A Night of Blues, Folk and Rock in Support of Green-Wood

June 23, 2017, 7:30pm10:30pm

lt

Join us on the night the Green-Wood Chapel becomes a House of Blues! We are enormously proud and excited to present an evening of folk, blues, and rock music with the powerhouse duo of singer-guitarists Larry Campbell and Teresa Williams. Three time Grammy Award-winning Larry Campbell – best known for his eight years with Bob Dylan – has played with Elvis Costello, Willie Nelson, and Levon Helm’s Midnight Rambles, to name just a few. And Teresa, who met Larry when she was playing at the Bottom Line in the ‘80s, has sung with giants like Mavis Staples and Emmylou Harris. That’s why this performance by “the first couple of Americana” (Mojo Magazine) at Green-Wood, a National Historic Landmark, is a perfect marriage.

Opening for Larry and Teresa will be the renowned guitarist Danny Kalb, one of Dylan’s earliest inspirations and founding member of the legendary Blues Project.

This special performance is a tribute to Green-Wood permanent resident singer-songwriter Greg Trooper (1956-2017).

If you’ve never experienced music in Green-Wood’s historic chapel, you are in for a huge treat. For one of the most memorable experiences of the year, join us for this very special evening. Ticket sales support the tours, programs, school programs, archives, horticulture projects, and conservation work at Green-Wood.
