Eastbound Jesus (CD Release) w/ Lucid (9:00 PM)
Putnam Den, 63A Putnam Street, Saratoga Springs, NY
EASTBOUND JESUS: Eastbound Jesus is a six piece acoustic/electric band from the small town of Greenwich, NY. They formed in the fall of 2010 in an old barn on the outskirts of their hometown and huddled around a hot wood-stove, they began writing music right away. Adam Brockway, Carl and Luke Anderson, Dave Wright, Dylan Robinson and Zack Infante take inspiration from all over the music spectrum to form a style all their own. Over a tight rhythm section, the group blends clever lyrics, unique vocal harmonies, solid strumming and picking, and rounds out their sound with lead instrumentation that is nothing short of on-point. ------------------------------------------------------------------- LUCID was born in a small Adirondack town called Plattsburgh: a place every band should be so lucky to call home. The locals there love live music, and give it their unrelenting support, while several colleges in the area provide a constant stream of new listeners eager to participate in the party. The town is flooded with musicians in one of the tightest and largest (per capita) music scenes in any city in America. On a given Friday night one can walk out of a bar where pulsing mambo beats drive the audience from their seats, into another where a frenzied crowd thrashes to raging death metal, into another where a cover band plays 80s favorites, and likely you will be followed by one or more of these musicians as they hop from band to band to play with their friends for a song or two. It is in this diverse and supportive environment that Lucid grew into adulthood.

But she takes it in her assured stride and, despite the love of a poet, she decides to marry and tame this dazzling revolutionary. Tanner, appalled by the whiff of domesticity, is tipped off by his chauffeur and flees to Spain, where he is captured by bandits and meets The Devil. An extraordinary dream-debate, heaven versus hell, ensues. Following in hot pursuit, Ann is there when Tanner awakes, as fierce in her certainty as he is in his. A romantic comedy, an epic fairytale, a fiery philosophical debate, Man and Superman asks fundamental questions about how we live.

Capital District Jazz presents the Mark Kleinhaut Quartet (7:30 PM)
Dee Sarno Theater at Saratoga Arts, 320 Broadway, Saratoga Springs
Capital District Jazz, Ltd invites you to attend a fund raising concert for its program All Ears: Jazz and Improvised Music Workshop, featuring the Mark Kleinhaut Quartet, on Wednesday evening June 3 at the Saratoga Arts Center's Dee Sarno Theater. <br /> <br />Jazz guitarist Mark Kleinhaut, a relative newcomer to Saratoga Springs, has been performing, composing and recording for decades. In 2013, Kleinhaut was included in Scott Yanow's book, The Great Jazz Guitarists, TheUltimate Guide published by Backbeat Books. During Kleinhaut's thirty year career, he has recorded over 60 compositions, released six albums including a JazzweekTop 20 disc with saxophonist Bobby Watson, and analbum with trumpeter Tiger Okoshi. Now, upon arrival in the capital region, he has set out to re-form his quartet by enlisting some of the most accomplished and respected musicians in the region to join him: Chris Pasin-trumpet, John Menegon-bass and Bob Halek-drums. Of this lineup Kleinhaut says, "I think of these gentlemen as alchemists bringing elements to the music that recombine in the moment to create something fresh, and truly spontaneous." The Mark Kleinhaut Quartet promises an evening of creative and energetic music that is melodic, uplifting and best of all fun. <br /> <br />Chris Pasin earned a dual degree at the New England Conservatory of Music in classical and jazz trumpet performance. He helped found the Medium Rare Big Bandwhich performed with Dizzy Gillespie, John Lewis, and Slide Hampton. He also performed with the George Russell orchestra and spent over two years touring with the Buddy Rich band. He spent several years with the Toshiko Akiyoshi/Lew Tabackin big band during FrankWess's tenure. <br /> <br />Bassist John Menegon was an integral member of the Dewey Redman Quartet, as well as the David "Fathead" Newman Quintet, spending over a decade performing, touring, and recording with each of them. Additionally,John has played many jazz luminaries including Joe Lovano, Pat Metheny , Jack DeJohnette Kenny Barron Slide Hampton, Sheila Jordan, and Matt Wilson to name but a few. <br /> <br />Percussionist Bob Halek has performed on the Food Network, Newport Jazz Festival, as well as concerts, festivals and clubs throughout the Northeast. In 2101 Halek was named district wide teacher of the year in the East Greenbush School District where he teaches instrumental music. His current schedule includes performances with The Empire Jazz Orchestra, Keith Pray's Big Soul Ensemble, The Capital Region Wind Ensemble, and City Rhythm. <br /> <br />Tickets are $15 and the proceeds of the concert will benefit the All Ears workshop. Please come and enjoy an evening of great music and help support this wonderful program. All Ears: Jazz and Improvised Music Workshop is a fun hands-on way for students of all ages to learn about jazz and improvised music. The instructors teach participants how to play using a traditional teaching method utilized by many of the jazz greats. This "play by ear" method develops a student's listening skills and along with the step-by-step guidance provided by the faculty, allows students to achieve results quickly. All Ears takes place in the summer at locations in the Capital District Region the first is being held at Schenectady Community College in July, scholarships and tuition assistance are available.

Sharon Lee & Steve Miller: "Dragon in Exile" (7:00 PM)
Northshire Bookstore, 422 Broadway, Saratoga Springs, NY 12866
Star-trading Clan Korval-known to Terrans as the Tree-and-Dragon Family and to the locals simply as "the Dragon"-has been convicted of crimes against the homeworld. No matter that one of the "crimes" consisted of saving the elitist planet of Liad from very real internal threats, the Council of Clans wanted Korval heads to roll. Unfortunately for the Council, the Dragon's allies conspired to impose a milder punishment for saving the world: banishment, rather than execution. Now relocated to the free-for-all world of Surebleak, the Dragon is under contract to keep the Port Road open to all traffic, and to back the New Bosses in imposing law and order on a society originally based on larceny and assassination. This modest rustication is going surprisingly well, until Korval discovers that the enemy they'd sought to destroy. . .wasn't quite destroyed, and is more determined than ever to eradicate Korval.

Directed by Jon Long (IMAX EXTREME), the story is told through the eyes of a group of people who helped create a cultural phenomenon. It is the story of a cultural revolution grounded in embracing the moment and doing what makes you feel the most alive. Through the eyes of some of the biggest names in action sports we experience an uprising that has changed the face of recreation in only a few decades. We discover how an electrifying new world came about through pure energy and imagination and the infinite possibilities of self-expression available to anyone willing to drop in. <br />Featuring top athletes across all the major action and outdoor sports like Tony Hawk, Kelly Slater, Gerry Lopez, Nyjah Houston, Danny Way, Jeremy Jones, Shane McConkey, Warren Miller, Robbie Maddison, Robby Naish, and Kai Lenny and standouts from the business world including Quiksilver founder Bob McKnight, Patagonia founder Yvon Chouinard, mountain biking pioneer Gary Fisher and surf filmmaking legend Bruce Brown (ENDLESS SUMMER).

Wanda the Wonderful (7:00 PM - 9:00 PM)
Skidmore College, Davis Auditorium
Skidmore College John B. Moore Documentary Studies Collaborative (MDOCS) Program Storytellers' Institute Presents: Carolyn Macartney <br /> <br />She had four husbands, but she only shot one of them...Wanda the Wonderful is a mixed-genre documentary Western, about a 1920's era gun slinging wild-woman, Wanda, and her journey from Indian Territory to sheep country, via the circus, Vaudeville, Hollywood and a brothel. It is a story about sacrifice, family, and the American West, what it means to forge your own way, and the realities behind a glamorous and exciting lifestyle. <br /> <br />Mixing narrative and documentary approaches to storytelling, Carolyn Macartney's film combines dramatic narrative, interviews, archival photographs, and 16mm 'atmospheric' footage. Centering on Wanda's relationship with her fourth husband, Wyoming sheep rancher Carl Hampton, Wanda's photographs along with interviews with family and friends flush out the stories and expand our understanding of the characters and family. <br /> <br />Carolyn Macartney works in photography and film, and hybrids thereof. She made her first film with a Double 8mm film camera that she found in her granny's attic to accompany her original electronic music composition. She included in this film B&W still photographs that she printed out (by hand in the darkroom) and then animated. The raw, provocative, fallible side of humanity is what interests her most. Carolyn's films have won awards at Ann Arbor Film Festival, Onion City Film Festival, Houston Worldfest and other juried screenings and have enjoyed success in screenings and festivals around the world. She has fourteen years of professional experience as a Director of Photography, having shot four feature length narrative films as well as numerous music videos, commercials, short films and documentaries. Carolyn's award winning still photography has been published and exhibited in the US and Europe. Among other honors, Carolyn has received an award for music composition, a DAAD scholarship to study painting at the Hochscule der Künste in Berlin, Germany, and a Kodak Faculty Scholars Award. Carolyn has lived in five different countries and in as many States within America. She received her BA in Art from Smith College and her MFA in Filmmaking from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

Will Bernard Trio (8:00 PM)
Parish Public House, 388 Broadway, Albany
A Berkeley, CA native and recent Brooklyn transplant, guitarist Will Bernard began playing and recording on an international level as a member of Peter Apfelbaum's Hieroglyphics Ensemble, who made their recorded debut with Don Cherry on MULTIKUTI (A&M 1989). Since then Will has participated in a host of boundary stretching groups, ranging from jazz, hip hop and world music to experimental music, with many stops in between. In the 90s Will recorded and performed with many projects under the direction of acclaimed producer Lee Townsend and worked with groups ranging from the Hindustani-influenced Jai Uttal to the political hip-hop group the Coup. The most successful of these projects was the group T.J. Kirk (with Charlie Hunter) whose sophomore album IF FOUR WAS ONE was nominated for a Grammy in 1997. <br /> <br />Will broke out as a bandleader in 1998 with the release of MEDICINE HAT (Antilles/Polygram), showcasing his expert chops and flair for funky, bottomheavy soul-jazz. He then followed up with two self produced albums on his own label, Dreck to Disk, before finding a new home on Palmetto Records. Will's debut recording for Palmetto Records, PARTY HATS, was released > February 20, 2007. Matt Balitsaris, President of Palmetto Records, welcomed Will: "We're psyched to have Will Bernard in the Palmetto family. He's a soulful player who writes groovy tunes with a distinctive point of view. PARTY HATS wants to live in your car." PARTY HATS was nominated for a Grammy Award in 2008 for best contemporary jazz album. <br /> <br />BLUE PLATE SPECIAL, Will's follow-up Palmetto recording, includes performances by Stanton Moore, Andy Hess and John Medeski. The album is scheduled for release on September 30th 2008, rounding out a prolific and momentous year for Will Bernard. As a player and composer, Will contributed to Bernard-Emer-Lackner-Ferber whose recording NIGHT FOR DAY helped to launch artist-run label Brooklyn Jazz Underground in April 2008. Following that, ROCKAMOVYA, comprised of Bernard, members of Groundation and reggae legend Leroy "Horsemouth" Wallace, was released in June 2008 on Young Tree. Will also toured extensively supporting PARTY HATS and the Stanton Moore Trio's second Telarc release EMPHASIS ON PARENTHESIS.

Nancy Reisman "Trompe L'Oeil" (6:00 PM)
Northshire Bookstore, 422 Broadway, Saratoga Springs, NY 12866
A reading, discussion and signing with Reisman, a Yaddo alumna and recipient of awards including the O. Henry Award. Reisman's book The First Desire was listed as a New York Times notable book of the year. <br /> <br />During a vacation in Rome, the Murphy family experiences a life-altering tragedy. In the immediate aftermath, James, Nora, and their children find solace in their Massachusetts coast home, but as the years pass the weight of the loss disintegrates the increasingly fragile marriage and leaves its mark on each family member. Trompe l'Oeil seamlessly alternates among several characters' points of view, capturing the details of their daily lives as well as their longing for connection and fear of abandonment. Through the turbulence of marriage, the challenges of parenthood, job upheavals, and calamities large and small, Trompe l'Oeil examines family legacies, the ways those legacies persist, and the ways they might be transcended. Nancy Reisman is a master of psychological acuity, creating characters who are wholly unique and yet express our own longings and anxieties. Trompe l'Oeil haunts not only with its story but also with the beauty of its insight into hopes, desires, and fears.

J. Roddy Walston - Alive at Five (5:00 PM)
Jennings Landing at the Corning Preserve
Forming in Cleveland, Tennessee in 2002, J. Roddy Walston & The Business devoted the next few years to earning a reputation as an incendiary live act that devotees aptly liken to "AC/DC fronted by Jerry Lee Lewis." Alongside touring with the likes of The Black Keys, Lucero and the Lumineers, J. Roddy Walston & The Business have brought their joyfully chaotic performance to such festivals as Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, and Bonnaroo. The band forces the oft-clashing worlds of art and rock-and-roll to make nice, dealing in a scrappy yet sublime sound that honors both their Southern roots and punk spirit. On their new album, Essential Tremors, J. Roddy Walston & The Business builds off that formula with a mix of heavy hooks and elegant melodies revealing their affinity for artists as disparate as Led Zeppelin, pre-disco-era Bee Gees, The Replacements, Randy Newman, and the Southern soul outfits that once populated the Stax Records label.

Richard Kendall, Clark Art Institute, Curator at Large <br />Exhibition curator Richard Kendall will discuss the research and origin of the exhibition and catalogue as well as the significance of its theme. Fundamental to the project has been a close study of the artist's work throughout his career and his rarely discussed preoccupation with the natural world, from flowers, birds, and insects to the majestic landscapes of rural Holland and the south of France. Still underestimated in many approaches to Van Gogh's art is his passion for reading, which included guides to nature, poetry that addressed the countryside, and literally hundreds of novels in Dutch, English, and French that celebrated rural life in an age of expanding towns and cities. This issue will also be explored in the lecture, which will be illustrated with works from Van Gogh and Nature and other sources. Free admission

Taking their "Adirondack freight train string music" from their Saranac Lake homebase to all points east, west, north and south, The Blind Owl Band's heavy regional touring has made them a live favorite across the land in just a few short years, appearing at major festivals and supporting acts like Trampled By Turtles, Floodwood and Railroad Earth. Pushing the very concept of roots music from all four sides during each performance, the Blind Owl Band reject the era of digital perfectionism by using the instruments of their ancestors to create a highly personal, contemporary sound all their own.

Yonder Mountain String Band - Alive at Five (5:00 PM)
Jennings Landing at the Corning Preserve
For nearly 17 years, Colorado's Yonder Mountain String Band has redefined bluegrass music, expanding the traditional acoustic genre beyond its previously established boundaries by steadily pushing the envelope into the realms of rock 'n' roll and improvisation. YMSB has always played music of their own design, in the process attracting a devout coterie of fans that often resembles a tight-knit family on an epic musical journey as Yonder traverses the country with an ever-rigorous tour schedule. Yonder is a quintessential ensemble honing its craft night after night on the road, and the fans are there to experience it in real time. The result is music that doesn't stand still, always progressing and breaking unprecedented ground. With their latest album, Black Sheep (scheduled for national release on their own Frog Pad Records at Telluride Bluegrass Festival on June 16, 2015), Yonder Mountain String Band - Adam Aijala (guitar, vocals), Dave Johnston (banjo, vocals) and Ben Kaufmann (bass, vocals), joined by new recruits violinist Allie Kral and mandolin virtuoso Jacob Jolliff - begins a new era. The first YMSB release produced by the band itself, Black Sheep is, by any measure, a triumph, perhaps the most mesmeric of their storied career.

Atlas Genius - Alive at Five (5:00 PM)
Jennings Landing Amphitheatre at the Corning Preserve
The members of Adelaide, Australia alternative rock band Atlas Genius do things a little differently. They set about building a studio where they could write and record music for their newly formed band three years before they even played their first live show as Atlas Genius. After months of installing drywall and flooring between songwriting sessions, the first song that Atlas Genius finished was "Trojans." The band posted their self-produced recording to the internet, and then pretty much forgot about it, going back to university to pursue more realistic careers. But as they crammed for their fall semester final exams, the blog Neon Gold discovered "Trojans" and wrote a post praising the song as sure to "invade your head, all dressed up in a clever disguise of earnest vocals riding a hooky riff." Checking the band's email account for the first time in over a month, they found their inbox being barraged by fans, record labels, booking agents and management companies from all over the world. The band continued to write and record new songs in relative isolation in their studio as word on "Trojans" spread organically across the internet, eventually selling over 100,000 singles and storming the Top 5 on the Modern Rock radio charts. Signing to Warner Bros. Records in 2012, Atlas Genius promptly issued the Through the Glass EP and their Billboard Top 200 debut full-length, When It Was Now, capturing the band's singular combination of sophisticated musicality and warm, wistful spirit - a sound NYLON praised as a "double whammy of high-flying pop melodies and instantly catchy lyrics," and led Billboard to deem the band part of "The Next Wave" of up-and-coming alternative bands.

The Edgar Winter Band - Alive at Five (5:00 PM)
Jennings Landing Amphitheatre at the Corning Preserve
By the time Edgar Winter left his hometown of Beaumont, Texas in the 1960s, he was already proficient in every aspect of music. A child prodigy, Edgar has found success in music, film and television. Edgar's immediate impact on the record business with his first record, Entrance, was followed up with two hit albums with his band White Trash, and he topped that success with The Edgar Winter Group, creating the number one hit "Frankenstein" as well as the ever-popular "Free Ride." The album They Only Come Out At Night peaked at number 3 on the Billboard charts and stayed on the chart for 80 weeks on its way to double platinum status. Edgar invented the keyboard body strap, an innovation that allows him the freedom to move around the stage during his high-energy multi-instrument performances. His music is always evolving and he is a master of stretching his skill and imagination to produce amazing results. He also is a prolific writer, with a volume of poetry and a collection of exciting stories in his writing repertoire. Edgar continues to be a musician at the top of his game, and he's proved he can do it all.

Three small town kids brought up on hard rock and psychedelic music in the '70s, Charmboy's members long for rock's bad ol' days. This is unapologetic guitar rock without gimmick or pretense. "As far as Charmboy are concerned, rock & roll might as well have died when Alice Cooper's original band dissolved in 1973. And by the sound of their debut Let It Feed, the power trio don't seem to care. Theirs is rock of the hard and psychedelic variety-you know, the way it was meant to be." (Metroland).

Heart (7:30 PM)
Palace Theater, 19 Clinton Avenue, Albany, NY 12207
Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees Ann and Nancy Wilson first showed the world that women can rock when their band, Heart, stormed the charts in the '70's with hits like "Crazy on You," "Magic Man," "Barracuda," "Straight On," and so many more. Not only did the Wilson sisters lead the band, they wrote the songs and played the instruments too, making them the first women in rock to do so. Heart continued topping the charts through the '80's and '90's with huge hits like "These Dreams," "Alone," "What About Love," "If Looks Could Kill," "Never," and a string of other hits that showcased the sisters' enormous talents as musicians, singers and songwriters. <br /> <br />As individuals, the sisters have also achieved significant success. Ann sang on songs that were both chart successes and motion picture themes, like "Almost Paradise" from Footloose, "Best Man in the World" from The Golden Child, and "Surrender to Me" from Tequila Sunrise, while Nancy composed and performed the scores to a half dozen motion pictures including the award winning "Jerry Maguire" and "Almost Famous."

RaeLynn - Alive at Five (5:00 PM)
Jennings Landing Amphitheatre at the Corning Preserve
With her empowering Top 20 hit, "God Made Girls," RaeLynn had the highest charting debut single by a solo female artist in 2014. The song skyrocketed to the #1 spot on the iTunes Country Songs chart and earned gold certification by the RIAA for sales exceeding 500,000 copies, in addition to the music video garnering over 12 million views. The music video has earned her a pair of CMT Music Award nominations for Female Video of the Year and Breakthrough Video of the Year. Now, her follow-up single, "For A Boy," is available on iTunes. RaeLynn is currently the #5 biggest selling female country artist in the last year. The vibrant 20-year-old was selected as one of CMT's Next Women of Country and recently released the Me EP. RaeLynn penned the collection of five tracks for The Valory Music Co. project, which climbed into the Top 5 on iTunes' Top Country Albums chart on release day. Taste of Country insists, "fans of every age will find a trio of lyrics to get behind" and Popcrush calls her "cheerful, charming, ultra-talented and downright hilarious." Just like her musical hero Dolly Parton, RaeLynn embraces her country roots with a flash of pizzazz, commemorating her Grand Ole Opry debut with an "Op-Rae Selfie" from center stage. The Voice season 2 alum, who has returned to the show to perform, is featured on "Buzzin'" from coach Blake Shelton's new album. So far this year, she has toured on fellow Texan Miranda Lambert's Certified Platinum Tour and will hit the road with Rascal Flatts' Riot Tour 2015 this summer. This past March, RaeLynn partnered with the National Association for Music Education and Give a Note Foundation to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Music in Our Schools Month. To support the foundation's mission and encourage music students nationwide, RaeLynn penned "Always Sing," which is available on iTunes.

Blotto - Alive at Five (5:00 PM)
Jennings Landing Amphitheatre at the Corning Preserve
Legendary live performers, clever musical satirists and music video pioneers, Albany's Blotto made quite a splash when the clip for their now-classic ode to summer "I Wanna Be a Lifeguard" aired nationally on MTV's first day of operation. The band spent years thrilling packed houses up and down the East Coast with hysterical high-energy shows that were part rock-and-roll and part improv comedy before going their separate ways in 1984 (although they never really called it quits - as guitarist Broadway Blotto puts it, "breaking up's too much trouble.") A chance meeting with Blue Öyster Cult's Buck Dharma led to the infamous 1982 "Blot and Blue" arena tour, as well as a collaboration on the song "Metalhead" on Blotto's 1982 LP Combo Akimbo, with Buck playing lead guitar and producing and appearing in the hit video. Blotto and BÖC shared the Alive at Five stage back in 1996; don't miss this special encore of a classic pairing, nearly 20 years in the making!

Blue Oyster Cult - Alive at Five (5:00 PM)
Jennings Landing Amphitheatre at the Corning Preserve
For over four decades, Blue Öyster Cult has been thrilling fans of intelligent hard rock worldwide with powerful albums loaded with classic songs. Indeed, the Long Island, NY-based band is revered within the hard rock and heavy metal scene for its pioneering work. Blue Öyster Cult occupies a unique place in rock history because it's one of very few hard rock/heavy metal bands to earn both genuine mainstream critical acclaim as well as commercial success. The band is often cited as a major influence by other acts such as Metallica, and BÖC was listed in VH1's countdown of the greatest hard rock bands of all time. Upon the release of BÖC's self-titled debut album in 1972, the band was praised for its catchy-yet-heavy music and lyrics that could be provocative, terrifying, funny or ambiguous, often all in the same song. BÖC's canon includes three stone-cold classic songs that will waft through the cosmos long after the sun has burned out: the truly haunting "(Don't Fear) The Reaper" from 1976's Agents of Fortune, the pummeling "Godzilla" from 1977's Spectres and the hypnotically melodic "Burnin' for You" from 1981's Fire of Unknown Origin. The intense creative vision of BÖC's original core duo of vocalist/lead guitarist Donald "Buck Dharma" Roeser and vocalist/rhythm guitarist Eric Bloom are complemented by Richie Castellano on guitar and keyboards, and the longtime rhythm section of bass guitarist Kasim Sulton and drummer Jules Radino. BÖC has always maintained a relentless touring schedule that brings new songs and classics to everyone from original fans to, as Bloom puts it, "teenagers with green hair."

Mixed Messages, commissioned by The Philadelphia Orchestra, will have its world premiere in May 2015 in Philadelphia and its New York premiere at Carnegie Hall, and will be one of the works performed on the Orchestra's 2015 Tour of Europe. Finally, in keeping with time-honored tradition, the Orchestra will conclude its 2015 residency with its annual performance of Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture.

Eric Paslay-Vapor Live (7:00 PM)
Vapor Night Club-Saratoga Casino and Raceway
Born in Abilene, Texas and raised in Waco and Temple. By the age of 16, Paslay had already written and recorded 10 songs that he played out around Texas. When Paslay moved to Nashville to pursue a music career, he eventually landed his own deal with the Cal IV in 2006. His songwriting and his impressive voice began garnering attention from labels and he signed with EMI Records Nashville. Paslay says he began writing songs because he wanted to sing them for people. "I turn it on when I get on stage. I love to entertain," says Paslay. Fans who have seen him on stage will testify there is so much more to the tall, Texas redhead than his excellent songwriting ability. Paslay is a charismatic performer and a potent vocalist who knows how to connect with an audience. As his hit singles "Friday Night" and "Song About A Girl" reach the upper level of the charts, Paslay has arrived as an artist in his own right.

Legendary musician and songwriter Mark Knopfler will celebrate the release of his new record, Tracker with a North American tour that includes a stop at Albany's Palace Theatre. <br /> <br />Says Knopfler, 'Part of the fun is thinking what you might have a go at, for a new tour. For me, that's part of the joy of it, getting that little crew together again, and setting sail once again. It's a real adventure.' Knopfler has always viewed touring as the final part of the process running from songwriting through recording and ending up on the road performing old and new songs. He now writes more music while actually on the road. <br /> <br />A multiple Grammy award winner as the lead vocalist and songwriter for Dire Straits, Knopfler has released seven solo albums as well as recording Neck And Neck with one of his guitar heroes, Chet Atkins and collaborated with Emmylou Harris on All The Roadrunning. He has created soundtracks for Local Hero and The Princess Bride and is currently working on a new film, Altamira. In addition to producing his own records Knopfler has also produced albums for Bob Dylan and Randy Newman amongst others.
