Jackson Browne Announces Summer 2012 U.S. Acoustic Tour With Special Guest Sara Watkins

LOS ANGELES, April 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Singer-songwriter Jackson Browne is set to launch his summer 2012 Acoustic Tour with a string of U.S. dates beginning July 14 at the Belk Theater in Charlotte, NC. Playing guitar and piano, Jackson will perform songs from his entire body of work, with varying set lists each night.  Singer-songwriter and fiddle player Sara Watkins will open the Acoustic Tour as a special guest. Tickets go on sale beginning next week; information is available at www.jacksonbrowne.com.   

Sara Watkins first gained recognition as a founding member of the GRAMMY-winning trio Nickel Creek. Sun Midnight Sun, the second solo album from acclaimed singer-songwriter, and fiddle player will be released May 8 on Nonesuch Records. Produced by guitarist, singer, and songwriter Blake Mills, co-founder of the band Simon Dawes, the album features special guest appearances by Fiona Apple, Jackson Browne, Taylor Goldsmith (Dawes), Benmont Tench, and Sean Watkins. "I'm really excited to have Sara joining me on this tour," says Jackson.  "We've played together a number of times in the last few years, sometimes on her show and sometimes mine, and it's always been a thrill for me. I'm floored by her amazing instrumental virtuosity and by her beautiful voice, and most of all, I love her songs."

The tour runs through mid-August, and includes Jackson's first-ever performance at the legendary Newport Folk Festival in Newport, RI (7/29), founded in 1954; the tour's other festival stop is the 11th annual carbon-conscious Floyd Fest on the crest of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Floyd, VA (7/26). Other tour highlights include concerts at Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN (7/18), Filene Center at Wolf Trap in Vienna, VA (7/23), the Beacon Theatre in New York City (8/3), and Cain Park in Cleveland Heights, OH (8/15)

Jackson will be donating $1 from each ticket sold on the U.S. Acoustic Tour to charity.  In addition, premium benefit seats are available for purchase through The Guacamole Fund: www.guacfund.org.  Pre-sale information and VIP packages are available at www.jacksonbrowne.com.

Jackson Browne has written and performed some of the most literate and moving songs in popular music and has defined a genre of songwriting charged with honesty, emotion and personal politics. He was honored with induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004, and the Songwriter's Hall of Fame in 2007. Beyond his music, he is known for his advocacy on behalf of the environment, human rights, and arts education.
