Wachusett Music Series Presents: John Hall of Orleans

Harvard Universalist Unitarian Church
9 Ayer Road
Harvard, MA   

Saturday October 14, 2017 7:00 PM

John Hall is looking forward to playing his songs and telling the stories behind them, and meeting fans on the road. Ever since he was a child growing up and going to school - studying music and science - John learned three things: Play, Write, Listen.

Best known as the founder of the band Orleans, with hits including "Still The One," and "Dance With Me." John co-wrote Janis Joplin's "Half Moon," Steve Wariner's #1 country hit "You Can Dream of Me," and also "Power," which became the theme of the NO NUKES concerts in 1979. John has collaborated in the studio or on stage with Little Feat, Jackson Browne, Bonnie Raitt, Graham Nash, Chet Atkins, James Taylor and Michael McDonald.

His environmental concerns led him into community activism, which also got him on the road into politics, first serving in the Ulster County, New York legislature, then as trustee and president of the Saugerties school board.

John was elected to Congress in 2006, representing five counties in the lower Hudson Valley from January 2007-2011. His first goal was to improve the environment. He met frequently with his constituents, and was the original sponsor of the Veterans Claims Modernization Act of 2008, which was passed unanimously by the House and Senate. He also worked on the Affordable Care Act, and was appointed to the Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming.

He returned to music in 2011 with Orleans, and this year has performed with them from New England to Florida, Texas and Montana. He's also continuing in his environmental activism, and encouraging people to get involved with government and social causes.

John's optimism comes through in stories from his life, musical and political, in his memoir, STILL THE ONE: A ROCK-n-ROLL JOURNEY TO CONGRESS AND BACK.

As John said in a radio interview recently, "Well, it's all up and down from here!"
