The festival, on now until March 25, will feature the Oates performance ay the historic Wheeler Opera House in Aspen, Colorado this Sunday.

Oates created the Aspen Songwriters Festival three years ago and hand-picked Nathanson for the bill.

“So much incredible music and talent jammed into one of the most a beautiful spots on earth,” raves Nathanson, who is taking time off from the Kelly Clarkson tour to return for the second year in a row. “John Oates has started something really special… I’m fortunate to be a part of it.”

“This year is going to be off the hook with an incredible line-up of legendary songwriters,” said John, who founded the festival near his home three years ago. “We have worked hard to make this the premier songwriting event in America.”

Other performers include J.D. Souther and Carrie Rodriguez (3/23) and Marc Broussard, Vertical Horizon’s Matt Scannell and Sophie B. Hawkins (3/24).

Proceeds benefit the Love Hope Strength Foundation, in their ongoing mission to build cancer centers and bone marrow donation registries worldwide, and the 7908 Foundation, supporting the future of the Aspen Songwriters Festival and its educational mission.
