The hits just keep coming in 2016. Loss after loss has rocked the world of music, with the latest departed luminary being The Master of Space and Time himself, Mr. Leon Russell. His death weighs heavy on our minds today, so it is only fitting that we honor him as best we can in today’s set of Facebook Live-streaming concerts.
Though our slate begins with a Paste Studio session from Madrid indie-rockers Hinds, it continues this afternoon with a classic concert from Joe Cocker, whose previous Mad Dogs & Englishmen tour boasted none other than Russell as its music director, and ends with a 1987 Nancy Wilson performance in which she covers Russell’s beloved “A Song for You.”
Here are the who, what, when and where of today’s streaming schedule:
- 11:30 a.m. EST: Hinds @ Paste Studio, Jan. 6, 2016
- 2 p.m. EST: Joe Cocker @ Loreley Amphitheatre, Aug. 20, 1983
- 4 p.m. EST: Nancy Wilson @ Newport Jazz, Aug. 15, 1987
