Ultimate performer Jim Page returns to Marshall Grange

From page B7 | March 22, 2013 |

The Marshall Grange membership is pleased to present a return concert with Jim Page on Saturday March 23 beginning at 7 p.m. Tickets are $12 in advance, $14 at the door and $8 for card-carrying grange members and are available at Rose’s Garden Café in Garden Valley, Main Street Music in Placerville, online at brownpapertickets.com or by calling 530-642-8671.

Page is the ultimate performer, having honed his skills on the streets of Seattle, in a roller rink, as a between sets musician at rock concerts, cocktail lounges where he was seldom invited back, and jazz clubs where he was never invited back.

His music covers a wide range of topics from sweet love songs, to a tale about going to Eugene, Ore. for a Grateful Dead show, to Leonard Peltier, to the World Trade Organization meeting in Seattle, to the killing of civilians, collateral damage, in the Middle Eastern wars.

His songs are stories honestly chronicling the events of the day, told with enough empathy and humor to leave you feeling that there is still hope.

It’s a quality limited to only a few performers like Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, and U. Utah Phillips. Maybe longtime Grateful Dead lyricist Robert Hunter said it best when he said, “If Jim Page ain’t the bastard son of Woody Guthrie I’m T-Bone Walker.”

Page can still be found busking in Seattle down at the Pike Street Market, but the roller rink and cocktail bars have been replaced with folk houses and festivals around the world.

He has shared the stage with Bonnie Raitt, Emmylou Harris, Dan Bern, Michelle Shocked, Mickey Hart, J.J. Cale, Robert Hunter, Chuck Brodsky and John Hammond.

He is also known to take the stage and jam with the electric band Leftover Salmon, making up the lyrics as he goes along.

A versatile man, he will take listeners on a roller coaster ride of both the mind and the soul, and let you out with a smile on your face and hope in your heart. To learn more about him visit jimpage.net.

The Marshall Grange is located at 4940 Marshall Road, in Garden Valley. Driving directions and a sampling of Jim’s tunes may be found at marshallgrange.org.

For further information call 530-642-8671.
