More Details:

  • Now in its fifth year, the West End Synagogue Concert and Cultural Series has brought performers from all over the country to Nashville and has even featured an award-winning Broadway play. This year the concert is a bit of a departure and aims to honor the rich music legacy that resides right here in Nashville. Performers will include Elisha Hoffman, Even Stevens, Rebecca Lynn Howard, Paul Overstreet and Marti Frederiksen. Their work covers several genres of popular music and spans decades.
  • Stevens is a recent inductee into the Musician’s Hall of Fame and a BMI Songwriter of the Year. Among his hits are “When You’re in Love With a Beautiful Woman” for Dr. Hook and “I Love a Rainy Night” for Eddie Rabbit. Overstreet is a two-time Grammy Award Winner who wrote “Forever and Ever Amen” for Randy Travis and “Some Beach” for Blake Shelton.
  • Frederiksen’s hits include “Jaded” for Aerosmith and Carrie Underwood’s “Undo It.” Howard, a country artist, has won two Grammy Awards and her songs have been recorded by Trisah Yearwood, Martina McBride, Clay Aiken and Jon Michael Montgomery among others. Along with Hoffman, Frederiksen and Suzie McNeil, Howard is part of the band Loving Mary.
  • Hoffman, a member of West End Synagogue, has been instrumental in bringing together this group of musi- cians. He has had a long working relationship with Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler, wrote Faith Hill’s “Give in to Me” for the soundtrack to the film “Country Strong” and has worked with artists from ZZ Top to the Dixie Chicks.
  • “This year’s concert is unlike any we’ve done in the past,” said West End President Barbara Dab. “It features Nashville’s homegrown talent and will be an unforgettable evening. We are excited to share this historic program with the greater Nashville community.”
