The bluesy, rocking, and thoroughly Southern sounds of Paul Thorn returning to Thrasher
Critically-acclaimed singer/songwriter Paul Thorn will be making a much-anticipated return visit to the historic Thrasher Opera House in Green Lake for not one, but two nights of Southern-rock fun on Friday and Saturday, May 2 & 3 at 7:30 p.m.
"He has an incredible base of loyal fans, some of whom will be traveling from as far away as Ontario, Canada to attend BOTH performances at Thrasher. Without any advertising on our part, the Saturday night tickets are almost sold out. If you want the chance to experience what the buzz is all about, make sure you get your tickets soon", said Roby Irvin, Program Director.
Thorn has been pleasing crowds for years with his muscular brand of roots music – bluesy, rocking and thoroughly Southern, and is a favorite guest on the "Bob and Tom" syndicated radio show, as well as "Dan Aykroyd’s House of Blues Radio Hour."
Born in Tupelo, Mississippi and raised among the same spirits (and some of the actual people) who nurtured a young Elvis, generations before, Thorn has rambled down back roads, jumped out of airplanes, worked for years in a furniture factory, and battled four-time world champion boxer Roberto Durán on national television. Today, according to a review by the Americana Music Times, he is considered "One of the best Americana songwriters and touring performers. A walking personification of what is American music.”
He has opened for Bonnie Raitt, Mark Knopfler, and John Prine, among many other headliners...and made some of the most emotionally restless, yet fully accessible music of our time. "Paul is one of my favorite artists!" –Bonnie Raitt
