Classics can become cliches. And cliches, like whiskey, nostalgia, and orthodoxy, will deaden the mind.
We can't learn from what we know. It doesn't work that way. But if what we know morphs and changes, and whittles itself down to truthful essence, then we can find delight and inspiration. That's what's going on here, in Rodney Crowell's most unusual of retrospectives. These are songs he wants to sing and play, performed as he wants to sing and play them.
$25-$30. Tickets can be purchased here.
