Tickets $20; $25 at the door, July 6, 2023 at 7:30pm
On Thursday, July 6, Rainshadow Concerts presents John Fullbright with Daniel Walker opening in Palindrome Hall at 7:30pm.
“‘If you can’t say it, you don’t have to,’ sings John Fullbright on “Bearden 1645,” the opening track to his new record The Liar. The song details the GRAMMY-nominated songwriter finding refuge in playing the piano, starting as a child and still today. For fans, it may feel like a bit of a rebuttal to “Happy,” the opener from 2014’s Songs, one of several in his repertoire that speak explicitly about mining one’s angst in order to make music. In that way, “Bearden 1645″ is also a firm nod to the fourth wall: Fullbright knows you’re thinking about his songwriting. He is, too… but not quite the way he was before.” – Becky Carman
