MacArthur Park, Wichita Lineman, Up Up and Away, Highway Man, Do What You Gotta Do… the list is almost endless. Songwriter Jimmy Webb has left a permanent mark on the post-1960s American songbook – Webb’s songs have been performed by a wide range of artists from Frank Sinatra and Glen Campbell to Donna Summer and Nick Cave.
Webb’s voice can be heard in the rich traditions of country and Americana as well as in the works of soul giants like The Supremes, Diana Ross and Nina Simone. Many beloved American Christmas classics are also written by Webb. Calling him “America’s Songwriter” does not feel like exaggeration.
Huvila offers a unique opportunity to listen to Webb perform an intimate solo piano concert. The charismatic legend drills to the core of his classic songs and reveals new aspects of them.
The concert is opened by another man behind countless classic songs, Dave Lindholm. Lindholm performs his most famous songs alone with just his guitar and the familiar voice that rings with decades of experience.
Dave Lindholm starts at 7 pm. Jimmy Webb starts at 8.30 pm.
Doors: 5.30 pm.
