An Evening of Story & Song on April 12

The wit and wisdom of Henry’s songs are widely renowned, whether a campfire favorite like the biker lullaby “Harley”, to the wonderfully poignant tribute to Martin Luther King, “Beautiful Fool”, and of course his Grammy Award-winning country classic, “Where’ve You Been.” In addition to a Grammy, Kathy Mattea’s version of “Where’ve You Been” won Henry and co-writer Jon Vezner song of the year from the Academy of Country Music, the Country Music Association, and Nashville Songwriters Association International.
Songwriter Jon Vezner is a tunesmith of rare sensitivity and dry wit. His catalogue of recorded songs, topped by the poignant “Where’ve You Been,” reflects his straight-to-the heart sensibility and sensitivity. Vezner weaves the particulars of his own feelings with the lives of people he has known into universal themes that deeply touch listeners’ emotions. The Don Juans are sure to be a hit here on Amelia Island this coming Saturday evening.
