Leon Russell

Bands such as Mumford & Sons and the Avett Brothers has signaled a renewed interested in all things Americana as they’ve won huge awards and gaining devoted followers for a signature mix of country, folk and rock. But the genre started with artists like Leon Russell rocking it out from behind the keys of a piano. Russell has collaborated with just about everyone in rock ’n’ roll, from Jerry Lee Lewis to Elton John on the duo’s critically acclaimed 2010 album The Union. The album’s single “If It Wasn’t For Bad” was nominated for a Grammy and widely considered to be some of the best work by the long time artists in year. However, songs like “Humming Bird” epitomize the Americana style for which this legendary artist is known. This show is sure to be a refreshing return to fan favorites and classic covers.
