CRANFORD—Gordon Wells is on a mission to spread the word about the pedal steel guitar. Join him for a musical trip through pop, a bit of rock, some original melodies, swing and light jazz on Wednesday, Jan. 26, at 7:30 p.m. in the Cranford Community Center, 220 Walnut Avenue.
Wells will also talk about the pedal steel guitar, share anecdotes, and answer questions from the audience. He has performed at the State Theater in New Brunswick and at Bally’s Wild West Casino in Atlantic City. For the past five summers, Wells has been performing with the BethAnne Clayton Band, a fixture on the Jersey Shore music scene. He was also a member of the Eagle Creek Band, which rode the Urban Cowboy/western swing dance craze until disbanding in 1998.
Wells’ appearance is sponsored by the Friends of the Cranford Public Library. Admission is free and all are welcome.
