Terry Mann has possibly the most interesting untold story of any musician who began their musical journey in the late 1960s. From the Fillmore East and Woodstock via New York punk, to the music he makes today.
Along the way, Terry had encounters with Jimi Hendrix, Tim Buckley, Phil Ochs and Tim Hardin and many other music legends as well as playing with John Lennon . He learned ‘Suzanne’ from listening to Leonard Cohen playing it in coffee houses.
In the early 80s, Terry left the USA and his musical adventures took him to the streets of Europe, where he toured with his VW van, becoming a street musician, developing his improvisational and performance skills, before settling in Amsterdam, where he has lived for many years, becoming a local musical legend.
Terry, who was always more interested in songwriting than being a star, has spent his life playing music for amusement but has now decided to focus on music as a career and bringing his music to the world. Embodying the influences of his peers and heroes, Terry brings the spirit and fun of the underground 60s and 70s straight to your ears.
His first gig since Covid 19 changed all our lives is at De Pletterij. For this gig Terry will bring his street act to the stage and stream.
If you do have the chance to be in Haarlem on 29th April, you will be delighted that you bought a ticket to Terry’s show, to be there in person for something amazing.
As It is also his first ever streamed gig, you can also be there virtually.
