Celebrated singer/songwriter Jesse Colin Young will resume his Highway Troubadour tour next week with a handful of shows in Northern California, a continuation of the tour that Young also has plans to extend into the new year.

Among the shows coming up on the schedule are an opening support slot for the Steve Miller Band at Thunder Valley Casino Resort in Lincoln, Calif., on Friday, Sept. 30, the Rio Theater in Santa Cruz on Sat., Oct. 1, and a spot at the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival in San Francisco on Sunday, Oct. 2. Visit Young’s official site for further details.

Accompanying Young at these three performances will be his daughter, musician Jazzie Young, who has released two EPs of her own — grown up & grown apart and 27 Club, in addition to recording a spirited cover with her father of “Trouble,” originally by Yusuf/Cat Stevens and released as part of the timeless soundtrack to the 1971 film Harold and Maude.

“I have lived with this song in my heart for decades and through many times of trouble,” said Jesse Colin Young. “My daughter Jazzie Young thought I wrote it because I would sing it often. I am delighted to have her sing this with me, as it’s a dear friend to both of us. Thank you, Yusuf Islam, for this gift. And thank you Harold and Maude for bringing it to us in visuals. Happy 50th!”

Added Jazzie:

“‘Trouble’ was the song that introduced me to Yusuf Islam (Cat Stevens). My dad used to play it a lot when I was younger, so it feels like such a cool full circle moment to be able to sing on this record with him.”

In 2020, Jesse Colin Young released Highway Troubadour, a collection of reimagined and re-recorded songs from throughout his career, touching on his solo work as well as his catalog with the Youngbloods.
