(Jun 29, 2012) —
.—On Sunday, July 15, the 2012 Starlight Summer Concert Series
will continue the tradition of summer nights full of musical entertainment with an
evening featuring Louisiana-based guitarist Eric Lindell
. The performance begins at 7:30 p.m. at the Legacy Gazebo Amphitheater on campus.
, director of the Dr. Bobbie Bailey & Family Performance Center, describes Lindell’s
music as “a smooth blend of guitar-driven blues, blue-eyed soul, and the unique blend
of sounds that New Orleans music is known for. It's a feel-good, rootsy sound that
makes it hard to sit still while listening to it.” Lindell’s musical style borrows
from 1970s blues-rock, creating a mix of powerful soul, blues, R&B and jazz with a
dash of country.
Described as a “tremendous talent with a poet’s soul” by Chicago Sun Times, Lindell’s
KSU performance is part of his “I Still Love You” CD release tour, his third album
with Alligator Records. With praise from USA Today to The Los Angeles Daily News,
Lindell’s “shuffling interplay of electric guitars, percolating organs and Creole
horns” is reminiscent of a cafe in New Orleans.
Admission at the Legacy Gazebo Amphitheater opens at 6 p.m. General admission tickets
are $8 and table reservations for six are $75. Table reservations must be made at
least one week in advance. For more information, including directions and parking,
The next Starlight concert is July 29 featuring Country Music Awards and Grammy Award-winner
