NEW HARTFORD — Singer-songwriter John Ford Coley will perform at the Parrott Delaney Tavern in New Hartford Saturday night.

Ford Coley is best known as half of the Grammynomi­nated duo England Dan & John Ford Coley. Popular throughout the 1970s, the duo released 11 albums and nine singles in their career and are best known for their 1976 single “I’d Really Love to See You Tonight,” a No. 2 pop hit and No. 1 Adult Contempora­ry hit.

They had six Top 40 singles between 1976 and 1979. Among their classic hits are “Love Is the Answer,” “I’d Really Love to See You Tonight,” “Nights Are Forever Without You,” “It’s Sad to Belong,” and “We’ll Never Have to Say Goodbye Again.”

After the duo disbanded, Ford Coley began an acting career, making several television and film appearance­s in the 1980s. He returned to an active touring schedule in the 1990s, along with serving as co-producer for artists such as Eddie Money.

He has also written his autobiogra­phy, “Backstage Pass,” which tells fascinatin­g tales of his many years in the music business. Ford Coley still undertakes a busy tour schedule, performing to devoted audiences worldwide.
