Stuart Hamm

Here’s a tour you won’t want to miss: Stuart Hamm will be hitting the road in June for his “Solo Bass Songs and Stories Tour”. The trek, which focuses on the Northeast and parts of Canada, will have the bass legend performing songs from his latest album, The Book of Lies, plus new music including his petite suite for solo bass. He’ll also be sharing stories and anecdotes from his storied career to entertain musicians and non-musicians alike.

“I promise an entertaining evening of music and stories from my 43 years of playing bass with some of our generation’s’ greatest musicians!” Hamm writes in a press release.

The tour kicks off June 2nd in New Hope, Pennsylvania and will head to New York, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Ontario, Michigan, Kentucky, Ohio, and West Virginia. It’s scheduled to wrap up June 17th at the PGH Winery in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Hamm is a distinguished bassist whose resume includes work with Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Eric Johnson, Michael Schenker, Frank Gambale, and many more. The tour will also include a masterclass at the Spectrum in New York City.
