JON CARROLL
“Jon Carroll is a one man band, a poet, a songwriter, a singer of every kind of song and above
all, a musician’s musician…and I can also attest to his being a not-to-be-missed performer.”
~Mary Chapin Carpenter
Jon Carroll began performing in his early childhood in
Fredericksburg, VA before his family moved to Washington D.C., where he soon
began his career with the Grammy award winning Starland Vocal Band
(“Afternoon Delight”) in the 70’s. He has continued on an artistically versatile
path as an award winning performer, songwriter, composer and all around
musician. His songs have been recorded by such artists as Linda Ronstadt and Tom
Jones and on stage and in studio he’s backed up Peter Wolf, Rodney Crowell, Mary
Chapin Carpenter (for over 25 yrs), Dixie Chicks, Eric Lindell and countless
others.
A veteran award recipient of the Washington Area Music Association,
Carroll has been awarded 23 “Wammies”, including Album of the Year (for his
CDs Love Returns and Live Returns), Musician of the Year, Song of the Year,
Songwriter, Vocalist and Pop/Rock Instrumentalist of the Year. His shows are
performed in many configurations near and far, but hearing him solo is a rare treat,
as Jon’s experience has culminated in a rich repertoire that contains multitudes of
styles and regional sensibilities that make for a rich and soulful journey through
story and song.
