Ryan White, author – Jimmy Buffett: A Good Life All the Way

January 16 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Free

Singer-songwriter Jimmy Buffett scuffed around New Orleans, washed out of the Nashville scene, and found refuge among the artists, shrimpers, and genuine characters at the end of the road in Key West. Music critic Ryan White describes how Buffett found his voice and eventually brought to life the song that would launch Parrot Head nation: “Margaritaville.” Twice named one of the top writers in the country by the Society for Features Journalism, White spent nearly 16 years at the Oregonian covering sports, music, and culture. He is the author of Jimmy Buffett: A Good Life All the Way and a retrospective on Bruce Springsteen.
