Best known for his hit songs "Romeo's Tune" and "Goin' Down to Laurel," Grammy Award-nominated folk-rock singer-songwriter Steve Forbert was touted as a "new Dylan" when he burst upon the scene in downtown New York in the mid-1970s.

Originally from Meridian, Miss., Forbert traveled to New York in 1976 and played for spare change in Grand Central Station while seeking work in the local folk venues. He quickly garnered folk club dates, but also performed at CBGB's, the wellspring of punk-rock, where he became a favorite of the crowd for his dynamic, energetic, non-stop performances that owed as much to the Ramones as to Bob Dylan.

Forbert is in the midst of a creative revival this year: "Compromised," his first album of new songs in several years, is due out this summer, and his memoir, "Steve Forbert: Beyond the Chandelier," is scheduled for publication in fall 2015.

Song for the EARTH

Blue Ribbon Trio and Patchwork Symphony headline "Song for the EARTH," a benefit concert for Hawthorne Valley School's EARTH program. The event celebrates the second anniversary of Hawthorne Valley's unique EARTH curriculum, with music by musicians who themselves are tied closely to the land and Hawthorne Valley Farm.

Blue Ribbon Trio features singer-guitarist "Sauerkraut" Seth Travins, and Patchwork Symphony features guitar and vocals by Wesley Nichols and Alex Wernquest. Attendees will learn about the unique EARTH curriculum from faculty, students and parents while helping to support the future of the program.
