Kenny Loggins, March 26
Kenny Loggins has been many things to many people over the past three decades - "a moving target" as he's put it. In his time, Loggins has been a guitar-slinger with a psychedelic rock band, a hot young songwriter with a publishing deal, half of a legendary country-rock duo, a massively successful and accomplished solo artist, a sonic pioneer in the smooth jazz genre, a reigning soundtrack superstar, a rocker, a seeker, as well as an enduring recording artist and live performer whose most recent works have spoken deeply to both young audiences and decidedly adult and worldly concerns. At the heart of it all, there remains a brilliant singer-songwriter and guitarist with a lifelong passion for exploring the endless power of the song to communicate
In the 80s, Loggins became more famous than ever as the king of the movie theme songs, thanks to massive smashes like "I'm Alright" (from Caddyshack), "Footloose" (from Footloose), "Danger Zone" (from Top Gun), and "Nobody's Fool" (from Caddyshack II). Loggins also continued to record albums that were introspective and deeply personal, including 1985's Vox Humana, 1988's Back to Avalon, 1991's Leap of Faith (featuring "Conviction of the Heart," a song Al Gore called "the unofficial anthem of the environmental movement"), The Unimaginable Life (1997) and 2003's It's About Time. During this same period, Loggins continued to take on new challenges like recording a Christmas album (1998's December) and two successful and acclaimed CDs for children: 1994's radiant Return To Pooh Corner and its worthy follow-up, More Songs From Pooh Corner. Now he back doing what he does bestfor one night only at the North Fork Theatre on March 26th.
