Chris Hillman and Herb Pedersen In Concert At
 Indian Cove Amphitheatre, Joshua Tree National Park

08/01/2012 09:23PM ● Published by Denise Brown

Legendary Rock & Roll Hall of Famer, Chris Hillman, along with master musician Herb Pedersen, recently performed a “nostalgic stew” of music from the Byrds, The Flying Burrito Brothers, the Desert Rose Band, and other individual selections from careers spanning almost 50 years.

Hillman is the last living member of The Flying Burrito Brothers and treated the audience to his reflections of the park as well as former band-mate Gram Parsons. Herb Pedersen has backed up Emmylou Harris, Dan Fogelberg, John Denver and many other legends in the music business and it was quite obvious that he and Chris have played together for years. Hometown favorites, the Shadow Mountain Band, opened for Hillman and Pedersen and their set reminded audience members of just how talented they really are. The event was presented by the Joshua Tree National Park Association as one of their annual cultural music productions in the park. Last year’s concert featured legendary songstress, Rita Coolidge and the series of musicians with ties to Joshua Tree National Park is becoming a much anticipated annual event.
