Dan Bern with special guest Josh Harty

Thu September 19, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm

$15 – $18

The Madison Folk Music Society will be opening their Fall concert season with a Dan Bern CD Release Concert.

Dan’s songs range from topical to funny, often using iconic characters such as, Woody Guthrie, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen and Marilyn Monroe and many, many more.    Dan Bern is a throwback to the days of exemplary songs and extraordinary songwriters. He’s one of the very best, and we sure could use more of his kind these days. His voice, to me, is a mix between Tom Petty and Bob Dylan.  He has always been defiantly uncompromising in his writing style. He is a singer, songwriter, a painter and a writer and sometimes you get all of that tossed in to one song. He currently has over 2 dozen albums released, everything from a children’s record to a record of just baseball songs.

While Bern may be best-known for his masterpieces “Jerusalem,” “Marilyn,” and “Tiger Woods,” he has released 25 albums and EPs, and played thousands of shows across North America and Europe. He is a captivating live performer with a loyal, multi-generational following. Ani DiFranco, an early supporter of Bern’s, took him on tour with her and produced his second album, Fifty Eggs. Bern’s songs have appeared in numerous films and TV shows, and he has written original songs for the films Walk Hard — The Dewey Cox Story and Get Him to the Greek, as well as the 15-song soundtrack for Everett Ruess, Wilderness Song, a documentary produced by Jonathan Demme.

A visual artist, Bern’s paintings are on display at the Herbert Hoover Presidential Museum and the Bob Feller Museum. His gallery exhibitions are often accompanied with a live performance. Bern is the author of several books, including his latest, Encounters, a collection of poetry based on Bern’s chance meetings of such figures as Jimmy Carter, Bruce Springsteen, Hunter S. Thompson and Wilt Chamberlin. Bern hosts a podcast — 10,000 Crappy Songs — a radio drama of a songwriter-turned-detective. He also runs the 24/7 internet radio station, Radio Free Bernsteinn.

Opening the show will be Madison’s own Josh Harty who often covers a Dan Bern song in concerts.  Josh was a regular in Madison before starting his music career that has taken him all over Europe, you get one of his CD’s and you know his music is one you want in your car for every road trip. Great songwriter with a great delivery.
