Richie Havens

 

continued

Havens was in his twenties at Woodstock, but his unique rough-gruff voice made him sound like a much older man. Today, at nearly seventy, his voice has mellowed a little--paradoxically, he sounds younger now. And, as his warmly received January appearance at this year's Ann Arbor Folk Festival showed, the wild energy of his guitar strumming has not diminished one bit. He also confirmed he has plenty of kick left when he jumped up and clicked his heels while walking off stage.

Havens' show at the Ark on July 10 will be his eighth visit to the club. Walter Parks, his main sideman since 2001, will once again accompany him. Parks is a versatile and inventive guitarist, with a sure touch for finding just the right notes and phrases to complement Havens' sound. Their last two shows at the Ark, in 2005 and 2007, both sold out, so don't wait too long to get your tickets.    (end of article)
