Gene Burnett at Liquid Assets

Songwriter extraordinaire and guitarist Gene Burnett will perform music from his stockpile of original material — a collection that includes 28 full-length albums, among others — at 7 p.m. Monday, April 1, at Liquid Assets, 96 N. Main St., Ashland.

Burnett loves to share his songs with the world, and he doesn't let commerce stand between his music and his audience. Visit his website,, and discover an almost overwhelming number of free downloads.

What has come back so far is a little bit of money (he equipped his website with a virtual tip jar), some good gigs and many great friends. Between the website and his well-maintained YouTube channel, the 55-year-old songwriter and tai chi instructor feels he's reached a larger audience than during his previous 30 years of performing.
