CRANFORD— The Friends of the Cranford Public Library will host a performance by acclaimed singer/songwriter Greg Trooper on Tuesday, Sept. 28, at 7:30 p.m. in the Cranford Community Center, 220 Walnut Avenue.
A New Jersey native, Trooper has been writing and performing since the early 1970s, with stints in New York City, Austin and Nashville. He has released nine albums, the most recent being “The Williamsburg Affair” (2009), and is currently at work on a new album entitled “Upside-Down Town.”
Billboard magazine has called Trooper “an artist of considerable insight and passion,” while Nashville music critic Robert K. Oermann has said Trooper’s “songs and delivery grab you by the throat.”
In addition to being an impressive performer in his own right, Trooper’s songs have been recorded by the likes of Vince Gill (“We Won’t Dance”), Steve Earle (“Little Sister”), Billy Bragg (“Everywhere”), Roseanne Cash, Maura O’Connell and Robert Earl Keen.
