VersoFest 2024 Schedule

Legendary music producer Tony Visconti will headline VersoFest 2024 at The Westport Library, appearing in the Library’s Trefz Forum on Saturday, April 6.

Visconti will be in conversation with WFUV's Paul Cavalconte for The Westport Library's third annual music and media festival, discussing his art and career as one of pop music’s longest working and most influential producers. This event is free and requires registration.

Beyond music, Visconti has created moments blooming into cultural movements (glam rock) and art linked to collective memory in David Bowie’s “The Man Who Sold The World,” “Rebel Rebel,” and “Heroes,” and T. Rex’s “Get It On (Bang A Gong),” “Cosmic Dancer,” and “20th Century Boy.”

Lifetime achievements, GRAMMY Awards, film and TV soundtracks, and many other honors celebrate Visconti’s production and arrangement vision, which also includes collaborations with Thin Lizzy, Paul McCartney & Wings (for their famed Band on the Run album), U2, Bert Jansch, Angelique Kidjo, Luscious Jackson, Alejandro Escovedo, the Strawbs, Fall Out Boy, Gentle Giant, Mercury Rev, Sparks, Badfinger, The Moody Blues, The Alarm, Kristeen Young, and D-Generation.

In addition, Visconti recently arranged the strings on New Haven musician and former Verso Studios Connecticut Music Oral History Podcast guest Kelly Reilly’s “Happiness Lasts.”

Visconti is currently touring the globe celebrating the release of the new 77-track box set, Produced by Tony Visconti. He is also the author of the book, Tony Visconti: The Autobiography: Bowie, Bolan and the Brooklyn Boy, published in 2007.
