Cohoes Music Hall to welcome
Grammy-winner Rodney Crowell in April
COHOES — Guthrie Bell Productions and The Cohoes Music Hall will present Grammy Award-winner Rodney Crowell on Friday, April 5, at 8 p.m.
Crowell, the singer and songwriter, was born in Houston in 1950. He has released twenty albums in four decades, with five consecutive number-one hits, and has also worked widely as a songwriter and a producer. His honors include two Grammys for his hit single “After All This Time” and an album “Old Yellow Moon,” an ASCAP lifetime achievement award, and membership in the Songwriters Hall of Fame.
Crowell has written the hits “Making Memories of Us” for Keith Urban, “Please Remember Me” for Tim McGraw and many others. He currently lives in Nashville. His memoir, “Chinaberry Sidewalks, was critically acclaimed.
Opening for Crowell is Joe Robinson. Robinson is considered to be uniquely gifted as a virtuoso guitarist and as a singer and songwriter. He walks a tightrope between the instrumental music that has put him in the spotlight and a unique fusion of vocally based rock, blues, jazz, and R&B that is entirely his own.
Tickets for reserved seating on the floor can be purchased at $62, reserved seating for the parquet at $52, and reserved seating for the balcony at $42.
