Grammy-nominated country artist Pat Green defies categorization by constantly evolving, cultivating an outsider reputation while simultaneously performing on mainstream country music stages alongside the likes of Keith Urban and Kenny Chesney. A Texas boy through and through, the man known for his stellar songwriting surprises again by pairing up with longtime friend (and fellow Texan) Cory Morrow to record an album of songs made famous by other great songwriters like Lyle Lovett, Tom Petty, Shelby Lynne and Jon Randall. Mixing country, rock and blues, Green's latest CD revisits hits like Petty's "Even The Losers" and Collective Soul's "The World I Know," while also showcasing little-known gems like Aaron Lee Tasjan's quirky "Streets Of Galilee" and Todd Snider's burning "I Am Too." Cory Morrow opens the show. Learn More

LOVED this show! Went last night (with my VBTB Barb!) and enjoyed every minute - McGovern has an incredible voice...richer and more enhanced by her '59 and 12 12ths' years. Great retrospective of the Songs of Our Lives...and very talented performer adding her own dimension from West Side Story review to a Beatles anthology.
Her accompanists - Jeff Harris - was equally wonderful - adding a George Winston style back drop to a very accomplished performance. They were a terrific team!
Night was even more fun having scored the tickets on Goldstar - for 1/2 price! -Having paid nearly $100 for a luke warm Aretha performance just last week - this was by far a superior performance, artist and presentation! - Plus, how can you not love this tiny gem of a theater!
Quotes & Highlights
“When I listen to Maureen sing, I discover new layers in songs I’ve known for decades. In this time of uncertainty and change in our country, her reintroduction of great American songs that inspired hope and purpose in a generation is cathartic and inspiring.” —Peter DuBois
“A captivating musical scrapbook from the 1960s to the early ’70s. Ms. McGovern is blessed with a vocal technique second to none.” —New York Times
Grammy Award winner and Pop icon Maureen McGovern’s moving musical memoir chronicles the moments that define the Baby Boomer generation, from the hope-filled years of the 1960s, through the dark years of Vietnam, Watergate, the Civil Rights Movement, the AIDS crisis, and on to today and the hope of a better tomorrow. Best known for her breakout hit, the Academy Award-winning “The Morning After,” McGovern returns to her roots as a folk singer as she performs the classic songs The New York Times has dubbed “the second half of the Great American Songbook,” including the music of Bob Dylan, Carole King, Randy Newman, The Beatles, Laura Nyro, and many more.
