VANCE GILBERT
Great Barrington, 8 p.m.
The Guthrie Center 2019 Troubadour Series presents Vance Gilbert. Those lucky enough to attend a Vance Gilbert concert will encounter a contemporary singer/songwriter who began as a jazz and cocktail lounge singer and found a deeper creativity when he took up performing as a craftsman of his own words and guitar melodies. His sophisticated tunes and harmonies attest to those jazz roots and to his storyteller’s craft—as well as to his almost unequaled rapport with his audience.  It is an added bonus that Vance is one of the funniest folkies we know!  Go to https://guthriecenter.org/troubadour-series/ for tickets and information.

TOM PAXTON AND THE DON JUANS
Great Barrington, 8 p.m.
The Guthrie Center 2019 Troubadour Series presents Tom Paxton and The Don Juans.  Winner of a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award for a career going back to the Greenwich Village folk revival of the early 1960s, when, as a pioneer singer-songwriter, he moved the genre beyond its traditions, Tom Paxton returns to the Guthrie Center, joined by songwriters Don Henry and Jon Vezner, the DonJuans. Paxton’s songs have been interpreted by the greats, from Bob Dylan, to Willie Nelson, to Placido Domingo, to Judy Collins. Says Collins, “Tom Paxton’s songs are so powerful and lyrical, written from the heart and conscience, and they reach their mark, our most inner being.” Don Henry and John Vezner are not just Grammy-winning songwriters themselves, but vocalists and multi-instrumentalists who will further deepen and enrich these two exceptional evenings.  Go to https://guthriecenter.org/troubadour-series/ for tickets and information.
