Songs, stories & celebration: writer-musician-storyteller Robert Burke Warren brings an intimate night of songs – originals and otherwise – and stories – true and otherwise – to the state-of-the-art Mark theater. Renowned for Leonard Cohen, David Bowie, and Johnny Cash tribute shows, Warren, whose own work appears on releases by RuPaul, Rosanne Cash, and rockabilly queen Wanda Jackson, steps up to the microphone to share his own material, spiced with some surprises.

Robert Burke Warren is the author of acclaimed rock and roll novel Perfectly Broken and one-man show Redheaded Friend, editor of Cash on Cash: Interviews & Encounters with Johnny Cash. His writing appears in Salon, Longreads, Texas Music, Brooklyn Parent, The Woodstock Times, Chronogram, Paste, The Rumpus, The Bitter Southerner, and the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, to name a few. In the 90s, he performed the lead in the West End musical Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story. Prior to that he was a globetrotting bass player.
