Leon Russell has gotten too long in the tooth to be up on a “Tight Rope,” but his piano-playing hasn’t deteriorated nor his singing and he’ll play “A Song For You,” along with any number of other tunes of his choosing when he comes to Headliners on November 15. Of course, you know that Russell has been an integral part of the American music business for thirty or forty years now, has played with so many famous musicians (including New Grass Revival) as a sideman that it’s pointless to try to list them. He has made many, many records, though while successful enough, they didn’t make much noise on the charts. He last played Louisville at last year’s Abbey Road On The River festival and was at Headliners the year before. Tickets to the show are $35 seated / $25 SRO. Dog House Kitchen will open.

Here’s a live fan video from the House Of Blues, Dallas:

Abbey Road On The River, which began its run as all-Beatles all the time festival, has begun the process of morphing into a Sixties-era festival, though with the Beatles still dominant in the mix. The event runs May 23-27 on the Belvedere, in the Galt House and also in the Muhammad Ali Center. Headliners this year include Leon Russell, Peter Noone of Herman’s Hermits and Peter Asher of Peter And Gordon fame, plus the usual lineup of Beatles cover bands, as well as some Louisville groups like The Johnny Doughnut Experience and several YPAS groups.

Here’s a highlight reel from the 2012 Abbey Road On The River:

Leon Russell

Headliners announced a couple of interesting shows today – Leon Russell will appear on August 27 and the Chris Knight Band will play the Lexington Road club on September 6. Russell, of course, is a boomer favorite, having been in the business for fifty-plus years, both as a sideman and band leader. Chris Knight is Slaughters, Kentucky’s favorite son and a sharp-tongued songwriter of very memorable ballads. Really memorable ballads. He’s always got a fanbase from around the state that will show up to hear him, even in Louisville.
