Music from the hit show Grievous Angel: The Legend of Gram Parsons
Grievous Angel: The Legend of Gram Parsons: is a theatrical concert about the original cosmic cowboy, who lived fast, died young and left a charred corpse. The creative force behind some of the most important recordings of the late ‘60s and early ‘70s, Parsons pioneered country rock with The Byrds’ Sweetheart of the Rodeo, schooled the Rolling Stones in American roots music, created The Flying Burrito Brothers and recorded two classic solo albums, GP and Grievous Angel, with his musical protégé, Emmylou Harris.
Grievous Angel: The Legend of Gram Parsons was inspired by Michael Bate’s March 1973 interview with the doomed singer in Boston. It was Parsons’ last recorded conversation. The theatrical concert is produced and directed by Michael Bate.
