Country tour of the week: Kris Kristofferson, various venues
Friday 20 September 2013
A rare chance to catch one of the country outlaws of the 1970s, who swept his way from janitor at Dylan's Blonde on Blonde sessions to become one of the best country songwriters, not only for his vintage classics but for a recent run of albums focused on age. The horseman approaches but this old cowboy has not lost his spurs.
