Watch Leon Redbone perform "Harvest Moon"
With his totally iconic guise of the signature Panama hat, jacket and sunglasses, Leon Redbone’s career first gained momentum in the early 70’s when Bob Dylan sought him out at The Mariposa Folk Festival, and then told Rolling Stone that if he ever started a label, Redbone would be the first artist he would record. As a sole curator of the museum of 20th Century music, Leon Redbone has continued his love affair with times from the turn-of-the-century, flapper-era ditties, Depression forged Ragtime and WWII era folk-jazz.
“Leon Redbone, a master guitarist who’s been at it for 40 years, offers a distinctive style and an easy going live show.”
