Back to All Events

Bob Lind and James Lee Stanley

Together for one lyrical, passion-filled night: two veteran singer songwriters whose phenomenal creativity and guitar/vocal chops have only improved over the years.

Both carry the ‘60s acoustic-folk tradition in their DNA. But they haven’t stopped there. Their music has continued to evolve. They’re at the top of their game. You may think you know them from their critically acclaimed records and CDs. But if you’ve never seen them in person, you don’t know them at all.

Bob Lind is always unpredictable and disarming onstage – making you laugh one moment, bringing you to tears the next. Music critic Walter Savinski writes, “Come see why this engaging poet/philosopher/guitarist/singer/wise-ass has endured in the sometimes-cruel and always-fickle music business for [five decades]. But be prepared to feel emotions you might not have let yourself feel in awhile. His songs hit the heart like a wrecking ball.” (Bob Lind photo by Henry Diltz)

James Lee Stanley combines hilarious stories with riveting music. His wonderful compositions and his heartfelt interpretations of songs by other great writers make him a unique and amazing performer. Famed novelist Tom Robbins says of him, “A diamond has been smuggled into the wasteland…And here is where the wasteland ends.” Believe The Village Voice when they say that when you come to hear James Lee, “You’re in for a very entertaining evening.”
