Friday, May 25, 7:30 p.m.—WOODSTOCK—Pentangle presents Jesse Colin Young Band at Woodstock Town Hall Theatre Friday, May 25 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $50 reserved, or $45 for Pentangle members.
For 50 years Jesse Colin Young has been singing songs about peace, relationships and the environment. From his folk days in Boston and his first record, “Soul Of a City Boy,” he has articulated and recorded the tumultuous times of the 60s, 70s, 80s, to the present, while reminding us that it is all about family, community and the precious natural world we live in. His musical style is now considered Americana, but in fact it’s his unique fusion of jazz, blues, folk and rock with an emphasis on his extraordinary voice that makes his signature sound.
The Youngblood’s version of “Get Together” has been heard by millions from the “Forrest Gump” soundtrack in 1994, as well as in films and television shows like “Cats and Dogs: Revenge of Kitty Galore,” “Fear and Loathing in Los Vegas,” The Simpsons’ “Oh Brother where bart Thou” and “Tree of Horror II,” and South Park’s “Smug Alert.”
Woodstock Town Hall Theatre is located at 31 the Green, Woodstock. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit pentanglearts.org.
