Marc Cohn and Friends Return to The Newton Theatre
NEWTON — Marc Cohn and Friends will make a return performance at the Newton Theatre on Saturday, Aug. 2 at 8 p.m.
After winning a Grammy for his soulful ballad "Walking in Memphis," Marc Cohn solidified his place as one of this generation’s most compelling singer/songwriters.
Cohn followed up his platinum-selling debut with two more releases in the 1990s, at which point TIME magazine called him "one of the honest, emotional voices we need in this decade" and Bonnie Raitt declared, "Marc is one of the most soulful, talented artists I know. I love his songs, he's an incredible singer, and I marvel at his ability to mesmerize every audience he plays for."
Raitt, James Taylor, David Crosby, Graham Nash and Patty Griffin all made guest appearances on Cohn's early records for Atlantic, as his reputation as an artist and performer continued to grow. In 1998, Cohn took a decade-long sabbatical from recording, ending in 2007 with "Join The Parade."
Inspired by the horrific events following Hurricane Katrina and his own near fatal shooting just weeks before, Parade is his most moving and critically acclaimed record to date. About his latest album "Listening Booth: 1970," Rolling Stone said, "Cohn has one of rock's most soulful croons - a rich immediately recognizable tenor that makes these songs his own."
Tickets for Marc Cohn are $49 for premium seating, $44 for orchestra and $39 for balcony. Purchase tickets by visiting www.thenewtontheatre.com or contact the box office at 973-383-3700.
