Jesse Colin Young
Thursday, July 12 at 7:30pm
With songs like “Darkness, Darkness”, “Lightshine”, “Sunlight”, “Sugarbabe”, “Songbird” and The Youngblood's version of “Get Together”, Jesse Colin Young has influenced and shaped the character of American music for over 50 years. Discovered in 1961, Jesse Colin Young had a serious solo career, showcasing his vocals and guitar work, with 2 records, Soul of a City Boy (Capitol) and Youngblood (Mercury), before he formed his folk-rock band The Youngbloods in 1965.
Jesse will be touring as an acoustic duo with his daughter Jazzie Young in support of his new solo acoustic album, Highway Troubadour, filled with stripped-down versions of such hits as “Darkness, Darkness,” from the Youngbloods’ 1969 album Elephant Mountain, and the jazzy “Ridgetop,” from his 1973 breakthrough solo effort, Song for Juli. The new album, the follow-up to 2019’s comeback Dreamers, traces Young’s personal journey from the Lower East Side of Manhattan to the San Francisco Bay Area to his home on a Hawaiian coffee plantation to the Deep South.
