The Sheridan Arts Foundation presents Americana singer-songwriter James McMurtry live in concert on Monday, July 23. The son of acclaimed author Larry McMurtry (Lonesome Dove, Terms of Endearment), James grew up on a steady diet of Johnny Cash and Roy Acuff records. His first album, "Too Long in the Wasteland" (released in 1989), was produced by John Mellencamp and marked the beginning of a series of acclaimed projects for Columbia and Sugar Hill. In 1996, McMurtry received a Grammy nomination for his Longform Music Video of "Where'd You Hide The Body." 1997's It Had To Happen received the American Indie Award for Best Americana Album. Hailing from Austin, TX, McMurtry's music is beloved for its honest storytelling and political activism. Tickets are $25 general admission on the floor (seats out dancing) and $35 reserved balcony. A $4 ticketing fee applies at all sales outlets.
