We celebrate the 50th anniversary of STAGE FRIGHT, the trendsetting LP by one of rock’s most important bands, in STAGE FRIGHT at 50 - An Ovation. Our ensemble of sixteen musicians is led by co-producers John Heithaus and the multi-Grammy® winner Kevin McKendree, and features inspired original performances by seasoned Grammy™-winning and nominated artists, along with exceptional vocalists representing Nashville‘s growing crop of emerging talent. Our Ovation endeavors to carefully reimagine these classic songs with stellar roots-influenced musical arrangements and is complemented by our vocalists’ fresh artistic interpretations of each song - thereby exploring a wide range of emotions that all humans share: peace, escape, introspection, frivolity and more. The seminal LP peaked at #5 on the billboard album charts, surpassing the band’s first two commercial albums. Widely noted for its musically diverse and lyrically-rich songs, STAGE FRIGHT has been widely credited as a primary founding influence in American roots music, merging rock, country, blues influences - and inspiring countless songwriters and musicians around the globe. With a renewed respect and admiration for Messrs. Danko, Helm, Hudson, Manuel, and Robertson, we’re elated to present Stage Fright At 50 – An Ovation.
