The first show in the cabaret's spring series, "They Write the Songs: A Springtime Salute to the Great Songwriters," the Spurs USA pay unbridled homage to the ground-breaking singer/songwriters of country western music, including Hank Williams, Kitty Wells, Willie Nelson and Loretta Lynn. Six musicians with disparate musical backgrounds, members of the Spurs USA joined forces some 18 months ago, sharing their common love of the country western tradition.
Bookings for subsequent weeks of the Fort's Songwriter Series include Bob Warren and his six-piece folk band on the Mainstage on April 13. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. for the 8 p.m. shows. The $25 admission includes a $5 credit toward coffee and dessert provided by Norene and Fred's of Salem; advance reservations are recommended. For more information call (518) 854-9200.
