Singer/songwriter Jackson Browne performed a benefit concert for Malibu-based Safety Harbor Kids Oct. 4 at the Majestic Theatre in Ventura as part of his Solo Acoustic Fall Tour. 

Browne has supported Safety Harbor for
many years and sits on the board. 

Browne’s show included “Living Off Wonderland,” written about his antics with Little Feat drummer Richie Hayward and others in Laurel Canyon and other favorites including Jackson’s “Take It Easy,” made popular by the Eagles version.  

Guitarist Fred Tackett, of the rock band Little Feat, came on to play “Willin” by Lowell George. The song was recently featured on Cameron Crowe’s hit TV show, “Roadies,” on which Browne played a part. Luke Wilson, the star of “Roadies,” was also in attendance.    

In 2009, Browne performed a duo with Inara George (Lowell’s daughter and member of Bird and the Bee), “Silver and Gold” for the Safety Harbor Kids Holiday Collection CD (available at www.safetyharborkids.org).

Safety Harbor Kids is a nonprofit with the mission to enrich the lives of orphans, foster and homeless children through education in the areas of College, Career, Music and the Arts.  

Many music industry celebs, companies and individuals support the cause. The charity’s ninth annual music fundraiser was supported by Browne, McCabes Guitar shop and Stress and Pain deletion guru Marnie Greenberg, with proceeds going to benefit education programs for parentless children.
