One of the true pioneers of "Country Rock", Chris Hillman has carved out a permanent niche in the history of American music playing with The Byrds, The Flying Burrito Brothers and the Desert Rose Band.
A real coup to get these two pros to start our 28th season!
|Ontario singer-songwriter Ron Sexsmith started his music career at age 14. A Pete Seeger fan, Ron has reached the point today where his own fans include Paul McCartney, Elvis Costello and John Hiatt. High praise indeed for one of Canadas’ premier musicians! Ron will appear with a full band.|
