Al Stewart @ City Winery / Nashville, TN / June 12, 2018

Al Stewart last played Nashville at the Bluebird some 15 years ago. Before that it had been 25 years since his last Music City show. At this pace, the next time he plays here, I will likely have exhausted my retirement account and will be unable to attend! But, tonight, Stewart and his small combo […]

The Posies @ City Winery / Nashville, TN / January 28, 2018

As soon as I got into my car after seeing The Posies at the City Winery, several questions about my evening with Seattle power-pop band started running through my head. The show featured only the core Posies duo of Jon Auer and Ken Stringfellow singing and playing electric guitars. While the twin axes made for […]

Micky Dolenz @ City Winery / Nashville TN / June 18, 2017

I have always considered The Monkees’ Micky Dolenz to be one of pop/rock’s all-time greatest vocalists. Whether sitting behind the drum kit or standing center stage, Micky has always been a consistently great singer with a strong, smooth, steady voice. Seeing him perform a solo show at age 72 at Nashville’s City Winery, I still […]

Alejandro Escovedo & Joe Ely @ City Winery / Nashville TN / August 12, 2017

The Alarm @ City Winery / Nashville, TN / July 27, 2017

After seeing a mind-blowing performance by Mike Peters and The Alarm in London this past May, there was no way I was going to miss them here in Music City. Of course, I could not help but wonder how Peters would transform his high-energy show to the much smaller City Winery stage in front of […]

Dave Davies @ City Winery / Nashville, TN / May 1, 2017

When the Nashville City Winery announced its opening in the fall of 2014, one of its featured initial shows was a November 30, 2014 Dave Davies show that never came to pass. Some two and a half years later, the legendary Kinks guitarist finally made it to the Winery stage in Music City. Playing in […]

Loudon Wainwright III @ City Winery / Nashville, TN / April 23, 2017

Loudon Wainwright III is one of a handful of artists that I have seen on stage in five different decades. He also is one of those rare performers with whom spending time in a small room like Nashville’s City Winery is more like visiting an old friend that paying to hear some stranger sing songs. […]
