Steve Forbert

Book tickets

More than four decades have passed since Steve Forbert made his way to New York City from his Meridian, Mississippi birthplace in quest of a career in music. Against staggering odds, he found blazing success early on with a string of critically acclaimed and commercially accepted albums.

His career had its share of triumphs as well as stumbles and disappointments as did his private life. Now, those life-changing experiences have been chronicled in Big City Cat: My Life In Folk Rock. The memoir offers a uniquely introspective view of a life and career during a period of cultural upheaval and Steve Forbert's emerging self-awareness over the course of his prolific 40+ year career.

Simultaneous with the release of his memoir, comes an evocative new Steve Forbert album entitled The Magic Tree. The album offers a series of songs gleaned from previously recorded acoustic demos, augmented with new backing tracks. The collection takes on special meaning in light of the recent health scare that sidelined him for several months. Consistently upbeat and optimistic, the album’s songs convey a firm sense that age ought not diminish a lust for living.

Nothing, nothing in this world, is going to stop Steve Forbert, and on that I’ll bet anything you’d care to wager
