You could stock a crowd-pleasing jukebox with the songs Jesse Winchester has written and recorded in the last four decades – and with the better-known versions of his songs that have become hits and album staples for artists ranging from Joan Baez to Elvis Costello to Jimmy Buffett. Winchester’s skill in capturing vivid small town vignettes, heartfelt love and love-lost situations, and goodtime celebrations has yielded a litany of I-know-that-songs: “Yankee Lady,” “Biloxi,” “Brand New Tennessee Waltz,” “Talk Memphis,” “Rhumba Girl,” “Payday,” “I’m Gonna Miss You, Girl,” “Let’s Make a Baby King” and many more. His 2007 Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Society of Composters, Artists and Publishers (ASCAP) is one gauge of the music world’s esteem; Bob Dylan naming Jesse as one of the best songwriters of his generation is another.

    Thank you for bringing this legendary performer to your venue! I have been a fan since the early 80’s and I’m really looking forward to seeing him again. I strongly suggest him to any of your customers. His music appeals to all ages & his song themes are universal. He is the ultimate singer/songwriter. He matches (or exceedes) James Taylor. I look forward to visiting the Ashland Coffee & Tea to see this fine musician.
