One of folk music’s busiest traveling troubadours, Todd Snider, will bring an evening of song-singing and storytelling to the F.M. Kirby Center on Tuesday, June 11 at 7:30 p.m. as part of the venue’s “Live from the Chandelier Lobby” concert series.
Snider, a witty songwriter who is just as entertaining in-between songs as he is while singing them, has released 17 albums since 1994, including two live records, a tribute album to his friend and mentor Jerry Jeff Walker and a slew of others that showcase his unique humor and skilled songwriting abilities.
The native of Portland, Oregon became an author in 2014 when he finally put his many stories into a book that is aptly titled, I Never Met A Story I Didn’t Like. Similar to any Todd Snider concert, the book takes readers on an entertaining journey through the songwriter’s experiences both on and off the road.
When he’s not traveling the country with his guitar and stories, Snider is fronting Hard Working Americans, a widely-popular jam band that also includes drummer Duane Trucks and bassist Dave Schools from Widespread Panic. Formed in 2014, Hard Working Americans have released two studio albums, in addition to two live albums.
Todd Snider will be supported by opening act, Shawn Z. Tickets are $30 in advance and $35 on the day of the show. You may purchase tickets now at the Kirby Center box office, online at www.kirbycenter.org and charge by phone at (570) 826-1100.
At B’nai B’rith Senior Apartments in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, we believe it’s important to integrate yourself into the community, which is why we suggest attending this event. Meeting new people, having unfamiliar experiences, and joining neighborhood activities is the key to an exceptional lifestyle.
