Jim Rooney Speaks Stowe Vermont

On January 19, 2017 at 7PM in the Stowe Free Library's Community Room when Jim Rooney will be joining us to talk about his autobiography, In It for the Long Run: A Musical Odyssey.

In It for the Long Run: A Musical Odyssey is Jim's first hand account of more than five decades of success as a performer, concert promoter, songwriter, music publisher and Grammy winning record producer. Jim was inspired by the Hank Williams and Leadbelly recordings he heard as a teenager growing up outside of Boston. Jim's musical journey includes working with some of the biggest names in American music including Bob Dylan, James Taylor, Bill Monroe, Muddy Waters, Alison Krauss and John Prine.

Jim managed Cambridge's Club 47, a catalyst of the '60's folk music boom. He soon moved to the Newport Folk Festival as a talent coordinator and director where he had a front row seat to Dylan "going electric". Later in his career he was a key link connecting Nashville to Ireland's folk music scene and in 2009, he received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Music Association.

Just this past year in Vermont you could find Jim called to the stage by his friends, bluegrass legend Sam Brush as well as Lyle Lovett and his Large Band at the Flynn. He also just produced new cd's for both Tom Rush and John Prine.

Jim's book will be for sale and signing will be available. Light refreshments will be provided.
