Launching his career with The Lovin' Spoonful in 1964, John Sebastian has gone on to become one of America's most beloved singer songwriters. His tireless championing of American music put him at the forefront of the U.S. answer to Beatlemania, and in the center of the folk revival of the 50's and 60's alongside the likes of Pete Seeger, Woody Guthrie, and Joni Mitchell. His modern brand of Americana took him to some of the biggest locales in modern music history including Woodstock and Isle of Wight, and brought him work with a serious who's who of the folk world. John Sebastian's warm and friendly approach to performance him allowed him to connect with both audiences and fellow players in a way that few artists do. In 2000, his legacy was cemented with a spot in the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, and he hasn't slowed down a bit. He's still writing and touring with the geniality and grace of someone truly grateful for their life in music.
