Sunday Music Brunch (Menu starts 10am, music at noon) Jim Colbert & Friends
Sunday Jun 25th, 2017
Bellefonte Singer songwriter Jim Colbert is no stranger to Webster's, having played here for almost as long as there has been a Webster's. With multiple first places in national songwriting competitions, Colbert has performed his lyric-driven originals at festivals, coffeehouses, house concerts and listening rooms from New Hampshire to California. He has shared the stage with such notables as Danny Schmidt, Red Molly, Ben Bedford, Verlon Thompson, Small Potatoes and Pat Wictor. Jim was the original host of the Wide Open Mic at Webster's, and is involved behind the scenes in numerous acoustic music and poetry-oriented events.
“Jim Colbert has a passion for writing songs that few people have these days. He is a craftsman and a writer who is constantly listening and honing songs that illuminate, narrate, and entertain."
- Joe Crookston, singer/songwriter, Ithaca, NY
“Opening for Red Molly, Jim Colbert entered a room full of strangers and left a room full of fans and friends, all won over by his engaging personality, warm voice, and a set of well-crafted, personal songs.”
-Gene Frey, Court House Concerts, Merrick, NY
“I was proud to bring Jim Colbert’s songs on my Americana in Paris radio show, in the company of Richard Shindell and Johnny Cash. Jim’s songs are about the real life, when it’s tough and when it hurts. When I realized I was whistling Pale Green Eyes to myself like a good David Olney tune, I knew Colbert had caught me straight in the heart.”
-Hervé Oudet, Americana in Paris
