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

The concert will feature an eclectic mix of Berkshire Country musicians

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.
