We wish Lorrie the best of luck at the upcoming gig, and hope that her kids grow up to become Kris Kristofferson fans in their own right. A lot of younger people have discovered the artist their own way – Either through their own parents, Kris’ causes and the charities he works hard to support or discovering a song they enjoy was written by the master himself.
Kris Kristofferson and Lennie’s
Kris performed at Lennies-on-the-Turnpike back in time when we spoke more and wrote less. I don’t know how many times Kris played here, but we know he did some sessions in 1971.
Kris was just starting out. He would become a legend in his lifetime. Lennie’s would be recognised as an iconic jazz mecca.
I have asked Lennie’s relatives if they has any more information. We’ve included a link to the copyrighted pic of a flyer from 1971 in the meantime. (Links back to where the owner posted it to comply with copyright laws) If anyone comes back to us, we’ll let you know.
