Jesse Winchester plays Fripp

Don’t miss an incomparable musical experience at 5 p.m. on Sunday, March 25, when the famed Jesse Winchester takes the stage at Fripp Island Community Centre. If you’ve enjoyed country, rock or folk music over the past four decades you’ve undoubtedly heard this Louisiana native’s top-ranked singles and maybe own one or two of his albums.  Jesse’s songs have been recorded by artists as diverse as Joan Baez, Jimmy Buffet, Elvis Costello and Emmylou Harris.  But they have never sounded better than in Jesse’s own graceful, soulful vocals.  In recognition of his incredible talent and contributions, ASCAP gave him its Lifetime Achievement award in 2007.  The intimate Fripp venue is perfect for Winchester’s performance style. With the artist almost close enough to touch, it’s hard to beat Jesse Winchester perched on his stool, guitar in hand and an audience clinging to his every word and note. Jesse thrives in this club-like atmosphere, guaranteeing an incredible show. Tickets at the door $20; students $10. Your admission includes a sumptuous post-performance reception by Harold’s Catering, at which you can meet Jesse Winchester. Free Fripp gate pass for all concertgoers.  More info: (843) 838-6655 or online at www.islc.net/friendsofmusic.
