When Mississippi songwriter and former truck driver Steve Forbert first came on the scene in the late 1970s he was hailed as a new Southern Bob Dylan. He's shown the same kind of career longevity, but there's a warmth and innocence in his love songs that's all his own. Live and solo he's a magical presence, drawing an audience into his highly original and observant music without ever raising the volume of his distinctive rasp above conversation level. Steve has been incredibly prolific over the years, and each of his albums and shows is different. Come by and pick up a copy of the special 40th-anniversary vinyl edition of Steve's classic album "Jackrabbit Slim."
