Gene Burnett at the Wild Goose
Posted: 9:10 AM September 15, 2011
Music has played several roles in the life of
singer and songwriter Gene Burnett. It has been a career, a hobby, a
form of therapy and, sometimes, just plain fun.
he started performing in 1975, the Ashland guitarist has written more
than 500 songs, recorded 25 albums and shows no signs of stopping. In
addition to teaching tai chi for a living, Burnett plays regular gigs
and open mics at Tabu, The Wild Goose, Talent's Downtowne Coffehouse and
other Ashland venues. He will perform his usual "third Wednesday" show
at 8 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 21, at The Wild Goose, 2365 Ashland St.,
Burnett's songs lean toward the pop
side of folk music. He applies "balance," also the underlying principle
of tai chi, to his songwriting, which manages to be funny and serious,
sweet and edgy, emotional and intellectual.
