"Jack Broadbent," Spire Center for Performing Arts, Plymouth, Massachusetts, USA

Musical magic was created on this particular evening at the Spire Center for Performing Arts in downtown Plymouth. It takes a special and extraordinary performer to walk onto an empty stage with just his guitar, voice, and wits to single-handedly capture and enthrall a crowd for the evening.

Londoner Jack Broadbent was the artist who accomplished that. (Note: his unusual hair coloring in all these images is from the stage lighting).

The Spire often brings very talented performers to its stage but, some are particular standouts. Jack Broadbent was one such artist.

A recognized master of the slide guitar he presented both original material and favorites from other creators. He was fully engaged with the crowd, the fourth wall essentially non-existent as he wove his tunes and stories throughout the evening with the captivated audience.

After a performance, an artist often will come out to the lobby and mingle with the crowd, sell a few CD's, vinyl, or other merch. I have rarely seen the numbers of patrons lining up who I saw after this show to buy a CD so they could both support Mr. Broadbent and take home his extraordinary music for anytime listening.  What a talent!

Support local, live performing arts here in our town. Come to the Spire Center for Performing Arts. They offer year-around performances.
