He start with a group called the Stone Poneys was less than over-whelming, but Ronstadt has developed into one of the finest, most energetic country singers around. Jackson Browne writes pleasant songs. Other people sing them better. Friday, March 1, at the Orpheum Theater, $4-$6.
Dave Mason. Traffic and Delaney & Bonnie are the two best-known groups to which Dave Mason has lent his guitar-playing talents. He takes center stage himself Saturday, March 2, at the Orpheum Theater, $4-$6.
John Lincoln Wright and the Sour Mash Boys. I have never heard John Lincoln Wright and the Sour Mash Boys, an electric country band which in various forms frequented Cambridge night spots for years. But another Crimson reviewer with respectable credentials claims that they are not to be missed, especially since you can hear them cheaply and conveniently. Their next local appearance is Thursday, February 28, at King's on Boylston St.
