The incomparable Janis Ian makes a stop at our intimate stage for just one night on her End of the Line Tour 2022. Delight in the lyrical vocals of this multi-Grammy®-nominated icon, fresh off of her most recent Grammy® recognition, “Patience & Sarah”, which she performed, produced, and co-narrated with Emmy Award winning actress Jean Smart.
With a music career spanning over five generations, Janis Ian first burst upon the music scene at the age of fourteen with her song “Society’s Child”, which became a hit after Leonard Bernstein featured it in 1967 on CBS TV. Telling the tale of interracial romance in this early hit brought her notoriety, as did her later 1975 hit, “At Seventeen”, often featured in commercials and TV shows as an anthem for anti-bullying. Music icons Joan Baez, John Mellencamp, Diane Schurr, and Amy Grant covered her songs, and the talents of Mel Torme, Willie Nelson, and Dolly Parton joined her in duets.
Janis Ian’s concerts always sell out, and this performance will be no different. Get your tickets now, while they are still available.
