JASON WILBER Concert
July 22, 7 p.m.
Logan Street Sanctuary
$12 suggested donation
We are thrilled to welcome back the one and only, Jason Wilber! Jason Wilber is Prine’s guy. At least some folks think of him that way. Wilber stands on elevated stages—from Carnegie Hall to the London Palladium, in every American state and across Canada and Europe and the like—and sings and plays guitar for John Prine, one of the English speaking world’s most celebrated and revered songwriters. It’s kind of like playing for Walt Whitman. It’s the sort of gig that can define a musician, and most would be well-pleased with the definition: “A legend’s right hand man” has a ring to it, and the music Wilber makes with Prine in concert and on recordings is thrilling and sustaining and important.
