A Journey Through the Roots of American Popular Music

A Journey Through the Roots of American Popular Music

Aug 23, 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm


Join us for this unique performance experience combining music history, storytelling, and original songs inspired by his research. Waterman transforms fascinating tales from history into a performance that feels personal, contemporary, and politically relevant. A must see for anyone interested in American history or American music!

Singer and songwriter Jon Waterman engages audiences with a progressive approach to music that blends acoustic rock, blues, Americana, and even world music, with the storytelling sensibility of folk music. His songs and performances range from sentiments about love and need, to statements about social justice and the human experience, while chronicling historical events, fanciful legends, and the passages of everyday life. Jon is a lifetime musician and performs regularly at venues, outdoor markets, special events, and private shows.
