Marshall Crenshaw may not have the vocal chops of his youth but his repertoire of old favorites intertwined with some songwriting stories and a firm connection with his audience charmed a Main Stage crowd Friday night at the Dogwood Center.
Most of those in attendance seemed familiar with his lengthy musical history dating back to the 1980’s and he struck gold with his renditions of “Cynical Girl”, “There She Goes Again” and, the final song of a one and a half hour set, “Marianne”.
Called for an encore by an enthusiastic group of patrons, Crenshaw gave us two more selections including a soulful take on the Everly Brothers “So Sad” as a tribute to the recently departed Don Everly.
While steaming hot outside the air conditioned Dogwood provided the perfect venue for a Friday night filled with music delivered by one of rock’s true legends.
