In an announcement that will make a lot of fans very happy, Bluesfest has added Jackson Browne to the 2018 festival.
Jackson Browne has written and performed some of the most literate and moving songs in popular music and has defined a genre of songwriting charged with honesty, emotion and personal politics.
In a career spanning over 45 years, he has released nineteen albums: 11 Top 40, 4 platinum, 3 multi-platinum, & 2 Gold. 1977’s ‘Running on Empty’is 7 times platinum.
Beyond his music, Browne is known for his advocacy on behalf of the environment, human rights, and arts education. He was inducted into the Songwriter's Hall of Fame in 2007, and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004 by Bruce Springsteen, who said to Browne of The Eagles "You wrote the songs they wished they had written".
Bluesfest is delighted to include this treasure of contemporary musical history in our line-up.
Jackson Browne is playing Bluesfest on Saturday 31st March, 2018.
