  • “Don’t Mess Around with Jim” and other unforgettable classics.

The trio captures the haunting melodies of Croce’s:

  • Lightfoot’s “Affair on Eighth Avenue”
  • as well as the irresistible acoustic pulse of tunes like
    • “Car Wash Blues”
    • “Leroy Brown”
    • “Sundown”.

“Croce and Lightfoot are two of the greatest songwriters in recent history….”

House Manager and Programming Director, Nicole Thompson, says of the music, “Croce and Lightfoot are two of the greatest songwriters in recent history.  They were both musical storytellers.  Even if you think you don’t know the music, you’ve probably heard it somewhere along the line.  If not, you’ll enjoy experiencing this music for the first time and be hooked!  For fans of these two musicians, you’ll enjoy a night of great music and nostalgia.”

Many thanks to the concert sponsors for their support:  Bluefield Inn, Century 21, and Bill Cole Automall
