The Clark Center for the Performing Arts proudly presents An Evening with Chris Hillman & Herb Pedersen on Saturday, April 26, 2014 at 8:00pm.

Original Byrds member and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Chris Hillman takes the stage with long time friend and legendary singer, instrumentalist and recording artist Herb Pedersen for an unforgettable evening of rock, folk rock and country music.

If you remember the 1960’s, you remember the Byrds. One of the most successful and influential rock and roll groups of the time, they delivered great hits like “Mr. Tambourine Man,” “Turn, Turn, Turn,” “Eight Miles High” and “So You Want To Be A Rock And Roll Star.”

After the Byrds, Chris Hillman, along with Herb Pedersen and John Jorgenson, formed the critically acclaimed Desert Rose Band. The Desert Rose Band enjoyed numerous Number One country singles, including “One Step Forward,” “Summer Wine,” and “He’s Back and I’m Blue.” The Desert Rose Band was honored by both the Academy of Country Music and the Country Music Association as “Best Vocal Band.”

By the mid-nineties, Hillman and Pedersen began performing as an acoustic duo and have recorded several successful albums together. Their latest record, “At Edwards Barn,” continues their long-running love for the music they embraced so passionately years ago.

Tickets for An Evening with Chris Hillman & Herb Pedersen are $32-$42 and are on sale now. Call (805) 489-9444 for tickets or come to the Clark Center Box Office at 487 Fair Oaks Avenue in Arroyo Grande.
