Kenny Loggins returns to Harris Center

Last year Kenny Loggins performed at Harris Center/Three Stages, 10 College Parkway in Folsom, for just one evening; it sold out immediately. This year he returns for three concerts, joined by an opening act with the Blue Sky Riders, a new trio consisting of Loggins, Gary Burr and Georgia Middleman.

Loggins has been many things to many people over the past three decades — “a moving target” as he’s put it. In his time, Loggins has been a guitar slinger with a psychedelic rock band, a hot young songwriter with a publishing deal, half of a legendary country-rock duo, a massively successful and accomplished solo artist, a sonic pioneer in the smooth jazz genre, a reigning soundtrack superstar, a rocker, as well as an enduring recording artist and live performer.

Loggins will perform on Monday, Aug. 5; Tuesday, Aug. 6; and Wednesday, Aug. 7 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $49 to $69 with premium tickets available for $79.

Tickets are available online at harriscenter.net or from the Harris Center ticket office at 916-608-6888 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Saturday and two hours before show time.

Parking is included in the price of the ticket. A dashboard permit is provided with tickets for weekday events.

By any standard, Loggins’ commercial impact has been extraordinary; 12 of his albums have gone platinum and beyond. In a world of one hit wonders and 15 minute sensations, Loggins has enjoyed hit songs in four straight decades — a remarkable testament to his exceptional craftsmanship and stamina.

Currently, Loggins is recreating himself all over again as part of the trio, Blue Sky Riders.

The creative spark that eventually evolved into Blue Sky Riders was struck when two veteran singer/songwriters worked on their first song together. When Loggins joined forces with Gary Burr, one of Nashville’s most accomplished writers, on the well received 2008 release “How About Now” they felt they sounded like brothers when they sang together. Loggins decided on the spot to form a band but wanted to add a third, a female voice. Burr, who has been named Songwriter of the Year by ASCAP, Billboard and NSAI suggested singer/songwriter Georgia Middleman, who has worked with Keith Urban, Faith Hill and Martina McBride among others. Blue Sky Riders was born. All three veterans sing lead amid three-part harmonies.

Blue Sky Riders released its debut album, “Finally Home,” on its own record label, 3Dream Records, on Jan. 29.
