About The Unsung Heroes Series
There is certainly no shortage of great traditional American music out there. But, unbelievably enough, some of the best, most resonant songs of all have been lost in the sands of time, criminally unheard and underappreciated. New music series Unsung Heroes is here to change that.
Guitarist Rick Watson and bassist Todd Robertson bring their passion for roots, Americana, bluegrass, and folk music to The Press Room to shine a spotlight on some of their favorite songwriters and musicians in the region who’ve got all the talent but not always the recognition to match it. Part curated music series and part good ol’ fashioned hootenanny, Unsung Heroes finds Watson, Robertson, and a revolving lineup of special guests joining forces to celebrate the legacy of American music.
About Jerry Short
First featured musical guest in the series, “Highway Jerry” has lived and performed in many different places worldwide and his musical influences represent those travels. He’s toured nearly all of the United States, most of it in an old Chevy van. A great singer/songwriter with a deep love for all types of American roots music, Short is polished on guitar, National steel and harmonica.
Short and and Unsung Heroes series co-creator Rick Watson have been musical partners for 25 years. Along with their songs, Watson and Short will be sharing stories about finding, writing, and performing them across the country.
