Kevin Ward, Friday, Nov 22, 7pm
Join us for a sneak preview of guest artist from Atlanta GA, Kevin Ward’s aptly named project “Long Overdue”. Finally emerging from the basement, Kevin’s album will feature contributions from some of Nashville’s finest talent — Pat Bergeson (guitar/harmonica), John Knowles (classical guitar), Tim and Myles Thompson (guitar/mandolin/fiddle), Ron de la Vega (bass & cello) and David Northrup (drums/percussion). Long Overdue is produced by recording artist Antsy McClain and will release this December 2019.
This Friday is sure to be a captivating evening as Kevin musically paints the stories of the world he’s lived in — encompassing a broad range of human experience from his childhood in Lebanon, to war, addiction, love and more. Kevin’s songs are written and performed in an intelligent and intimate style. His music is informed by classical, jazz and fingerstyle guitar. And there’s no cover.
