Eclectic musician David Lindley takes a break from Jackson Browne tour to perform at SJCT

David Lindley takes a break from his world tour with Jackson Browne to bring his eclectic and diverse musical talents back to San Juan Community Theatre, July 7 at 8 p.m.

Tickets are $24 for adults, $12 for student reserved, with $5 student RUSH one hour before the show, if there are still seats available.

The Box Office is open Tuesday through Friday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.; and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tickets may be purchased online at

Lindley last performed at San Juan Community Theatre in 2008, showcasing his wide array of electro-acoustic tunes that combine American folk, blues and bluegrass traditions with elements from Africa, Arabic, Asian, Celtic and Turkish musical sources. That, plus a demented sense of onstage humor and uncanny mimicry, made for a one-of-a-kind performance.

A longtime featured accompanist with Browne, Lindley’s legendary stringed-instrument virtuosity has been showcased on many of Browne’s albums, beginning with 1973’s “For Everyman,” and on classics such as “Late For The Sky” and “The Pretender.”

“What he played did as much to form my music as my writing those songs ... This is one of the great slide players of all time,” Browne said in a 2010 Rolling Stone article.

The evening’s business partner is Funk & Junk Antiques and Coho Restaurant.

(If you miss Lindley July 7, you can catch him July 8, 7:30 p.m., at Orcas Center. Tickets: $25 for adults — $17 for Orcas Center members — and $11 for students.)
