Jackson Browne plans summer acoustic outing
Iconic singer/songwriter Jackson Browne will take off on a summertime acoustic tour, inviting special guest Sara Watkins to join the three-week trek.
Browne will begin the journey with a June 19 performance in Salt Lake City, UT, and continue through nine more major markets. The outing, which wraps up with a two-night performance July 5-6 in Atlantic City, NJ, will feature Browne on piano and guitar, performing songs from his 40-year discography.
Singer, songwriter and fiddle player Sara Watkins, formerly of Nickel Creek, will open on the trek.
"I'm really excited to have Sara joining me on this tour," Browne said in a press release. "We've played together a number of times in the last few years, sometimes on her show and sometimes mine, and it's always been a thrill for me. I'm floored by her amazing instrumental virtuosity and by her beautiful voice, and most of all, I love her songs."
Browne will donate $1 from every ticket sold to charity, according to a press release. Ticketing information is available at the musician's website.
Browne most recently released "Time the Conqueror," his 13th studio effort, in 2008. That album peaked at No. 20 on The Billboard 200 and at No. 2 on the magazine's Top Independent Albums chart.
