After the release of his evocative new album The Magic Tree on September 12th 2018, legendary American songwriter Steve Forbert has added new dates to his 2019 UK tour including a show as part of the annual international roots music celebration, Celtic Connections, on January 24th.
Produced by Karl Derfler (Tom Waits, Dave Matthews) The Magic Tree offers a series of songs gleaned from previously recorded acoustic demos, augmented with new backing tracks. The collection rings with the verve and vitality that Forbert’s fans have always come to expect.
Consistently upbeat and optimistic, the album’s songs recorded in Meridian, Nashville, New York, and New Jersey and Virginia convey a firm sense that age ought not diminish a lust for living. See him at Thorner Victory Hall on Friday 8th February.
