byrds, which also included Roger McGuinn, Gene Clark, David Crosby, Michael Clarke. The Byrds and were inducted in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1991. After his departure from the Byrds, Hillman, along with collaborator Gram Parsons, was the key figure in the development of country-rock. Hillman virtually definied the genre through his seminal work with the Byrds and later bands, The Flying Burrito Brothers and Manassas with Steven Stills. In addition to his work as a musician, Hillman is also a successful songwriter and has written songs performed by musicians as diverse as Emmylou Harris, Patti Smith, Tom Petty and Dwight Yoakam.

Hillman formed the Desert Rose Band which became one of country music’s most successful acts throughout the 1980s and 1990s, earning numerous Top 10 and Number 1 hits. The band’s success lead to three Country Music Association Awards, and two Grammys. Although the Desert Rose Band disbanded in the early 1990s, they performed a reunion concert in 2008 and have since played a few shows together in select venues.

HERB PEDERSEN began his career in Berkeley, California in the early 1960′s playing 5 string banjo and acoustic guitar with people like Jerry Garcia, David Grisman and David Nelson. His recording discography is diverse and reflects the singer/songwriter era, of the 1970s and 1980s. Pedersen is highly respected among musicians and music aficionados, as demonstrated by his work with artists as varied as Earl Scruggs, Old and in the Way, Peter Rowan, Gram Parsons, Emmylou Harris, Stephen Stills, Linda Ronstadt, Kris Kristofferson, John Prine, Jackson Browne and John Denver.

JOHN JORGENSON is known as a pioneer of the American gypsy jazz movement. Jorgenson first came to national prominence with The Desert Rose Band, when he was honored as the ACM’s “Guitarist of the Year” award three consecutive times. Following the Desert Rose Band, John formed another award-winning group, the virtuosic guitar trio The Hellecasters. Originally conceived as a “one off” gig for fun, the group went on to produce three acclaimed CDs and a live video, winning both “Album of the Year” and “Country Album of the Year” from the readers of Guitar Player Magazine for the stunning debut effort “Return of the Hellecasters”. The Washington Post recently wrote: “If there were a Summer Olympics for guitarists, Jorgenson would be a sure-fire gold medalist.”

This is sure to be a magic evening of musical treats for all.

ANNA NALICK
8:00 pm

Thursday - October 19, 2017

8:00 pm

ANNA NALICK

Anna Nalick is a platinum selling songwriter, singer, and musician from California. She grew up in small towns outside of Los Angeles, and began writing when she was in grade school. She wrote her first album, “Wreck of the Day”, while she was still in high school. Nalick has always written all of her music by herself entirely, and was surprised by the sudden attention from record labels after a few live performances at Hollywood’s Hotel Cafe. Nalick’s first album, “Wreck of the Day”, featuring hit single, “Breathe (2AM)” was officially released under ColumbiaRecords/SonyMusic in 2005. The success of the first album sent Nalick on her first international tour. With “Breathe(2AM)” topping charts in several countries as well as twice in the US, the tour stretched for the better part of four years, and introduced Nalick as a musical guest on the daytime and late night talk show circuit. Nalick’s music is still regularly featured in movies and television. In 2009 Nalick released “The Shine EP” featuring her third hit single, “Shine”, under ColumbiaRecords/SonyMusic. After a short US tour, Nalick made the decision to part ways with Sony in order to attend college and travel. Nalick states, “I knew I had to give myself room to develop creatively in the most honest way possible. I don’t want to be thinking about numbers or image or schtick while I’m working. When I write I want to laugh at it, grieve with it, be sarcastic, be abstract and obtuse, unabashedly romantic, or brutally honest in my observations, with no censorship or angle. That’s the only way it works for what I’m trying to accomplish because it digs deep. But it takes a minute to learn how to apply executive CEO brain while still protecting artist brain. It comes with age I think.” Before going back to school for creative writing, Nalick released her first independent album entitled, “Broken Doll and Odds and Ends”. Mostly acoustic with a collection of unique instrumentation, Nalick describes it as a collection of songs that felt too close to leave behind when she left the label. After school and a run as the lead in a 2013 stage-play about a woman with mental illness, Nalick returned to life on tour. In 2015 she began producing a new album, entitled “At Now”. Nalick describes the album stating, “It will span genres and eras with a fusion of acoustic and electric, digital and analog, and with the creative genius of some of my favorite musicians who also happen to be some of my best friends…. Thematically it is as tongue in cheek as it is visceral or intellectual or romantic. Its my story and it’s the world as I see it, but it’s poetry and metaphors so it’ll speak to whatever people want it to mean. I’m a studier, a lover, and a human. It’s human. I hope that makes it timeless in some way.”

$20 -Reserved Seating  (plus small service fee)

$70 VIP Meet & Greet available: Includes show ticket, pre-show meeting with Anna, autographed copy of "Breathe 2 AM" lyrics, photo opportunity and autographs.

Opening the show will be Kathryn Dean
