Legendary Leon Redbone to perform at ONU

Oct 6, 2009
The Ohio Northern University Freed Center for Performing Arts presents Leon Redbone in the Biggs Theatre on Saturday, Oct. 17, at 8 p.m.

With his signature sunglasses and Panama hat, Redbone has forged a musical career spanning more than 30 years. Breaking in through the folk scene, Redbone's repertoire ranges from Bob Dylan to Eddy Arnold to tunes from his childhood.

Known for his distinctive low-key and laidback voice, Redbone's first album came out in 1975. Since then, he has released more than 15 albums and has written and developed music for television and the big screen.

Redbone has provided theme songs for television shows such as "Harry and the Hendersons" and "Mr. Belvedere." His recording of "Baby, It's Cold Outside" with actress Zooey Deschanel served as the theme song for the movie "Elf."

Tickets are $35 for general admission. The Freed Center box office is open Monday through Friday from noon to 5 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Phone orders are accepted with American Express, MasterCard, VISA or Discover by calling 419-772-1900. Tickets are also available online at
