Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Chris Hillman will bring his “Time Between: An Evening of Stories and Songs” to the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall on Jan. 18. Tickets go on sale 10 a.m. Friday, July 24.
Hillman has never stopped making music, but the last few years have seen the music, milestones, special events and live performances happening at an exceptional pace.
In 2017, he released the acclaimed “Bidin’ My Time,” his first solo album in 12 years, produced by Tom Petty and executive-produced by Herb Pedersen. In 2018, the 50th anniversary of The Byrds’ groundbreaking “Sweetheart of the Rodeo” album, was celebrated with a special tour featuring Hillman and fellow Byrds alum Roger McGuinn, joined by country legends Marty Stuart and His Fabulous Superlatives.
Following the “Sweetheart” tour, in January 2019, Hillman became the focus of another benchmark event when the Museum of Ventura County honored his six-decade career with a vivid retrospective. Titled “Chris Hillman: Time Between,” the exhibit spanned the ’60s to the present and showcased Hillman’s legacy through stories, memorabilia, instruments and stage attire. A special evening also featured Hillman performing songs and narrating his life in music.
For the Jan. 18 show Hillman, on mandolin and guitar, will be joined by Herb Pedersen playing rhythm guitar and banjo and John Jorgenson on guitars and mandolin.
Hillman’s memoir, “Time Between: My Life as a Byrd, Burrito Brother, and Beyond,” will be released by BMG in September.
As the momentum continues, Hillman is enjoying each chapter of the experience.
“I’ve had a great life,” he said. “And it’s not over — we’re not done.”
Tickets can be purchased at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre box office on Thursdays or Fridays or on Ticketmaster. The Ponte Vedra Concert Hall box office is closed at this time.
