Western Edge: Los Angeles Country-Rock in Concert

Presented by Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum at CMA Theater at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum

The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum’s major exhibition Western Edge: The Roots and Reverberations of Los Angeles Country-Rock, presented by City National Bank, traces the close-knit communities of visionary singers, songwriters, and musicians who lived in Los Angeles between the 1960s–1980s and their role in creating and shaping country-rock, the sound that changed American popular music.

Western Edge’s opening weekend will include a pair of one-of-a-kind concerts in the Museum’s CMA Theater, made possible in part by exhibit travel partner American Airlines.

An all-star lineup of musical luminaries associated with country-rock will perform, along with torchbearers who have been influenced by the sounds and artists from the Los Angeles music scene.

Performers include Dave Alvin (the Blasters, the Knitters), Alison Brown (in tribute to California bluegrass), Rodney Dillard (the Dillards), Rosie Flores, Richie Furay (Buffalo Springfield, Poco), Jeff Hanna (Nitty Gritty Dirt Band), Chris Hillman (The Byrds, The Flying Burrito Brothers, The Desert Rose Band), Bernie Leadon (Hearts & Flowers, The Flying Burrito Brothers, the Eagles), John McEuen (Nitty Gritty Dirt Band), Wendy Moten (in tribute to Linda Ronstadt) and Herb Pedersen (The Desert Rose Band and instrumentalist for Linda Ronstadt, Gram Parsons and many more). The house band will be led by Grammy-winning guitar virtuoso and multi-instrumentalist John Jorgenson and includes JayDee Maness (steel guitar), Steve Duncan (drums) and Mark Fain (bass).

More performers to be added.
