Leon Russell 2013
Rock and Roll Hall of Famer!
Few, if any, performers can come close to the fifty plus year career of rock and roll Hall of Famer Leon Russell. From his contributions as a session man to dozens of hits by the likes of the Byrds, to his well known work with Joe Cocker and Mad Dogs and Englishmen, to collaborations, tours and more with the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, and Willie Nelson, Leon Russell has done it all. Expect Leon to perform some of his hits such as "Tightrope," and his classics made famous by others such as "My Masquerade" (George Benson) and "Hummingbird" ( B.B.King).
Leon Russell is presented by Whistling Swan Productions.

Whistling Swan Productions strives to provide a listening environment where patrons and artists can focus on the music without distraction. Because of the quiet acoustic nature of most of our shows, all children in attendance should be able to sit without supervision in a way that does not distract or disturb other listeners for sets that normally last at least an hour, and may stretch to two full hours. In our four decades of producing shows, attending shows with our own children, and supervising students as educators, we have found that children under the age of nine (9) seldom have the interest and focus to sit through acoustic shows of this length without causing stress on parents, musicians, and other listeners. Therefore, while there are rare exceptions, we strongly advise parents to not bring children under the age of nine to Whistling Swan shows unless they are specifically labeled as for children or families.
