The ACMA is thrilled to be continuing our Americana Acoustic Series in collaboration with The Tribby Arts Center at Shellpoint Village.
Rod MacDonald will step on the stage on August 24th!
A veteran of the Greenwich Village folk scene, Rod MacDonald’s happily ensconced in Delray and still manages to eke out a pretty good living with frequent touring and an ongoing series of master classes at FAU where he lectures on popular music.
Prior to relocating to these realms in 1995, MacDonald was a constant presence at many of New York’s most prestigious folk clubs, including Gerdes Folk City and the Bottom Line, and his level activity both here and abroad hasn’t faltered since.
Despite frequent overseas tours, he manages to make regular Florida appearances, not only under his own auspices, but also as part of his Dylan tribute band Big Brass Bed and in a traditional group setting with singer Tracy Sands. Their songs are devoted to social and political commentary; his “American Jerusalem” was hailed for its commentary about the contrast between the rich and the poor. It’s little wonder his material has been covered by the likes of Dave Van Ronk, Shawn Colvin, and Jonathan Edwards.
He can also claim ten solo albums and shared stages with Emmylou Harris, Pete Seeger, Peter Yarrow, Richie Havens, Ani DiFranco, Odetta, Suzanne Vega, and the Violent Femmes. Whew!
Tickets $25.00. https://www.tribbyartscenter.com
