Tribute to a true troubadour
Who’s who of songwriters gather to honor a New England folk icon
When folk singer/songwriter Bill Morrissey died on July 23, unexpectedly and too soon at 59, his loss was profoundly felt in the New England folk community he had nurtured since arriving on the scene in the early 1980s. As heartfelt anecdotes and memorials streamed in online, it didn’t take long for his contemporaries and admirers to pay their respects. ”Friend of Mine: The Bill Morrissey Tribute Concert” - a staggering lineup of singer-songwriters will salute his work next Thursday at the Somerville Theatre.
