BIG STEVIE ORBIT: Roots folk rocker veteran Steve Forbert returns April 29.
Saturday April 29, 2023 07:00 PM EDT
Cost: $23+
CL Critic Hal Horowtiz Recommends: Frequent Eddie’s visitor Forbert returns for another go-round of his eternally youthful rootsy folk rocking. This near 70 year-old troubadour supports 2022’s fine Moving Through America. It’s yet another slice of the affable Americana the scratchy voiced Forbert has trademarked since his still fresh 1978 debut. He’s a classic troubadour and with 45 years of experience, knows how to deliver a great live show. - HH

From the venue:

Steve Forbert

Years before Americana music earned its own category at the Grammy Awards, Steve Forbert helped pioneer the genre’s mix of folk, roots-rock, and richly delivered storytelling. He’s been a torchbearer of that sound for more than four decades since, navigating the twists and turns of an acclaimed career that’s taken him from gold records to Grammy nominations, from New York City’s CBGB to Nashville’s Bluebird Cafe, from his 1978 debut album to 2022’s vital and versatile Moving Through America.

Backed by the same band that appeared on his collection of cover songs, Early Morning Rain, in 2020, Steve Forbert fills Moving Through America with songs that are every bit as spirited as “Romeo’s Tune,” his Top 20 hit from 1979’s gold-certified Jackrabbit Slim. The album marks the latest chapter in a story that’s still unfolding, with Forbert serving as an elder statesman of Americana music while continuing to create music that’s spry and steadfast.
