The Wisconsin Room Presents:
Josh Harty & Blake Thomas
with Special Guests Chris Wagoner & Mary Gaines
Friday, March 13 @ North Street Cabaret, Madison
Josh Harty and Blake Thomas come from a deep rooted history of songwriting where quitting is not an option, poetry is as important as melody, and soul is the only thing that matters in the end. Harty has released countless acclaimed records and has toured the world singing songs that have been called “the work of a true son of the heartland whose bold defiance and riveting delivery channel the essence of American music.” (Lee Zimmerman/Glide Magazine)
Thomas is a bit of a maverick: a songwriter, composer, writer and actor (and co-creator of the popular Minnesota Public Radio live show Take It With You). When the two come together, their years of friendship and experience shine in a way you can only see when two extraordinary artists have traveled together, gone through the joys and heartbreaks together, have yelled and screamed at each other, and have broken down by the side of the road more times than you can count. You can see their story before they even strike the first chord. They are songwriters who are never going to quit.
