Jackson Browne announces Edinburgh gig

Legendary US singer-songwriter Jackson Browne has announced a summer tour that will see him visit Edinburgh’s Festival Theatre on June 18.

Browne will also visit Glasgow’s Royal Concert Hall on June 19. Prior to this, he will play four consecutive nights at Dublin’s Vicar Street.

Tickets for both Scottish gigs go on sale on friday (December 9).

On this tour, Browne will be accompanied by a band that he himself has called his “ideal band, with some of my favorite players.”

He will be collaborating once more with Val McCallum (guitar), Mauricio Lewak (Drums), Jeff Young (keyboards), Bob Glaub (bass), Alethea Mills (Vocals) and the talented multi-instrumentalist Greg Leisz (guitar, lap steel, pedal steel).

Browne says that his band’s “combined gifts provide the musical foundation and emotional underpinnings of my new songs. The interplay between Val McCallum and Greg Leisz – the effortlessness of their chemistry is a gift really, that just dropped into my lap. I feel fortunate to have them out on the road for this tour.”
