Legendary raconteur


Legendary singer/songwriter Jackson Browne performs at Sangamon Auditorium, UIS with guest Sara Watkins. A 2004 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and 2007 Songwriters Hall of Fame inductee, Browne kicked off a career in the ’60s in New York City though most of his life and work was in California. Hits such as “These Days,” “The Pretender,” “Running On Empty,” “Doctor My Eyes,” “Take It Easy” and “Somebody’s Baby” remain some of America’s most precious folk and rock combinations of word, music and sentiment. The artist’s unique and sincere voice allures and holds. The storyteller and the stories have stood the test of time. Plus, Browne gets points for his passion and fearlessness to stand for what he believes in. He co-founded Musicians United for Safe Energy (MUSE), and received the John Steinbeck Award in 2002.
