Jesse Terry, Matt Turk, Marc Von Em: Songwriters in the Round
25 Old Jackson Avenue, Hastings-on-Hudson, NY 10706 USA
Help us kick off our lucky 13th year of concerts at Common Ground with three great artists — all with Westchester roots: Jesse Terry, Matt Turk, and Marc Von Em. Jesse Terry is a nationally touring, award-winning singer-songwriter and road warrior. His music has been compared to the likes of Ryan Adams, Jackson Browne, Paul Simon and James Taylor. Jesse has toured relentlessly in support of his two full-length albums. Terry released his second album Empty Seat On A Plane on July 10th of 2012. A seasoned recording artist, multi-instrumentalist, eternal idealist and peace loving realist, Matt Turk is a veteran performer who has engaged audiences around the world, both as a hard-rocking bandleader and an acoustic folk troubadour. He has shared the stage with Judy Collins, Bob Dylan, Pete Seeger, Norah Jones, the Dave Matthews Band, the Grateful Dead’s Mickey Hart and Phil Lesh, Hot Tuna, Richie Havens, Fiona Apple, The Doobie Brothers, Ellis Marsalis, NRBQ, and many more. Marc Von Em is a soulfully energized singer/songwriter whose sound flows easily between blues, folk, funk, jazz & classical. His lyrics weave tales of intimate real-life events, and do so with a depth beyond most singer/songwriters. Driven by his fluid acoustic guitar playing, rich powerful voice, and comfortable, sometimes comical, stage presence, Marc’s live shows never fail to excite audiences. Marc’s career took an unexpected turn when he was asked to be part of the Rob Thomas (Matchbox Twenty) Band. Circling the globe with Rob as a backing vocalist and guitarist, Marc appeared on all the major TV programs from The Today Show to The Tonight Show.
