Event details

Postponed from 30th May 2021.

An evening of music and storytelling with America’s greatest songwriter...

Jimmy Webb has written songs that transcend generations and genres – think 'Wichita Lineman', 'MacArthur Park', 'By the Time I Get to Phoenix' and 'Didn’t We'.

This motown-trained composer writes all of his own lyrics and music and is the only hit maker to have scored songs on the pop, country, R&B, rap, disco and new age charts.

During An Evening with Jimmy Webb, you will hear this multi-Grammy Award winner’s songs and experience his insightful, and often humorous, stories about his work with Glen Campbell, Frank Sinatra, Linda Ronstadt, Art Garfunkel, The Fifth Dimension, The Highwaymen, Kanye West and more.

Jimmy Webb is the author of the memoir, The Cake and the Rain, and the “bible” of songwriting, Tunesmith: The Art of Songwriting. In 2019 Webb released a piano-only CD, 'SlipCover', featuring some of his favourite songs from his contemporaries; Billy Joel, Paul Simon, The Rolling Stones and more.

“… A night with Jimmy at the keys is not unlike getting to hear George Gershwin or Cole Porter live. It’s hard to believe one guy could have written all these amazing songs… if you get a chance to see him live, grab it...” – Paul Zolo, American Songwriter Magazine.
