Songwriters At Play Presents a Tribute to Jackson Browne
Songwriters At Play brings together an all-star team of performers to pay tribute to folk-rock star, Jackson Browne. More than a dozen musicians will interpret the poetic ballads and pop anthems, ranging from "These Days" and "The Shadow Dream Song" to "Rock Me On the Water" and "Running on Empty".
Freebo was the longtime bassist for Bonnie Raitt, who recorded several Jackson Browne songs. He's also recorded with everyone from Ringo and Dr. John to CSN and Aaron Neville. Most recently, Freebo has made his mark as an award-winning singer-songwriter and solo touring performer. http://freebomusic.com/
Penny Nichols has known Jackson Browne since they were both teenagers, and she recorded a tribute album, "Colors of the Sun: Penny Nichols Sings the early songs of Jackson Browne". She shared stages with the likes of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Linda Ronstadt, Janis Joplin and all those Summer of Love rock bands. Penny was a member of Jimmy Buffett's band, the Coral Reefers. She appeared in the movie FM with the band, toured the U.S., and earned a Platinum Record for her singing on "Son of a Son of a Sailor". The long and winding road has led to her to settle on the Central Coast, where she is the director of Summer Songs, a music camp held at Cambria's Camp Ocean Pines. https://www.pennynichols.com
