Wednesday, July 20, 2016 | 7:00 pm
“This rootsy North Carolinian may be the most buzzed-about new songwriter in folkdom,” wrote The Boston Globe about Carrboro’s Jonathan Byrd. “He displays John Prine’s gift for stark little songs that tell big, complex stories, Guy Clark’s lean melodicism, Lyle Lovett’s wry mischief, and Bill Morrissey’s knack for the revealing image.” No Depression declared that, “If there was one iota of justice in this world, Jonathan Byrd would be a platinum-selling, internationally acknowledged household name.” Backed by his top-notch band the Pickup Cowboys, Byrd calls on the country, folk, and ballad traditions to craft songs packed with humor and raw emotion.
