The Stone Mountain Arts Center will host Jason Spooner at 8 p.m. Friday, May 21 at 695 Dugway Road, in Brownfield.
This multi-award winning New England-based songwriter discovered his father’s collection of eight-track tapes as a child and never looked back. After early exposure to songwriter legends like Neil Young, Paul Simon, Jim Croce and Van Morrison along with Motown heavies like Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder and Gladys Knight, Spooner was inspired to start making the rounds on coffee house stages in his teens.
Shortly thereafter, he spent time in Europe performing in folk and blues clubs and on the streets of London and around Spain. Once back in the states, he landed a job at a roots and blues record label where he witnessed numerous Blues legends (including members of the original Muddy Waters band ) making magic in recording sessions. Before long, he jumped head-first into the Northeast”s burgeoning songwriter scene.
The lobby may or may not be open for lingering, please check before you come if you want to come a little early.
Tickets cost $40.
