Four Suns ProductionsA series of concerts paying tribute to Gene Clark, and celebrating a new documentary about late Byrds singer/songwriter, will be held in four East Coast cities next month.
The shows will feature an eclectic lineup of musicians performing Clark's acclaimed 1974 solo album, No Other, in its entirety, and also will include a screening of the movie The Byrd Who Flew Alone: The Triumphs and Tragedy of Gene Clark. The film, which already has been released on DVD, features interviews with surviving Byrds David Crosby, Roger McGuinn and Chris Hillman, as well as archival conversations with Clark.
Among the artists who will perform at the tribute shows are ex-Fairport Convention singer Iain Matthews, as well as members of indie-rock acts Beach House, Fleet Foxes, Grizzly Bear and The Walkmen.
Clark initially was The Byrds' co-lead singer and most prolific songwriter, but he left the band in 1966 because he developed a fear of flying in airplanes. He went on to release a series of influential folk-rock and country-rock albums, although never achieved the success he experienced with his old band. He **** at age 46 in 1991 from the effects of alcohol abuse. To find out more about The Byrd Who Flew Alone, visit FourSunsProductions.com.
