The 2014-15 Clarion performance season will include a variety of top-notch artists, including popular country musicians Vince Gill and the Time Jumpers, Travis Tritt and Rosanne Cash.
Opening the season on September 6, Gill and the Time Jumpers will be a treat for music lovers. All seasoned touring and studio musicians, the Time Jumpers play an impressive array of country, swing, jazz and pop standards, and have performed with some of the industry’s top musicians. Among the stars sitting in with the band have been Bonnie Raitt, Reba McEntire, Robert Plant, the White Stripes and Carrie Underwood, just to name a few.
That’s only the beginning of this season’s list of Clarion performers, though.
When Tritt and Cash take the Clarion stage on October 25 and December 5, respectively, audiences will no doubt be looking forward to seeing these household names in concert.
Tritt has charted more than 40 songs on the Hot Country Songs charts, including five No. 1s, while Cash, daughter of music icon Johnny Cash, has garnered a Grammy, 12 Grammy nominations and 11 No. 1 singles during her 30-year career.
The Clarion will also welcome many other top artists, including Latin Grammy Jazz Grammy winner Pauito D’Rivera on April 25, Jake Hertzog on November 21 and the Canadian Brass on February 7, 2015.
Expanding beyond the musical realm, the Clarion will host one of the world’s top puppeteers, Jim Gamble’s Puppeteers, in “The Carnival of Animals,” on September 23, a hilarious comedy/magic show featuring Chipper Lowell, and a unique performance of The Intergalactic Nemesis, Book One: Target Earth on March 28, 2015.
One final show, with a performer to be announced, will be added at a later date to this season’s lineup for Dow’s Anniversary Event in January, 2015.
