DERRY, NH – Marc Cohn is celebrating 25 years in the music business with a stop at the Tupelo Music Hall Aug. 5.Cohn’s soulful Elvis-inspired ballad, “Walking in Memphis,” won him a Grammy and solidified his place as one of this generation’s most compelling singer/songwriters, combining the precision of a brilliant tunesmith with the passion of a great soul man. He’s a natural storyteller, balancing the exuberant with the poignant, and able to distill universal truth out of his often romantic, drawn-from-life tales.
Cohn’s touring in support of his latest release, Careful What you Dream: Lost Songs and Rarities, and bonus album, Evolution of a Record, featuring never-before-heard songs and demos dating back to years before his debut album and the Grammy Award that followed. In addition to releasing new music, Cohn has put together a concert tour where he is performing his debut record in its entirety from start to finish. To makes these shows even more intimate, photographs and video from Marc’s personal archives will be shown, allowing fans to not only hear the music that has become part of their own personal soundtrack, but to also see some of the people and places that populate those songs.
Tickets are $45-65, and can be purchased here.
