A true living legend of songwriting, Jimmy Webb’s been crafting amazing songs, many of which have become cherished standards, for some 40 years. And he’s still doing it. A brand new album, Just Across The River, featuring duets with many luminaries (including Jackson Browne, Michael McDonald, Glen Campbell, Vince Gill, Billy Joel, Linda Ronstadt and more) has just been released, and it might serve as the bridge that connects this songwriter with his famous songs in the public mind. Though some might still not know his name, they know the songs: “Wichita Lineman,” “By The Time I Get To Phoenix,” “Galveston,” “The Moon’s A Harsh Mistress,” “All I Know,” “The Highwayman,” “Up, Up and Away,” “MacArthur Park,” and many more. And those are just the famous ones. Webb is one of those rare songwriters who manages to bring a genuine measure of magic to everything he touches. An unforgettable evening at the Opera House this summer. Concert begins at 7:30 PM. Advance tickets $22, Day of show purchase $27. The Opera House at Boothbay Harbor, 86 Townsend Avenue. Box office: 633-5159 or boothbayoperahouse.com.
