The Birthplace of Country Music (BCM) announces a concert series where, when it comes to ticket access, friends come first. The Friends of 1927 Concert Series features Karla Bonoff April 25, Paul Thorn June 20, and Jonathan Edwards August 8 in the Performance Theater at the Birthplace of Country Music Museum. A fourth concert, slated for October, has yet to be announced.

"They are very intimate performances where food and cocktails are served and fans get to interact with the artists. We reach out to all of our Friends of 1927 contributors first as a way of thanking them for their support."

About Karla Bonoff
In the 1960s southern California turned out some of the generation's most important and influential artists including Karla Bonoff. The renowned singer/songwriter made a name for herself opening for James Taylor and Jackson Brown while also penning hits for Linda Ronstadt. Bonnie Raitt and Wynonna Judd have also recorded her music. Ironically, Bonoff is perhaps best known for her recording of the 1982 hit, "Personally," a song she didn't write.

A Billboard Magazine review best sums up Bonoff's legacy as a writer and perseverance as a performer: "Long before Alanis and Jewel, there was a breed of singer/songwriters whose earthy anthems of soul-searching, heartache and joy touched souls in a way few can muster today." www.karlabonoff.com
