Jackson Browne Celebration to Take Place at The Colonial Theatr

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The Berkshire Musicians Tribute to Jackson Browne concert will take

place at The Colonial Theatre in Pittsfield, Massachusetts on Saturday

January 25, 2020 at 7:30 p.m.

The concert will feature an eclectic mix of Berkshire Country musicians

as well as non Berkshire special guests performing the songs of Jackson

Browne. Performers include Matt Cimini, Bobby Sweet, Ed Moran, Bernice

Lewis, Rob Sanzone, legendary Northampton troubadour Ray Mason, Jack

Waldheim, Diane Wieland, Bruce Mandel, Jeanne Laurin and more.

Browne, who has sold over eighteen million albums was born in Germany in

1948 where his father, an American serviceman was stationed. At age

three, Browne and his family moved to Los Angeles. In his teens, he

began singing folk songs in local venues such as The Troubadour Club and

The Ash Grove.

After graduating from high school, Browne did a short stint with The

Nitty Gritty Dirt Band before moving to Greenwich Village in New York

City. Before his eighteenth birthday he became a staff songwriter for

Elektra Records in New York. In 1971, he signed with Asylum Records and

released his first album, Jackson Browne, which gained considerable

airplay and included the songs Doctor My Eyes and Rock Me On The Water.

His performing and recording career took off form there, with critically

acclaimed albums For Everyman, Late For The Sky and The Pretender to

follow. His biggest commercial success was the 1977 release Running On

Empty, which unlike any album before it, was recorded live in hotel

rooms, on tour buses, backstage and in concert. The album releases

continued with great success as Hold Out, Lawyers In Love, Lives In The

Balance and many more followed. Browne was inducted into the Rock & Roll

Hall of Fame in 2004.

The concert is a celebration of Browne’s songbook and will feature over

two dozen tunes including Running On Empty, The Load Out / Stay, The

Pretender, Rock Me On The Water, Doctor My Eyes and many more.

Tickets for the Berkshire Musicians Tribute to Jackson Browne are on

sale at The Colonial Theatre Box Office at 111 South Street in
