Music Programme 2018

Singer, songwriter and guitarist Jonathan David “JD” McPherson comes from Oklahoma and has a deep-seated love of 50s rhythm ’n’ blues, rockabilly and rock’n’ roll. This is pure vintage, but of a moderne age, with a dash of punk energy. JD McPherson (born 1977) studied visual arts at the University of Tulsa and has taught art and technology. The drive to follow a career in music was too strong, however, and he dropped the teaching job after the release of his debut album Signs & Signifiers in 2010. The album was rereleased in 2012 on the respected Rounder Records label, and that set things in motion for McPherson. In 2015 he made the album Let The Good Times Roll, including the song Bridgebuilder, which McPherson wrote with the Black Keys’ Dan Aurbach. JD McPherson has worked with several other prominent names, among them Parker Millsap, who played at Tønder Festival last year and is back this year. This will be JD McPherson’s only Danish concert in the summer of 2018.
