TONIGHT: John Stein performs two sets for #VAHA New Bedford part of the Centre Street Sessions Series

 

Guitarist and composer John Stein returns to New Bedford as the featured artist for September’s virtual AHA night (VAHA) with Ed Lucie on electric bass and Mike Connors on drums. Recorded earlier at the New Bedford Art Museum (NBAM/Artworks), the two 45 minute sets will stream from the VAHA webpage and thereafter at AHA New Bedford’s Facebook page beginning at 5:30 and 7:15 on the evening of Sept. 10.

John Stein just retired from 36 years on the faculty of Berklee College in Boston, and his most recent CD, Watershed, was on the JazzWeek national radio chart for a record 28 weeks, including several weeks in the top 10 and peaking at #2.

For over 20 years, the city of New Bedford, MA has celebrated the second Thursday of every month as AHA (Art, History, Architecture) Night, and provided many events in the downtown area, including special activities for children, and always for no charge.

Centre Street Sessions usually take place in the Summer months of June through September outside, in the parking lot of Fiber Optic Center, in the heart of the Historic District and within the Whaling Heritage Historical National Park. Sponsored by AHA, Fiber Optic Center and Whaling City Sound these concerts have showcased many performers and enabled people to enjoy world-class music in a relaxed, informal, and acoustically comfortable setting.
