Josh Okeefe: Online Concert

Thu. April 22nd | 7:00pm - 8:00pm EDT

Virtual Virtual Event
Free

Join us for an online concert as we welcome Josh Okeefe to the library stage Thursday, April 22nd at 7pm EST!

We’ll be broadcasting the show on FacebookYouTube, and via our website.

The 4,115 miles that troubadour Josh Okeefe traveled from his birthplace of Derby, England, to his current home of Nashville, Tennessee, tell just one small part of a nomadic life in music which actually spans generations and encompasses myriad genres, traditions and disciplines. Although a relatively new artist, the young guitar-and-harmonica-playing singer-songwriter delivers unforgettably potent lyrics with the gravitas of a seasoned veteran. Attesting to his versatility and wide appeal, Okeefe has also had his songs recorded by Nashville-based major-label artists Ashley Monroe and High Valley, among others.

Josh has performed sold-out shows from California to North Carolina and from Nashville to London and Glasgow, Okeefe has shared stages with legends including Kris Kristofferson, playing for a crowd of 10,000 at London’s Kenwood House for the iconic songwriter’s birthday celebration. He’s also performed with Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, Alison Krauss and Rufus Wainwright, among many others.

“Okeefe’s voice hits you with the force of a hurricane: a rare, powerful, gravelly sound, the likes of which is usually crafted from many decades of nicotine, alcohol and hard living in the deep south.” – No Depression, The Journal of Roots Music

“He seems to turn a lightbulb on in your head, makes you ask yourself questions and seems to say what is on the tip of everyone’s tongue. Is he the next commentator for this generation? Only time will tell.” – HuffPost
