Special Concert Series – Sept. 2nd featuring Steve Forbert and Webb Wilder
Hall of Famers Forbert and Wilder on Sucarnochee Revue!
The Sucarnochee Revue’s Special Concert Series features Mississippi Music Hall of Famers Steve Forbert and Webb Wilder September 2nd at the Temple Theater in Meridian at 7 pm.
Revue host Jacky Jack White explains, “Twice this year in September, the 2nd here in Meridian and the 16th at the University of West Alabama in Livingston, the Sucarnochee Revue will feature Hall of Fame caliber artists. Meridian favorite son Steve Forbert will join Hattiesburg’s Webb Wilder for the Temple Theater show and Bob Wootton and the Tennessee Three will headline the UWA show in Livingston. With the great feedback from the public television series, stage shows, and the radio programs, we think the Concert Series is the next step in the Revue’s evolution.”
Webb Wilder (born John Webb McMurry, May 19, 1954, Hattiesburg, Mississippi) is a musician who has successfully mixed the sounds of country, surf guitar and rock & roll into a style known as “swampedelic”. His first album, It Came From Nashville, was released in 1986. Since then, Webb has developed a large following from his highly personal original music and road shows. Wilder also produced an award-winning collection of short films under the title of Corn Flicks. He currently resides in Nashville, Tennessee.
Steve Forbert is a Meridian pop music singer-songwriter best known for his song “Romeo’s Tune”, which reached #11 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1980.
Critics once hailed him as the “new Bob Dylan”, given his similar vocal timbre and thoughtful songwriting. Although commercial success has proven uneven, his regard among music peers and aficionados has steadily grown. Forbert still enjoys a heavy schedule of live performances as well as recording and producing. His catalog of songs have been recorded by several artists, including Rosanne Cash, Keith Urban, Marty Stuart and the aforementioned Webb Wilder.
Tickets are $15 at the door.
