A Celebration of the songs of Randy Newman
with The Kennedys, Jack Licitra, and Miles To Dayton
in WUSB's Sunday Street Series
Sunday, April 14th, 5 P.M.
Ever since his 1968 debut album, Randy Newman has been a major figure in American popular music, with eleven studio albums to his credit, twenty-seven film scores, and countless songs.
Newman has been a professional songwriter since he was seventeen. Newman’s 75th birthday last November inspired the Sunday Street Series to offer this celebration of his songs. You can expect to hear many Newman classics like “Louisiana,” “I Think It’s Going To Rain Today,” “Mama Told Me Not To Come,” “Political Science,” “Baltimore,” and “You’ve Got A Friend In Me” although some lesser known Newman songs are likely to appear.
About the performers:
The Kennedys began their performing career with Nanci Griffith’s Blue Moon Orchestra and quickly became major artists in the folk-rock world with thirteen studio albums to their credit, including 2018’s “Safe Until Tomorrow.”
Jack Licitra is an acclaimed keyboard player and guitarist, with his group “Jack’s Waterfall,” and was a member of the seminal Waterstreet Blues Band. He has just released "Inside Song."
Miles To Dayton (m2d) blends elements of folk, rock, classical and funk with four-part harmony, clever songwriting, improvisational violin and cello, and an infectious rhythm section, all evidenced in their four studio albums.
