Jackson Browne – Interlochen Arts Festival – June 28, 2016
Since the 1960s, Jackson Browne has combined artistry and advocacy. One of the most literate songwriters in popular music, Browne uses music to convey message that are deeply personal and political in nature. Browne’s many accolades include inductions to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Songwriter’s Hall of Fame.
Accompanying Jackson on the road this summer are longtime band mates Val McCallum (guitar), Mauricio Lewak (Drums), Jeff Young (keyboards), Bob Glaub (bass), Alethea Mills (Vocals) and the acclaimed multi-instrumentalist Greg Leisz (guitar, lap steel, pedal steel).
“This is my ideal band, with some of my favorite players, whose combined gifts provide the musical foundation and emotional underpinnings of my new songs,” says Jackson. “The interplay between Val McCallum and Greg Leisz—the effortlessness of their chemistry is a gift really, that just dropped into my lap. I feel fortunate to have them out on the road for this tour.”
